About Me

helloo fellow travellers and at-home-stayers.

my name is rené, i am from austria, and after having travelled for about a year, i am currently living in my grandparents' house in the Austrian countryside. Currently I cannot host anyone, unfortunately. However, I can give tips and recommendations about Vienna.

i am kinda earnest and quiet, i only talk much when i feel really comfortable. however, i am very nice.

currently i am provided a room to sleep in by my wwoofing host, so i can't host other people. i guess that makes me more of a taker than a giver at the moment. oh well

i'd like to meet people and see music (yes, see music!) in the big city.

og jeg lærner norsk, men ikke veldig hurtig.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

because i didnt unregister after cs became big and famous -_-
because i still like the idea.


making music on the guitar and on the computer, photographing (not the technic-freak-kind, but also not the artist. something inbetween, i think. yes, definitely something inbetween.), bad-literature-reading (if ever i read), theoreticising (this i am really good at), theoreticising-upgiving-trying (because it complicates life).
oh, and i have recently discovered that i love watching movies, only i never do because (which i've also just found out) i hate watching movies alone.

Music, Movies, and Books

i have a love-hate-relationship with music. maybe with media in general. oh well

music is kinda important to me though, i have no preferred genre. it should be real tho (as opposed to fake), and a little complex. but also melodical.
aarh its so hard to describe musical taste.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

i haven't done any amazing things so far.
but i've made some astonishing realizations!

Teach, Learn, Share

erm. i play the classical guitar (that's what i was taught, anyway), i try to make electronic music on my computer, i studied linguistics (conversational analysis), i am interested in photography.
knowledge of all of which i would be happy to share with you to the extent that i can. and I can maybe tell you a little something about syrian, yemeni and saudi arabian, and maybe also Lower Austrian culture (but who wants to learn about that. amiright).

What I Can Share with Hosts

everything they'd want or dare me to share. empathy, judgmentlessness* and interest, mostly.

*) this word doesnt exist, but you know what i mean, right

Countries I’ve Visited

France, Hungary, Netherlands, Saudi Arabia, Switzerland, Tunisia, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, United States, Yemen

Countries I’ve Lived In

Austria, Germany, Italy
