About Me


Follow my dreams.


It's never easy to tell about yourself, even tho you are supposed to be the one who knows it best.
Anyways, I'm from a very small village, which is located somwhere in the middle of Latvia. As I live in countryside, I have grown up with woods, lakes and green fields around me. I love nature, but at the same time it makes me look for experience of big city and millions of people.
I love to go out, meet lots of new and diffrent people and learn from every and each of them.


Follow your dreams, and don't let anyone to make you give up on them.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've met some travelers, showed them around, as I'm not able to host at the moment.

I have been hosted by many amazing people all around Europe and Asia, it has been wonderful experiance. I am looking forward to host one day, when I will take a break from traveling myself.


People, society, world religions. Why religions? Well, I'm not religious person myself, but I find it very interesting, how people believe in what they believe. This is one of the topics I like to discuss about.

Volunteering. I've been doing different kinds of volunteer work, related to youth.
At the moment I am volunteering in Varanasi, India. I am working as teacher and supervisor at institute, that is training future primary school teachers.

Music, Movies, and Books

Odd, but I'm not too much of a movie or book kind of person. As I major in Politics and History, I have to read quite a lot in school, so I better spend my free time different.

Music? Pretty much everything. I like Latvian music, but in general I enjoy rock/indie/experimental music. I enjoy almost everything which is in some way weird.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I have climbed a tree in order to save myself from angry rhino we met on our path in Chitwan national park, Nepal.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you some energizers! If you don't know what is an energizer, soon you'll find out!

Oh, and also I can teach you a my mother language, with only less than 2 million native speakers - Latvian.
