Join Couchsurfing to see Thomas’s full profile. It’s free!
I'm a 35-years-old student of life from Austria. I live near Graz, the capital of the green heart of Austria Styria...
Currently I am on my trip around the world, which is one of my life goals.
I think I'm a very easy going person, who like to meet other people from all over the world. To me it's very important to see many different countries and meet interesting people...
Since a few years I became really addicted to all the Chinese Martial Arts, health and philosophical staff. I am practicing Tai Chi Chuan, Qi Gong and Chinese Medicine - which is really GREAT. I can tell you a lot of these things and how they can help you in your daily life...
To have no plan what I'll do in future - that's my plan!!!
It used to work pretty good so far - just it's freaking out a little bit my family ;)
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I couchsurfed a lot in France and in the USA. Especially in the US I made, thanks to couchsurfing, life long friends. I also hosted in Graz a lot of lovely guests.
I'm really enjoying this project. It has given me back the faith in humanity...
