About Me


“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”


Mountains are not stadiums where I satisfy my ambition to achieve, they are the cathedrals where I practice my religion." €Anatoli Boukreev

If you have a dream to make a success of your life,then go for it,make your dream come true.No one said life would be easy,but they said it's worth trying

I'm better at selling than I am at speling!

i'm just your average smart, funny, good looking and modest type of guy who likes long walks on the beach, dolphins and puppies


My main philosophy is very simple:
- Love all people and things around...
- Never Fear (Never be angry about anything, never think bad about something)
- Never expect anything...
- Be always thoughtful...
- If you want to change the world, change yourself
- Do it or not
- Nothing is impossible
- Why not
- The one you see
- The one other sees
- The real one, nearly nobody wants to see

Not all who wander get lost. Some discover themselves.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Hosting, surfing, activities... there’s a lot to do here. What’s your favorite way to get involved?The mission statement is the best read it.... CouchSurfing International, we envision a world where everyone can explore and create meaningful connections with the people and places they encounter. Building meaningful connections across cultures enables us to respond to diversity with curiosity, appreciation and respect. The appreciation of diversity spreads tolerance and creates a global community.I like meeting and sharing with people and the cs peeps are the best, i travel allot but when i have a couch it must be surfed!Keep it real and dont be a free loder ....
