Join Couchsurfing to see Thomas’s full profile.
I am an optimistic, humorous and open-minded person, which like to be with people and enjoy life. But as well I like to discuss the world and universe...
Please don't request if you come late and leave early in the morning. Take a hotel.
"Life is short, break the rules, forgive quickly, kiss slowly, love truly, laugh uncontrollably, and never regret anything that made you smile. Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
― Mark Twain
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Its the best way to get to know a country and culture.
I like to get to know new people not just on a superficial sphere - spending a day or two together give the chance of a deep conversation and perhaps a long preserving relation and friendship.
I love nature (picking mushrooms in the woods) and adventure (Rafting, Paragliding, Sky Diving...). As well I bycle, swim and meeting up friends. I am a great cook!
In Vacations I do Diving and Kitesurfing.
Love doing Yoga. I do daily a form of meditation "autogenious training"
- kite surfing
- scuba diving
Music, Movies, and Books
Adele, Amy Winehouse, Alphablondy, Pearl Jam, Johny Cash, AC/DC, Celia Cruz, Manu Chao to quote some.
I love to dance to Electronic/House Music, but as well I know to dance Salsa and Merengue.
Erich Fromm - The Art of Loving
Movie you should watch: The Yes man with Jim Carrey, funny but true.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Visiting with ethnologist a Native Colombian Tribe in the Amazonas - showing eachother dances around a fire in the hut - having porrigde with giant ants.
Climbing up a Volcano in Equador and see the boiling lava!
Going through a cave by boat with millions over millions of glowworms at Waitomi Cave in New Zealand.
Diving a Cave in Yucatan, Mexico and seeing thousands of stalactites and a fireplace which been used 10.000 years before.
Paraglide from a 1000 m high mountain into a deep vally in Venezuela.
Jump in Russia into a waterhole in a frozen lake after Sauna. It felt like born freshly.
Visiting the spirituell Capital of India, Varanasi, smell the burning human flesh and donate money for the burning wood to old people coming from all India waiting to die. This place felt special like Jerusalem - just got these feelings two times in my life.
Teach, Learn, Share
Having travelled in hole Europe and a lot of others (so far 73 countries ) make myself a good travel advisor.
Please ask me if you plan a trip to Germany - I have seen all bigger cities and landscapes and can advise a route.
As well I am very interested in history and politics - so I can explain you the history and present of Germany and Mainz, the oldest town (in dispute ;) in Germany.
I have an Outdoor-Sauna - always happy if somebody likes to share in Winter - mention it for a better acceptance of your request if you are into it.
We can meditate together and give you an introduction.
What I Can Share with Hosts
I can cook a delicious German Meal.
As well I like to give massage (and of course receive) and collected a wide array of techniques travelling.
If you are planning your Germany trip check out the beautiful UNESCO World Heritage landscape Upper Middlerhinevalley with 34 castles which is just 30 km from Mainz. Don't miss it!
As well don't miss nearby Wiesbaden. A gem, maybe one of the most beautiful cities in the world! Representing Germanys leading economic role end of 19th and beginning of 20th century with neoclassical and art nouveau architecture. And one of the few bigger cities which were not heavily destroyed in 2. World War.
