About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Finishing my studies! And living the day to its fullest.

ABOUT ME

What I'm telling you here is what I am thinking I am - could still be very different from what other's do think about me ;-)
Yeah, I think I'm pretty open-minded, I just let things happen and try to be happy or content in each and every situation. Being silly at times and laughing a fair amount of time 'bout myself and others (without offense!!) I'm just trying to make the most of my existence on this beautiful planet. Wow I got the impression I'm really getting esoteric now.. who knows... There are just so many things in life you can experience... and I am willing to do exactly that in my life :-)

PHILOSOPHY

I am living my life to discover my philosophy ;) Moreover I think that there will never be MY ONE philosophy because everything keeps changing and changing and changing... but it may be that later when I have a long grey beard.. wait, there's something wrong ;)...
Well, you know what I mean?! Sure... I'm really just here to meet people, have good chats and discussions and see places that will be more memorable than some of the pictures I find myself taking at places that are usually called tourist attractions.
--------
It always seems impossible until it's done!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Travelled one week through Paris - met only nice people, am quite sure I'll never forget this experience. Couchsurfed in Brisbane, had the best introduction to a city I lived in afterwards for a couple of months! Had a good time spending 2 nights in a Fijian Village at Save's place. Shared a couch at Manly Beach within a house of some real (couch+)surfers ;-). Some more couchsurfing done in France... you know the story! So many great ppl out there - more to meet!

Music, Movies, and Books

Walk the Line, Ray, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Disney, Pixar and animation movies, Slumdog Millionaire
Music
Curse, Samy Deluxe, Clueso, Joy Denalane, Max Herre, Dendemann, Jan Delay, Bajofondo, ... I'm pretty open for fresh music and hints from you concerning local musicians :-)
Books
Stephen King's books, Harry Potter series, everything that comes to my hands and sounds interesting... lately I discovered Robin Sharma's works and I'm getting more on lifestyle design - that's one thing I'd love to discuss if you're doing work location-independent!!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Many little miracles every day :-)
apart from that: Working in a banana field in Tully, Queensland/Australia. Jumping out of a plane in Taupo, New Zealand. Sleeping in a real Fijian house in Nadi (thanks to couchsurfing).

Teach, Learn, Share

I could teach basics in playing the guitar or the piano or we could have a little jam session together. I love to share one and more cups of delicious coffee from the fair trade project I am participating in.
I am keen on learning new languages, idioms, slang, whatever... getting to know other cultures and ways of life..ah maybe this would also have been an interest? Whatever, just getting everything mixed up ;-)

Countries I’ve Visited

Denmark, Fiji, France, Hungary, Malta, Netherlands, New Zealand, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Thailand, United Kingdom, United States

Countries I’ve Lived In

Australia, France, Germany, South Africa
