About Me

None at the moment

I've had the chance to do a fair amount of traveling because of my job, vacations, lived abroad with my family and the two year sabbatical break I took.
I've worked in the Navy for some time now and I like sometimes work as a scuba diving instructor in my spare time
I enjoy looking forwards to meeting new people and traveling is definitely one of the things I enjoy doing the most. I've already met great people on the road which has given my travels a whole different perspective.

Live and let live.
Never miss out on a good opportunity.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I've participated in events in different cities, hosted a few people, couchsurfed in different places and mostly have met couchsurfers by meeting for drinks or other activities while traveling.


Scuba Diving has become a big, big hobby for me after having worked on it for a year in Australia.
I travel whenever I can and I enjoy outdoor activities such as camping, hiking, biking, etc. I really like Photography as a hobby.
Dining, partying, etc.
