Travelling and getting to see the world, to meet strangers and getting to know foreign cultures, to promote my self-realization and to change the world into a better one
I'm a very open-minded, tolerant person, who is interested in meeting people from other cultures to learn something about them, to discuss ideas for a better world with others and to see something from the world, I'm very direct and fair-minded, humorous :-). Above all Iâm a smoker.
. . . During the last years my life was for me the permanent struggle to range between the rigour of everyday life on the one hand and reality on the other hand and my resistant will to not give up my ideals but rather realise and come up to them was forming me. And I always was in opposition in contrary against the permanent efforts to train me and the compulsion to make me adjust to the surround.
My life was characterised of making the best of a bad job. But by now IÃÂ¢Ãâ¬Ãâ¢m tired of these compromises, and I try to actualize my-self. I noticed that I canÃÂ¢Ãâ¬Ãâ¢t live in a this orderly and normative way of life. In the lenght of time I would break down at it . . . On that account I will get out of here, undergo the world and carry out and convert my identity. I search for alternative and other types of modes of live. IÃÂ¢Ãâ¬Ãâ¢d like to meet new interesting people.
Maybe all this sounds a little bit affected and egoistical. Possibly it is affected and egoistical. But I intend to add to change for the better all over the world.
I have clear and definite positions and sights.IÃÂ¢Ãâ¬Ãâ¢m used to deputise them, because the silent populaceÃÂ¢Ãâ¬Ãâ¢s opportunisme makes sure, that again and again lonserving politicians and influetial people are sitting in the corridors of power: they decide about our future.
I trust in equality, freedom and justice for all humans, in the potency of broad-mindedness and in the odds of a society multicultural. I buy into pacifism and antifascism, into the success of emancipation and into the integration of disadvantaged groups.
I defeat each form of nationalism aswell as conservative ideas, because this things donÃÂ¢Ãâ¬Ãâ¢t bring forward our world. On the contrary, they retard a further development into a livable better world.
Than IÃÂ¢Ãâ¬Ãâ¢m a broad-minded man and I think not only one world-view can be the right, but also all roads lead to Rome.
"We look at the same stars, we share the skies, the identical universe is implicating us. Wherefore is it significant by which doctrine whoso treys to reach the truth? You canÃÂ¢Ãâ¬Ãâ¢t detecte thatch a superior secret only by one lane." (Symmachus, 400 AD)
I hope not having discouraged no one with these clear statetement. It comes across very rigorous and clear. But usualy I am really friendly and enjoyable. But I have clear ideas and I would put them into words.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I haven't had any experiences till now . . . but I look forward to make some
learning foreign languages â although my actual knowledge isn't very well^^, sports -> I'm an enthusiastic football fan and I try to do jogging every day, but the time sometimes is too limited and sometimes Iâm simple to lazy for it.
I like modern art and photography, literature, fantastic or historic novels and whydunit stories like Henning Mankellâs )â but now I haven't enough time to read all the books I want :-/, politics and history, philosophy, psychology . . .
