About Me


optimizing time & space


The very least to say in short: I am pro-polyglott...
I may be a bit misantropic at times, but in fact am very curious about "humans", how they live, what they do... and how "we" can share more, be positive to the other.


being authentic, trying to be nice to nature

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I enjoy getting to know people from different places with different perspectives. Please come to see mine.


My experience is that couchsurfng is hard to do in bigger cities..., but it might sometimes work. I have had some great hosts especially in Chile! ;o) mutual enrichment...


languages, travelling, improving... (now that is a big notion)

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: there are soo many great movies and I hardly remember their names :-/ now just trying to remember more recent ones: "4 luni, 3 saptamani, 2 zile"; "Persepolis"; "La Question Humaine"; "Control"; "Volver"; etc.

Music: As a (former) musician, I love music... "world music", such as Zdob si Zdub, Fara Zahar, Hedningarna, Värttinää, Cameron de la Isla, ... - in more commercialised terms, I do enjoy Radiohead, System of a Down, Pink Floyd, Beirut, Louise Attacque and the like.

Books: also many. special likings of French literature: Eric-Emmanuel Schmidt (esp. "Le Visiteur"); Amélie Nothomb; Michel Houllebecq.
Have you read Naomi Klein's "The Shock Doctrine"? It is stunning...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Northern Russian village at -25°C;
boat ride between Los Roques in Venezuela;
extensive car cruises throughout Europe...

Teach, Learn, Share

pretty open-minded; I like to laugh and achieve things together.
people usually also find it interesting to discuss with me, though. :o)

What I Can Share with Hosts

time & space, but also thoughts and perspectives ^^
you now have our living room with a mattress or a bed - kitchen and everything is shared in our apartment inhabited by 3 nice people
