Please send me proper requests, not messages about hosting.
I've hosted more people than I have references. Some people just don't post anything after stay. Not cool, but let it be.
I don't smoke.
I do snowboarding since 2002.
I stopped drinking vodka in November 2003 and still don't consume it neither pure nor in cocktails.
I used to travel a lot, it will take loads of time to write detailed information about all the trips, so I better will not do it. I used to make lots of weekend trips and week-long journeys, few years ago I switched to longer trips, which take few months.
I've done two hitch-hiking trips round Europe in 2007 and 2008.
In summer 2011 I've made the best trip of my whole life (as for now) around US and Mexico for 3,5 months. Couchsurfing, hitch-hiking, camping and so on, it was awesome! In summer 2014 I've made another great trip around US for 2,5 months. It was way different from the previous but I had lots of fun as well.
I was working hard as economist for TV companies since January 2008, but in February 2011 I quitted and traveled for a while. Then I worked as a charity manager for a major tea company for several months and an event manager in a small agency for more then a year. Then I switched to freelance event management. MMA in Germany and America, projects for Mercedes-Benz and FIFA, etc. Right now I work in a federal bank as a full-time event manager. I like to earn money and then spend them on travelling. Experience is priceless, everything else comes and goes.
I used to collect lots of different stuff: magnets (got 2 fridges at my hometown completely covered with them), music vinyls, beer memorabilia (glasses, coasters, caps, labels), coins, books and some other stuff.
Now I just stick to vinyls.
Many years ago I used to find hosts with the help of my friends, I've stayed in a lot of hostels, then I decided to try something different and I really love it. CS rules. Undoubtedly.
p.s. and yeah, like everybody else here, "laid back, easy going". B)
home is where you place your backpack tonight
I will be especially happy to host people from subcultures I'm into: punks, skins, football fans, snowboarders, bikers, rock musicians.
People who may not feel good at my place: lovers of Asia, yoga, modern art and other "enlightened" people. I'm more into down to earth people.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I've registered a long time ago but didn't really use CS a lot, it was not that many people and so on. Now I use it more as CS grew into something really interesting.
I used to surf a lot. Sometimes I let my friends in for a few nights. Now I want to pay back the debt to community and help people with emergency requests. I feel that I must.
Really really positive, otherwise I won't be here.
Great thanks to all the hosts, who already hosted me and who will host me one day!
