About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Become inmortal and acquire the ability to fly

ABOUT ME

I am friendly, like to help people and meet new people and hang out with them. I love to do and learn new stuff and completely crush it. I also like trying exciting things which make me cross my safety boundaries.

PD: I just changed it, didn't like the description I wrote of myself 3 years ago! O_o

PHILOSOPHY

Push forward

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I'm just trying to see how it works at the moment, and how can I use it.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

A very nice weekend at Cologne, and four exciting days at Berlin that led me unequivocally to think that CS is a GREAT thing.
EDIT: Add CS in Aachen, Münster and a second time in Köln.

Interests

Learning new or interesting things, reading, drawing, music, knowing people, travelling of course :)
Just don't stand still doing no good.

Music, Movies & Books

Movies: Lawrence of Arabia, Frank Capra films, Schindler's list, Into the Labyrinth (yes, the one of David Bowie and Jennifer Connelly), The Matrix, Jurassic Park, Miyazaki films, Clint Eastwood films, Indiana Jones, Back to the Future (and all that stuff), and so on and on and on.
Music: Heavy Metal (Helloween, Blind Guardian, Gamma Ray, Judas Priest...), Hard Rock (Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin...), Psychedelic Rock (Bowie during Ziggy era, Blue Öyster Cult...) and Classical Music (Romantic, Classical, Baroque and even previous kinds. Baroque is my favourite, more precisely Purcell, Haendel and Bach). Out of that, music doesn't disturb me and I still can enjoy it.
Books: The Lord of the Rings and everything written by good ol' Tolkien, but Middle-Earth stuff over all. Terramar pentalogy from Ursula K Leguin. Asimov freakin novels. A Song of Ice and Fire, the most addicting macro-never-ending-novel ever written. And some books I read quite long ago: 1984, the Game of Ender... Dune deserves to be remembered too, the Arthurian novels of Marion Zimmer Bradley, the Never Ending Story. The Time Machine is very remarkable also.
Comic/manga/anime: One Piece. Record of the Lodoss War. Dragon Ball. You see, fighting stuff :) From Hell, The Sandman.
Videogames (which I don't play anymore): Zelda, Panzer Dragoon, Sonic
Videogames (which I currently play) : Starcraft (and hopefully Starcraft II)

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Launching my first comic book, travelling abroad on my own the first time, stargazing.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach almost any science related subject in a basic level XD I can also teach people the basics of drawing and helping'em to improve. And of course languages.
I like learning anything that requires some ability or practise. I'd like to learn: Japanese, French, Italian, Russian, Chinese, Arabian, Finnish, cooking, martial arts, drawing, playing guitar, learning history (if you can explain me any part of the history I'll be a truly happy man), mythology, calligraphy... Everything is fine!

Countries I've Visited

France, Italy, Portugal, United Kingdom

Countries I've Lived In

Germany, Spain
