About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To create more than I consume, experience life from different points of view, party down and end all the suffering!

ABOUT ME

I enjoy!

Painting stuff, partying, reading is what I do most on weekends I guess! Weekdays are mostly work, gym, eat, sleep.

I love discussing life and all it encompasses, have been considering myself a secular buddhist for a year or so.

PHILOSOPHY

Non-dualism, optimism with a sprinkle of pragmatism. Though not in the "be pragmatic" holier-and-smarter-than-thou kind of way. I hope.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I've hosted a couple of people and had coffee with a some. Been hosted for two nights in Bergen, Norway. Accidentally ran into a couch surfing group at a pub in Stockholm. It's been pretty great, and I hope to keep meeting new people until I die!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Best couch surfing experience so far was the good friendship I developed with Sofia. After hosting her, I've visited her in Prague twice. We've done a lot of walking, appreciating the city, gone to great restaurants and pubs (far away from tourists) and checked out the culture. We'll see each other again, for sure. I'm very glad couch surfing has already created real friendship, not just fleeting hellos and goodbyes.
