About Me



Don't believe my references..... they are way to positive! ( not kidding)

My Website :

In January 2013 I left Japan after having lived there for 14 years.
I am a wanna be vegetarian, at home I don't cook any fish or meat but when eating out I still like the taste of a burger.


The golden mean is the desirable middle between two extremes.


Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Used to host ...... now I am the surfer.
My host are too good to me though..... I have to be a better host once I have a place again.


Every time again I think when is my luck gonna end....
keep meeting such wonderful people through couchsurfing !


Photography, movie making, hiking, swimming, travelling, cooking for guests, going out, drinking coffees with friends, watching movies, TRYING to grow herbs, veggies and beautifull flowers on my balcony.
