Finish writing the three ebooks to accompany my three iPhone apps.
I believe in enjoying life to the full, but am also willing to make sacrifices to achieve what I want. I love travelling, but also staying put and really getting to know a place.
I am easy going in general, but at the same time I can stick up for myself and stand my ground when necessary.
Life is for living. Specialisation is for insects. Jeder ist seines glueckes Schmied.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I have hosted many CSers in Barcelona, been a guest myself in Madrid, Paris, Vilnius, and Lima. I've attended many BCN CS gatherings and I often offered guest list slots to CSers for gigs that I was promoting. I don't do tour guide stuff, so please don't ask.
I've been travelling on and off since 1985-86 when I was just 16. I've crashed on countless sofas/mattresses/camp beds/floors around the world and had countless people crash on mine.
Music, travel, history, politics, fitness, people with gumption and ambition who make things happen.

Teach, Learn, Share
I can show you a whole bunch of tricks and tips about how to speed up language learning. And you can use many of the same tricks to learn anything.
What I Can Share with Hosts
Without wishing to sound arrogant, the pleasure of my company and conversation. I hope that's sufficient, isn't that what this is all about?
