About Me


Live and Love Life


Going round with a smile on my face!I am a curious and energetic guy with a plan. Going places, meeting people, feel and absorb the environment. Right now I'm travelling every were to obtain my goal. In the mean while I write my stories and shoot heaps of images.I love music and partying but can also enjoy deep conversations and days of chill.This year has AUSTALIA as theme, starting a little life. Melbourne for the summer, then overland to the westcoast and stay there in the winter.


Life is too long or too short to live it badly!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've always been a great fan of hitch hiking and love picking up travellers. For me CS works the same. You share time and what you can share with other people in trade for... nothing. Just because you can. All good experiences are bonus. The last year I've been hosted by 2 great people in Asia (Myanmar and Laos). It really confirmed my value of meeting new people abroad. This year (2012) I'll travel and work in Australia. Hopefully I find a nice place to live and host. Otherwise I hope to be welcomed by Ozzies. For now I can only say I'll be a good guest and do whatever to make the surf a good experience.


Music, parties and festivals (long raves with happy house hippies, colourful cloths and shiny face paint are the best, especially when done in nature!).
Travelling, but hey who isn't on couchsurfing.
Photography, what you do whilst travelling.
Spirituality, or whatever it is we seek to live a happy and balanced life, with ourself and all around us.
Reading, because it is so chill and can be very inspiring.
