Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Dec 08> Had my first great experience in Germany where I met the nicest people :)
Nov 09> surfed for a night in Mallorca
Nov 09> met a great french dude in Madrid through CS
Dec 09> met with fellow lonely CS travelers in Paris!
Since then I hosted a couple of times and met and surfed with other CS's in Portugal, Japan, Russia and China
One of my biggest hobbies is playing the (classical) guitar. When possible I take it with me everywhere I go. Recently I also began playing the piano.
I enjoy traveling, photography I like learning languages and I would like to meet people from different cultures. Recently I took up scuba-diving :)
Watching movies, reading books and listening to music. I also enjoy fencing and tennis. And sometimes spend too much time on the computer or playing videogames (latest: bioshock)
Music, Movies, and Books
I am an avid reader. I think I enjoy any (good) book regardless of its genre but mostly I read Sci-Fi, Fantasy and lately historical fiction. When possible I like to read books in their original language. I also enjoy good comic books.
Music is something I cannot live without. Whether I am in a train, bus or aeroplane, if I am alone you will find me with a book and a pair of headphones. Sounds strange but music really adds to the books reading experience. I mostly listen to classical, punk, happy ska, rock.. (the used, less than jake, millencolin, nirvana, pearl jam, the back horn, Tchaikovski, Chopin...)
I like movies that make me think (Cube), that surprise me (Memento, Usual Suspects, Requiem for a Dream, Lola Rennt), that make me sad (Dancing in the dark, Dogville), that make me happy (Big Fish), and just plain strange (David Lynch). A also enjoy good action flicks once in a while (Sin City,300, LOTR).
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Skydiving in Gran Canaria. 10 push-ups in a row.
Teach, Learn, Share
