About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I gotta go somewhere .

ABOUT ME

I really like being surprised.

I think that means finding something new.

So I spend a lot of time searching for something that doesn't for me exist yet.

My favorite thing is to be barefoot in a sleeping bag in a tent for all the strange times wandering it reminds me of.

PHILOSOPHY

Find or make something to smile about.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Hosting and surfing:)

I must do more of both.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've couchsurfed in Romania, Belgium, England, Amsterdam and Budapest and have had a couple couchsurfers come to stay with me in Johannesburg.

I've couchsurfed without the site through at first strangers homes for over 2 solid years altogether.

Interests

I really like festivals. Most summers of the past years I've spent hitchhiking around and volunteering from one to the next.

I like drawing and doing weird things with code and math and building complicated machines out of lego.

This past while I've been learning a lot of weird surprise things about music and nutrition but those are just what I'm getting lost in for now.

I love my dog very much. His personality and sense of humor is quite amazing:)

Music, Movies & Books

Lots of Murakami and Russian classics at the moment.

Piles of classic novels

I used to read every available waking moment. Sometimes I still do:)

I've liked and loved a lot of music from so many genres and music's taken me on me on so many crazy adventures and still does.

Aphex Twin can go here, cos' he's my favourite musician.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

There's so much:)

I'm quite a hardcore traveler. I started young, without any money, and spent years making my way around.

It's been a good life.

Teach, Learn, Share

Having a never to be used tin or 2 of beans buried in your backpack makes traveling rough way less stressful.

Being in the habit of smiling makes the world a better place.

Stuffing in 2 extra pairs of socks is almost always worth it.

If you're asking for directions asking 3 different for them before heading off almost always saves time.

If you're far away from home the only reason to be shy is when you really need caution. Or to be polite:) Talk to a lot of strangers, mostly listen...
