Pourquoi je suis sur Couchsurfing


I try giving something back. Cooking, being extra social, buying you a drink when we go out, little things that will reflect the message that I really appreciate that you're hosting me.


I've been introduced to couchsurfing by a friend in 2009, and I was sceptical at first. "Do people trust each other based on a (presumably fake) internet profile?"

I have been couchsurfing for over 6 years now, and I've stayed at more than a hundred hosts and hosted plenty of people myself. It is very easy for me to tell other people that I find Couchsurfing one of the best concepts of the last decade.

The general trust level is just amazing, and because of that openness and the honesty in the things people put on their profile surfing has ALWAYS been an awesome experience. I haven't had a single negative encounter. In fact, I've met some amazing people who I would love to meet again someday, sincerely hoping that "it's a small world".

Randomness is a key element in my CS experiences. I often post messages on the CS groups of cities that I visit asking for travel partners. This way I'm creating a win/win: cheaper travels AND meeting new people. Worked out very well so far, like the time I spent 14 days in a small campervan in New Zealand with someone I met on the day of departure.

Centres d'intérêt

Currently I'm at the point of self-rediscovery. I'm throwing things up on the wall to see what sticks. So far I found out that I enjoy the things mentioned at the top, under "about me".

I'm interested in hearing success (and failure!) stories of people's online and offline businesses. It takes courage to start your own thing, so I'm curious what triggered you to do so, and how your journey went.

Morceaux de musique, films et livres

Music is a big passion in my life. I'm always collecting tracks, be it Funk, Techno, Hip Hop, Korean Soul, Japanese Surf Rock from the '60, anything groovy and danceable really. I travel with my complete (digital) music collection and am always ready to DJ. Just ask me!

I really enjoy self-help books, and I have a dozen of them on my to-read list. I'm really bad keeping track of what I read, but here are a few of my all-time favorites:

- "The 4-hour workweek", "The 4-hour body" and "The 4-hour chef" by Tim Ferriss. I recommend these to everyone!
- "The way of the superior man" - David Deida
- "Losing my virginity" - Richard Branson
- "The 8-minute mediation" - Victor Davich
- "Money - Master the game" - Tony Robbins

In the movie section I enjoy films that are well put together, usually psychological thrillers. A few of my favorites:

- Coffee and Cigarettes
- Batman: The Dark Knight
- Memories of a Murder (Korean)
- All Studio Ghibli movies (My Neighbour Totoro, Grave of the Fireflies, Howl's moving castle etc)
- Jagten (The Hunt)
- The Wire (I know, not a movie, but it sure feels like it is)
- Das leben des anderen
- Funny games
- Inception
- The Shawshank Redemption
- ALL Quentin Tarantino's
- Shindler's List
- One Flew over the Cuckoo's nest
- Casablanca
- Rear Window
- 12 Angry men
- A whole lotta Martin Scorsese
- District 9
- The usual suspects
