About Me


find my place in life


;) World Peace in one piece :D

Main goal -> To make people smile ;)

if the price for a nice smile on your face is looking 'stoopid', it's the price i'm gonna pay :)

You might hear "Ooh, i'm so proud right now" in rather childish manner or that's gonna be written all over my face.

I'm work-addict. Work-a-Holic ;)

Despite the laziness within I sometimes do organize some gatherings with a bit alternative approach ;)

Sometimes I might seem way down to earth and pretty narrow minded too. that's mostly because I like to know with what i'm dealing with, what can/should i expect from others :) to some it might look like i'm too bossy or overly controlling :)

== Living in Latvia doesn't make you a Latvian any more than sitting in a tree does. ==

We all are monkeys sitting in the tree :D We all do tempt the rest of the world ---->
"Come - Come to the dark side - we have cookies" ;) NB! we knowz that cookiez are badz for u :)

- Oscar Wilde once said - "Experience is simply the name we give our mistakes."-
Lets do something without worrying about "is this the right thing to do" or "Will it really be ok for me to do so".

Mistakes is there only to teach us. :) It might be fun doing something new and stupid ;) Try it! ;)
You don't want to sit in the armchair at age 80 thinking "I should have done that... "

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Hosted several times :) The first time it WAS :D i barely had the time to talk to my guests :) when they were here i was worried sick about all the possible things they might need or want :D

Now it's more like - ah feel at home - if you need something, i will be in my room :D

i am a workaholic after all so I rarely have time just to hang out :)


So far so good :)

had one really bad case when guests were tossed at me and the level of rudeness was on rather epic level... too bad I was not quite good at tossing out guys with no passports... clear statement - Do not go into flat mates room was totally ignored - they even installed something there. without asking or notifying. :/ I am still disappointed - upon that there was more then a year when I didn't feel like hosting anyone afterwards.



Music, Movies, and Books

Mostly: fantasy and martial art based

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

So far the greatest place I've seen is colorful canyon in Egypt Sinai.

the view when you've climbed out of it and take a look at it from the top...


ah ok - Norway - Eidfjord - HARD ANGER FESTIVAL area - impressive field between 5 peaks. you don't even see the route to get out there - and taking pictures... impossible without wide lenses :D that awesome was that place :D the mountains just didn't fit in :D
