About Me

PLEASE READ also the read more (or MY HOME) PART🔊🔊🔊

I decided to slow down in receiving guests.
I had more than 1100 guests and I need/want a bit more time for myself!
So don't be disappointed if I just say NO!
I also like to invite guests sometimes if I see an interesting profile!

ABOUT ME
Start your request at least with MY NAME so not: Hey or Hi dude!
Read also the 'READ MORE' part please.

I am a quiet and easygoing not judgemental person and that is also what I expect from others.

PHILOSOPHY

It costs less energy to be nice to people. A smile in the morning is so much better then a curse. So please: Just be nice to others: straight, gay, young, old doesn't matter!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I like to share my house with others, but I CAN'T PAY FOR ALL THE FOOD AND DRINKS. So we have to find a solution for that. Don't see me as a free place for everything.

I GET VERY MANY REQUESTS SO STATE WHY YOU CHOOSE ME!!!!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I hosted around 1100 people now in over 8 years.
And by far most people are good!

Interests

I love Amsterdam and so I like to show the city to others.
I am interrested in people, architecture, films, music, food/cooking, massages, gardening and talking. Before I stopped working I worked as a graphic designer (for schoolbooks).
I love all kind of games, but mostly cardgames.
I DON'T LIKE PEOPLE WHO SPEND ALL THEIR TIME ON THEIR TABLET OR PHONE!

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: Far from heaven, Cabaret, Hollow reed, Wit, Angels in America, Clockwork Orange, una journata particulare, call me by your name etc. Cubrick, Hitchcock, Almodovar, Fellini, Kislovsky, von Trotta, Fassbinder, Bergman etc.
The ones I prefer most are the ones that make me think.
The music goes from Bach to the beatles. No hard rock or heavy methal. Not so much a rapper either.
I like to read, but I don't have special favourites

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I think that a visite to the Galapagos Isles was one of the most impressive.
For 5 years I had a relation with a woman and a man at the same time.

Teach, Learn, Share

I like to cook. I like giving (and receiving) massages, BUT to prevent 'misunderstandings' YOU HAVE TO ASK FOR ONE (I don't offer.). I love to learn about other food, religions and countries.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can cook for you, give you a massage, take you out for a citytour and, most important: I love long conversations.

Countries I’ve Visited

Austria, Belgium, Brazil, China, Cuba, Czech Republic, Ecuador, Egypt, France, Germany, Greece, Guatemala, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Italy, Luxembourg, Mexico, Nepal, Norway, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Switzerland, Thailand, Viet Nam

Countries I’ve Lived In
