About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I try to have as many FIRSTS as possible!!

ABOUT ME

I'm a very relaxed guy, who would never beg down another beer or a glass of wine but also never a request for help or an open ear!!

I enjoy going out, partying and being around people but I also love to be alone!

PHILOSOPHY

Don't take life too serious, because you won't escape from it alive!
And although Babylon makes the rules, enjoy yourself and treat everybody the way you would like to be treated!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I'm surfing and hosting also using the forums to get information and in contact with other people, participating in events ect. Shortly I also donated a bit to give back to the community and got verified.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I had my first experience in Toronto a while ago and since than I'm hooked. I surfed some more and hosted as much as possible. I fell in love with the whole idea of couch surfing when I heard about it. I only had great experencies with CS. It's the best and only way of traveling for me now. And hosting is so much fun as well. If you don't have time to travel on your own, you are able to meet cool people from all over the world right in your living room. I like to show people around and discover my own city with their eyes.
