Why I'm on Couchsurfing

I traveled using couchsurfing to Egypt, Morocco,United States and now surfing South America. I'm always eager to show people around and host whenever I can. A video about my couchsurfing experience in USA http://vimeo.com/68866426

Interests

I'm passionate about languages and I always feel addicted to learning new ones. I like a language in itself, its structure and history. But what I love the most is what it brings: access to culture and communication with people. I'm a big film buff and might soon be turning into a book worm (or bibliophile if you pardon my Greek). I'm also a "people junkie". I think I'm addicted to meeting new people. Which makes couchsurfing a perfect place:)

I love images both moving and still. I'm into film photography because it's a medium to capture moments that are special to me and it helps to transform reality by embellishing it. My pictures: http://www.flickr.com/photos/andersun/
