About Me

My references are probably accurate.

Please be yourself and don't force anything. I am accepting and don't judge. I'm not strict at all.

I'm always interested in new and novel things: experiences, ideas, places, items, food, words people, colors, feelings, and more. In that order ;-)

No stagnation, creative innovation!

I'm a hands-off, freedom-giving host. It is your vacation. I will accommodate you as best as I can. Maybe we will be able to spend time together outside my apartment, but due to life and work, maybe not.

No expectations, no disappointments.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

The people I've met have been very kind and open (and rarely arrogant or pretentious). I've met some cool people who I wouldn't have otherwise, and it's a fun way to travel.
