About Me

I traveled for 40 months around the world and now I am back to regular life.
I want to hear about your travels!!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

The beautiful people


Like to take a drive to a river, lake or the sea and just sit in silence and watch the water for a while - leaving all thoughts behind and listen to the nature.. boring but soul food!
Love to walk around new places i never been before and just see what it looks, smells and sounds like.
Enjoy sitting on a cafe by a busy street watching people
Like mountain trekking and biking
Have seen lots of movies - my favourites include Star Wars, Tarantino flicks, Horror and Comedy.
Like to party.
During summertime i try to get time to ride my motorcycle and my jetski when im not just lying in the sun enjoying the heat.
Wintertime i try to get some snowboarding and snowmobile trips done.

Music, Movies, and Books

AC/DC, rammstein, Tiesto.. I more or less listen to most kind of music but tend to choose rock and roll most of the time. I also like to listen to blues and sometimes Jazz. Dont mind the radio and the music that is most played there either.
Movies - Star wars, groundhog day, pulp fiction, Trainspotting, Indiana Jones, Rocky, Bloodsport, Scarface, Nightmare on elm street are some of my favorites
