About Me

To learn all about the world, the people, the nature and its history.

Currently on my mind is to try arranging trekkings in less explored countries.


I think I'm just a soul whose intentions are good. When I travel I try to combine nature with culture, activities with relaxing and allow myself a beer or two from time to time.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I like it

Music, Movies, and Books

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Perhaps the best and exhausting trek ever in Uganda searching for wild mountaingorilla's to be rewarded to find a full group including a giant silverback. WOW!

Teach, Learn, Share

Sharing is the basic element to make the world a better place full of love, peace and happiness
