COUCHSURFING - COUCH - HAMELN - ME
THE GOOD DAYS OF COUCHSURFING ARE GONE AND I HAVE LOTS OF GOOD MEMORIES ABOUT COUCHSURFERS AND EVENTS, BUT CS-LEADERS DON´T UNDERSTAND THAT QUANTITY ISN´T QUALITY
In case they (the LT leadership-team) change something on the website, they change it ALWAYS in a bad way!
Just a few examples from the past (many people don´t know it)
-they removed the nice chat-rooms
-they deleted the big city-groups
-the deleted the ambassador structure (global-ambs, country-ambs)
-they transferred CS in a C$ because they were not able to keep the 501(c)3-status
-they got a lot of money and they wasted it with the big help of CEO TONY ESPINOZA
-AND NOW THEY TRANSFERRED THE CS-SITE INTO SUCH AN AWFUL WEBSITE AND LOTS OF DATAS AND WORK WITH HTML-CODES BY THE USERS WERE DELETED FOREVER
Check here to find out who earned money with the CS-website:
Type in ´Couchsurfing´ for ´Organization Name´ and the ´Fiscal Year´ you´re interested in (only 2006,2007 and 2008 is working).
GENERAL AND IMPORTANT (!) COUCH-INFOS:
-NO COUCH FOR COUCHSUFER WITH EMPTY PROFILES AND WITHOUT COUCHREQUEST. IF THERE WILL BE ANY TIMECHANGES KEEP ME INFORMED AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, BECAUSE MY JOB IS MY TIMETABLE AND NO CHANGES POSSIBLE!
-ASK FOR A COUCH EARLY (2-3WEEKS) AND VERIFICATE SHORT BEFORE (2-3DAYS)
-SAFE WATER, ELECTRICITY AND HEATING BECAUSE IT´S EXPENSIVE AND I DON´T WANT TO WASTE IT.
-IF YOU EAT WITH ME FILL UP THE FRIDGE, TOO.
-BE SURE OF NOT BEING ALLERGIC! A HOUSE-CAT IS LIVING WITH ME INSIDE AND KEEP THE DOORS CLOSED !!!
-PLEASE DON´T BRING OR USE ANY ILLEGAL DRUGS IN MY HOUSE
-ESPECIALLY FOR AMERICANS: NO GUNS ON MY PROPERTY !!!
-HOUSE IS A NON SMOKING AREA AND DON`T THROW YOUR CIGARETTES IN THE ENVIRONMENT
-I CAN OFFER TOWELS AND BLANKETS.
-YOU CAN USE OUR LAN IF YOU HAVE A LAPTOP WITH YOU.
I want to be sure that you understand these points. So write in your couchrequest why you want to surf my couch.
Due to some experiences in the past I have to make these house- and couchrules.
VERY IMPORTANT !!!
Be aware if you are a feeloader or you let me feel you just use me and my hospitality I will kick you out of my house even at night!
MY CITY HAMELN
Hameln is a small city of 60.000 inhabitants and famous for the pied-piper.
My home is in a short walking-distance (10min) from the center of the town. Public transportation very near, but expensive and slow. If Couchsurfers are interested I can show and explain the town and surroundings.
The area is perfect to go aroung with bicycles and motorbikes!
The trus story of the Pied-Piper, song from Hannes Waader:
Visit me at BeWELCOME !!!!
Uuuuhps, everything about me?
There´s not enough space here, you have to find it out...
Short: Friendly man, age a little bit above the average couchsurfer but not too old to make new experiences, repairs his cars/motorbikes/bikes by himself, engineer for alternative heating systems/water supply, likes to cook if there´s time to do it
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
WHY I´M ON COUCHSURFING?
SINCE THE LAST BIG AND STUPID CHANGE OF THE WEBSITE I ASK MYSELF SEVERAL TIMES THE SAME QUESTION...
But as a former CS-amb I host, surf, organize and take part in many events.
I´m also a moderator of several CS-groups and organized three CS-motorcycle-invasions for CS-Motorcycle-Riders in Germany.
Meeting nice and interesting people for talking and having fun, riding my Ducatis, race- and mountainbike,
travelling with my bicycle in the mountains or at the coast in foreign countries with my tent, sleeping-bag etc
My work also, but sometimes not on Monday morning...
Music, Movies, and Books
-Endless Summer II (Surf-Movie from 1994)
-Tarantino Movies especially True Romance and Pulp Fiction
-Walk the Line (Johnny Cash)
-Streets of fire (Rock-Fantasie from 1984)
-All parts of Godfather (il padrino)
-Movies with Mel Gibson (Tequila Sunrise,Payback,Mad Max)
- Movies with Clint Eastwood (yes, the italo-western)
Rock, Blues and the sound of my Ducatis...
I like to read my own travel-diaries and remember all the things I´ve seen and the people I´ve met.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Cycling from San Fracisco to the Mexicam Border, the Route 66, around Korsika, Sicily AND around Italy from Finale Ligure to Cesenatico were my greatest trips.
Visiting the World Ducati Week 2007 with Lars (R.I.P.) and going around with my 996 was very interesting.
There are lots of amazing things to see every day, but when you are all day long in a hurry it´s not possible to realize....
Teach, Learn, Share
I can give you some advice how to safe water and energy by using modern heating system and water supplies.
I can help you to repair and how to maintenance your bicycle, motorbike, car etc
What I Can Share with Hosts
