"FlyingDutchman" FlyingDutchmen's Profile

It's me!

Hello,

My name is Tobias. I started travelling after I graduated in 1992. At the moment I work in a casino for 4 days. (I am the 3rd of the left, looking a bit serious but most of the time I am not serious at all).

I am a well experienced backpacker, and you can ask me anything about any destination I've been. I have good knowledge of English, German, French, Spanish and I can even get by with some basic Arabic and Russian. At the moment I am also a CouchSurfing member.
