About Me

CURRENT MISSION

East... always into the east.

ABOUT ME

I'm a hitchhiker, most of the time a solo traveler. I like pushing my boundaries, experimenting and constantly forcing myself to leave my comfort zone. The concept of living off the grid fascinates me. I'm in the process of giving away my possessions, quitting my responsibilities and setting of for a long-term travel.

PHILOSOPHY

Accept whatever karma brings.

Also, I think that the most important thing in life is to remain faithful to what you believe in, and to try to make your dreams come true. I believe in destiny, whatever happens to you, happened to you because of a reason.

I grew up in a family where freedom was much more important than money or stability. My mother would hitchhike with 5-years-old me, or my father would quit his job without hesitation just to take us all for a long vacation in a converted van.

The good old punk rock DIY philosophy is also important to me. If I can, I'd rather make something with my hands than simply buy it. I like creating and recycling things.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I host, I surf. I've been on the road, so I understand how important it is sometimes to have someone out there, waiting for you.
Even if it says 'can't host' on my profile, ask me anyways if you're stranded. I'll try to arrange something.
I'm also a member of Global Free Loaders, Trust Roots and Hospitality Club.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I hosted travelers from all over the world, and it has always been an inspiring experience. I surfed couches in Europe, Asia, Africa and North America. And I loved it.
Whenerver I have a chance, I try to join CS meetings, meet some of you, see old friends.
The more I am into CouchSurfing, the more my experiences vary, but most of them are still very positive.

Interests

In life, I'm interested in living off-the-grid, self-sufficiency, survivalism.
I'm also very into creating: design, photography, DIY. I grew up listening to punk rock and still find it inspiring. In my spare time I love reading good, ambitious literature, write and draw.
I'm a freegan.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Here used to be a world map with all the countries I've been to marked. Somehow I can't upload it on new CS website, so look for the image in my profile pictures.

Teach, Learn, Share

Inspire me with your story and I'll try to inspire you with mine.
