About Me

CURRENT MISSION

On the road to find out.

ABOUT ME

'You are strange... but in a good way.'
'Laid back.'
'Unshaven.'
'You should see him dance! He can dance like Shakira!'
'Eyebrows!'
"Full of positive energy, always in a good mood, always willing to help"
'What do you need that sledgehammer for?'
'Man, you're overthiniking things. Relax.'
'Dude, you can't just... oh. Well I guess you can.'
'Sir, I need you to get down from that tree. Now.'

PHILOSOPHY

I try (and fail more often than not) to emulate a wise homeless guy who once said a lot of pretty neat stuff like 'love your enemies', 'love your neighbor as yourself'.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I've hosted mostly. Have not gotten the chance to surf yet.
I welcome guests into my home to extend hospitality and friendship. I am not here to be used as a hotel/hostel.
I'd appreciate a book or music recommendation in your couch request - that way I also know you actually read through my profile :)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Horrible, funny, surprising, pleasant, sad, shocking, happy, confusing. And sometimes, all at once. It's been fun.
I once had a guy over. He wasn't exactly friendly or chivalrous by Austrian standards but he was very honest. That was actually pretty awesome. I appreciate honesty a lot.

Interests

I give playing Guitar+Bass a try, Martial arts, camping, hiking, climbing trees, taking apart and repairing bicycles, cooking & eating the stuff I cook. In general I really enjoy being outdoors and exploring.
I tend to binge eat information on whatever I currently take interest in.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

When I was taught thankfulness it changed everything: how I saw food, warm showers, the stuff I own, a warm bed, good friends.
Be thankful not because someone else might have less but be thankful for the abundance you live in.

Teach, Learn, Share

A few tips and tricks for camping, building fires, hanging hammocks.

What I Can Share with Hosts

A bed/couch/floor, depending on my schedule a short or extensive walk in the city with a bit of historical background on different sites
aaand probably food :P
On a side note: I am the kind of guy who will ask everybody to sit on the carpet if there aren't enough chairs for everybody. If possible I will rather host you even when I'm busy than to not host you at all.

Belgium, Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany, Guinea, Ireland, Italy, Liberia, Liechtenstein, Philippines, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Switzerland, Vatican City State
