About Me


Bitte Keine Deutschen Couchsurfer!


Easy going, probably a little shy/whacky personality, maybe a little eccentric,

Am a Reformed
"World of Warcraft" addict (Currently 3 years clean), let's hope I don't have a relapse! :) FOR THE HORDE!


Be Good!, simple enough?

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Last Minute Couch Request! Yes, 60% of my Guests are Last Minute!

Hosting, showing people around! (normally in the weekends if the weather is fine!)

If you stay on a Wednesday night we can go to CS drinks
which give's me an excuse to go :)


Ok I am really lazy with my profile since getting back from Europe, I normally tend to Host 10-15 people per month

Ok working on this bit...
