About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Never stop meeting new people! You can learn so much!

ABOUT ME

international- and cultural-minded, expressive, adventurous

PHILOSOPHY

Difficult question. Didn't find an answer yet, I suppose. Try to work on it. I still have to improve myself and my lifestyle to live a more meaningful life.

Please read my profile and answer my question. I will not answer to any couchrequest if it doesn't include an answer to my question.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I like meeting new people, helping travelers and hosting people. It's very interesting to meet people from all over the world, exchange culture and experiences. I've been couchsurfing in Madrid / Argentina and Chile / Russia and it was fantastic!
I'm looking for Spanishspeaking and Russianspeaking people to practice. I would like to help people who are new in Brussels and want to start a new life in Brussels. I prefer single travelers who stay for more than one day, but that doesn't mean that I don't accept more people and even one night is possible. If you write me a couchrequest, it means that you want to exchange something, learn something, have some kind of relationship with me and you don't want only a free place to sleep.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I'm hosting a lot of people and I really love it! I've been couchsurfing in Kyrgyzstan in Bishkek, which was very nice and I join the couchsurfingmeetings in Brussels, which are also very nice! I had a very nice guide in Finnish Lapland, who showed me around during a weekend. Couchsurfing in Madrid / Argentina / Chile / Russia.

Teach, Learn, Share

I like learning about other cultures. Couchsurfing is not just about a place to sleep. It's about exchange. I would like to learn a lot from other couchsurfers! What is couchsurfing for you? What does it mean to you? What do you want to share and learn?
