Live and let live

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Just back from the CS Snowfest in Austria. A week of craziness and skiing.A very mixed group from all over Europe and a good experience-
Hope to do more trips with the CS group


Up till now, it's been a very good experience. I've had nothing but very nice people to host.


Mostly sports. Often at the gym. Tennis, Skiing mostly.
I'm going to Egypt in may to try kite surfing for the first time. It looks like fun but I#m not sure how difficult it is.
Update: Kite Surfing is difficult but fun. Have booked again to go in June and again to Egypt.
Am going to Egypt in April 2016 to kite surf again.
Just back from kiting in Kenya Jan 2017
Probably go to Egypt again in April

Also going to for the third time
