mission impossible :D
I love cats but sometimes I react on furry animals so it's better for me to have the sleeping space with a little distance from them. I accept hosts with references who are not following nudist or naturist life style. It doesn't matter if you have ten or a thousand references as I would also like to contribute the recently joined members to have more references. I happily respond to the friend requests of the ones I have met in person.
Fun fact: I have never had any piercings or tattoos.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
all the amazing people I have met
Teach, Learn, Share
i think i'm not the teacher type, but certainly we can learn something from everyone :)
i have a minimalistic lifestyle; i collect experiences not material. i try to follow a sustainable way of living in everyday life for example by flying less and travel overland instead of flying when available, recycling and reusing things when applicable. i never throw food away, that is what i learned at home as a child.
the great idea of couchsurfing is making new friends all over the world with like-minded people. if you have other motives besides cultural exchange please do not send me any request nor accept my couch request.
What I Can Share with Hosts
travel experiences and company for activities. don't hesitate to ask if you need a strong person to carry something or a tall person to reach something high because for me it's not a big deal to offer my helping hand :)
