To conquer the world by travelling
I am currently a student at the university of Stellenbosch. I study electrical and electronic engineering with computer science.
I believe our time on earth is limited and we should have as much fun and experiences as we can. I am very open minded to different cultures and views on life and ways of living. I believe life should be as simple as possible. We should work to live, not live to work.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
At the moment I am but a poor student. I have no house yet so I can't offer a couch, but I plan to travel a lot while being a student. Once I get a job and house I will have a couch available to all. My parents did say they might have a place available though.
I am new to the site, no experiences yet.
Music, movies, travelling, hiking, swimming, drinking, electronics, puzzles, dancing, eating and experiencing new cultures. Any good party.
- computer science
Music, Movies, and Books
Books - Fantasy is my favourite. Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, The Sword of truth series by Terry Goodkind, books by Raymond E. Feist.
Movies - V for Vendetta, Amelie, Inception, any animation, Shutter Island, Monty Python!
Music- besides the mainstream.. Regina Spektor, Silversun Pickups, The Klaxons, Imogen Heap and lots more.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I experienced all of Europe on a Contiki tour this year. Many great experiences there.
Teach, Learn, Share
I am studying engineering so I know a lot about electronics. I also know a lot about computer programming. I used to be a swimmer, so I could teach people to do that properly haha. I could probable teach you about South African foods and culture too.
