Well for starters I come from the land where people train dragons for a living, have polar bears as pets, sleep in igloos and where our pride and glory lies in grunting competitions. I'm part viking and part chocolate. My mother granted me the wonderful Belgian genes which has lead to my refined taste for anything chocolate as well as my friendly banter, silly humor and love for beer and wine. On the other hand, my father has gifted me the great genes of the North, making me a bit of an adventurer lover, a sometimes quiet and reserved person and a great tolerance for excessive consumption of alcohol, even if it is an activity I try to avoid.
In nature I am quite humorous, very positive and eager to help, I'm one of those people that would rather believe in the good of the people and I do believe Couchsurfing is an excellent enabler for my beliefs. I can be random at time and a little bit impulsive as well, given the chance I would love to cook as well and I have received excellent reviews on my dish washing abilities.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I'm hoping to enlightening my fellow surfer with my incredibly wise knowledge, or more realistically, by sharing a few good laughs, caring to hear about the stories they have as well as an eagerness to discuss whatever topic we both seem interested in.
There are many interests in life. Some more plain than others, like sitting at a bench and feeding birds (although I believe that's an interest I'll wait until I'm 70 to start practicing). But really, I like filming although I enjoy watching movies a lot more, I love writing and biking. Walking is one of my favorite activities, especially if it's somewhere serene. I'm actually one of those weirdos that love commuting places, that moment of peace with your music or podcasts, a pure bliss in the monotone world.
Music, Movies, and Books
I've seen a LOT of movies, I really have and this list is not complete, never will be, sadly. But here are a few of the many movies I've enjoyed watching
- The Lord of The Rings trilogy(yes, I'm a geek, and I've even seen the director's cut versions, so that's like 12 hours total)
- American Beauty
- Fight Club
- Shawshank Redemption ("Hope is a good thing")
- The Illusionist
- American X History
- The Man From Nowhere
- The Brotherhood of War
- Saving Private Ryan
- Le Fabuleux Destin D'Amelia Poulain
- Starry Starry Night
- A Bittersweet Life
- Myazaki and all the Studio Ghibli movies
- Infernal Affairs
- Into the Wild
- Pan's Labyrinth
- Hunt For The Wilderpeople
Books is way simpler, I read a lot, but my all time favorite book will forever be White Fang as well as Jack London's short story "To Build a Fire"
Music depends of the mood really, but there are some genre I have a hard time for, like hard rock, and death, etc...
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
One of the most amazing thing I've seen was on my way to a skying resort in Sweden called Are. At the time I was 8-9 years old and I was sitting at the back of the car next to the window. Given it was winter, at 6pm it was pitch-dark outside. I had groggily woken up from sleeping in the car. My limbs still feeling numb and my neck sore from the uncomfortable position. More importantly my brain still tired and my eyes unfocused. I looked out the window and up into the starry night when I saw this greenish snake in the sky, dancing. I rested my sleepy head against the window and stared at it for what seemed like hours. What I didn't know at the time was that I was seeing an aurora boraelis. Anyways, seeing the Northern Lights for my first time is something I will never forget.
Teach, Learn, Share
I could teach how to fix things, especially bikes. I'm kind of a handy man in the sense that I tend to have a knack for solutions to broken things (notice: this does not apply to humans as well).
What I Can Share with Hosts
Food, laughter, movie suggestions and friendly company.
