About Me

52 year old man, proud father of 2 wonderful sons.
I love to travel, I love nature as well as culture in general.
I had a wonderful experience travelling to Australia for one month in March 2015 where I had my first experience with couch surfing and I was extremely satisfied and happy with it.
If you believe in your dreams, they will happen!
I am sensitive about environmental issues and animal protection.
I am vegan but it does not bother me what other people eat around me. I respect everybody's choices.
