Depends who's asking... my previous motto was; "four years to make a million" - we can decide on the currency later, which has not yet realized, time tic's on - 1 year left. ;-) I know what I want, but sometimes wait too long - as I believe in the saying; "good things come to those who wait".
But before you think I'm all about money - that's the way I see business, not friendships. Money can't buy the latter and therefore it's priceless. I enjoy a good solid friendship based on mutual respect in a relaxed fashion... :-) You wanna know more - meet me!
Live and let live...
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I heard about it, and joined... that was step one. Step two, I went to the Cape Town CS Group's regular Friday get-together at Rafiki's, hosted, surfed and well go to the occasional CS meeting here and there.
A little... we've hosted a number of people so far, became good friends with many surfers, yet have not surfed much myself. I stayed with some x-surfers during my recent EU trip, and enjoyed the experience very much - t'is a great way to get straight into local culture and experience a country and it's people the way they really are - thus not the "touristy-commercial" way. And that is what we want to give you! ;-)
Cars... BMW's and classic's. Ok, I know there's more to life than cars, but I just state it here for the record. Traveling, reading, good wine, cooking, the occasional cigar, cycling, mountaineering. This list will just grow!
Music, Movies, and Books
Movies: Anything that makes me think, good storyline. I hate no-brain American comedies.
Music: Heavy Metal, good old-school Rock, Kwaito, Rap and even some classical stuff like Vennessa May.
Books: Anything of Paulo Ceolho and Illusions & One of Richard Bach; The Da Vinci Code, Trips, Blink; Rich dad poor dad; Sherlock Holmes, the original Conan Doyle version, Extremely loud & Incredibly close; Around Africa on my bike, too many to mention.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Victoria Waterfall, the Drakensberg and the Swiss Alps.
Teach, Learn, Share
Cooking, cooking and cooking... well yeah I can also teach you about bugs - insects, that is the good and the bad, what agricultural pest management is about, what the true story behind residues and organics is...
