About Me


To be a vital ingredient of cultural cocktails!


There comes a time in life when you ask yourself - Why grow up? Why be serious? Is is necessary to get stuck in a daily rut with the same monotonous routine? So I asked myself ... hey ... what is the most 'off beat' thing I can do in my life? The answer was to jazz of to Ukraine and try to live there for a while. Thanks to CS and some wonderful friends I made there, it was awesome.

Where to next ... I do not know but for all you die-hard travel crazy CSers come one and all to INDIA. A kalidescope of ancient history, cultures, religions, languages, natural beauty and it is well worthwhile for every couchsurfer to have India in their travel wish list.
