About Me

Used to hitchhike like crazy, more than 200,000 km. Learned a lot and collected quite a few stories. More info:

See the references, meet me and form your own opinion.


The universe loves you. Love it back.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Most of my friends are in CouchSurfing although some of them think it's an evil corporation. For me it's just a website that has helped me to connect with wonderful people. I am thankful for that. But I don't use the site actively anymore.


Love, gift economy, hitchhiking, dumpster diving, friendship, societal development, leadership, technology, football, cooking, music, reading, writing, philosophy, future, today, badminton, humanity, garlic...
