About Me

I'm currently preparing my journey to Peru! And I'm already in love with the thought of it!

What Diana, one of the most lovely Couchsurfers in the world, wrote about me:
I'm not even sure how to write a reference for Robert since this beautiful person is beyond words :)
I spontaneously decided to join my friend Laura at Appelpop Festival and requested a couch for the weekend, but got SO much more than that. In the 4 days I spent with him he has filled my life with joy, laughter, adventure and emotion and made it almost impossible to want to leave. Always with a smile on his face, he is incredibly warm and kind, funny and playful, smart and talented. He's the one you change your plans for, just to be able to enjoy more time with him. And when you do leave, you won't only have the best memories. but also a very dear friend :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To meet wonderful people and also be able to learn more about countries by connecting with the locals ;)

Music, Movies, and Books

Everything from Tolkien's mind!
The Lord Of The Rings, The Silmarillion, The Hobbit. The books are extraordinary beautiful and they really touch my heart. The movies give us an wonderful vision of how his epic books look like. Tolkien is a man of my heart.

I listen to almost everything. From celtic Enya till Rammstein. I prefer music with interesting content.

Great names

Asaf Avidan
Ben Howard
Owl City
And of course the music from LOTR by Howard Shore

Definitily the best 👌🏻

The Lord Of The Rings
Into The Wild
Hector And The Search For Happiness
Good will hunting
V For Vendetta
La Vita e Bella
Where The Wild Things Are
Tron Legacy

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

One of my most incredible experiences while travelling.
I was snorkling in the green and blue like ocean in Mexico. Yea, green! It was strange and maybe was because the ocean floor was covered in dark green seaweed. For a time it looked really empty, till I saw them. In the distance, huge seaturtles were grazing on the green underwater fields.

"There is some good in this world, and it's worth fighting for."
- J.R.R. Tolkien

'I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness, nor the arrow for its swiftness, nor the warrior for his glory. I love only that which they defend.' - J.R.R. Tolkien

From the great books of Terry Goodkind, The Wizard's First Rule: people will believe anything either because they want it to be true, or are afraid it might be true.
