About Me


Having fun, exploring the world, meeting cool people


Hi, I'm Taco. I'm a couchsurf virgin, having surfed once and hosted once.

So almost like a virgin. Kinda like madonna.

Both experiences were really good. I won't be travelling for a while now, but it still allows me the fun of hosting.

I enjoy open communication, adventure and diversity of culture. Anything that's done and said from the essence of a good heart is fun and games.

I can't really say what I'm like as a host, I'm simply too inexperienced. But I love food and sometimes to cook, so if you're a food lover, we're already friends.


Carpe diem, live and let live and all that jazz

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I host. Simple and sweet.


I loved staying at a house of some of the most social girls I've ever met in Berlin recently. Cooking, playing guitar, wacky jokes and good stories. Just easy-going friendlyness.

I really love cooking for guests or hosts, so if you're into indonesian food, let me know, I'll bring some herbs.

I always love to hear about people's passions, why they're here, what they love, so if that's something you'd like to share, I love to hear about it.

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies that were good: You me and everybody we know, before sunrise, before sunset, shortbus and of course every movie that I played in or worked for ;)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Living in Brazil for three months and going there without having enough money initially to make the trip back.

Being there, the local language and culture was mesmerizing and the rhythm of life had an african drumbeat that was intoxicating.

Finding entrepeneurial work for hostels, training capoeira, hearing the mango's fall from the trees in the morning, carnaval, rain season, too many experiences to try and condense into a few words here.

Then right after from this exuberent life going to malaysia and seeing the quiet and reserved life, quite a cultureshock ;)

Teach, Learn, Share

Do you speak german, japanese or portuguese? I would love to practice language a little.

I am getting better at massage. Have some tips? I'd love to learn more.

My house is a bit of a dojo, so if you want to learn some capoeira or stage combat and I have time, I might teach you ;)
