About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To live and let live

ABOUT ME

Cheers! I'm Arie and I'm a Ukranian-Israeli, currently residing in Lviv. I love everything about the world we live in, even things that can hardly be loved at the first glance, and my goal in life is to learn as much about this world as possible. Couchsurfing is probably one of the best ways to do it.
I've been around some places in the world (but not nearly enough), and I would love to tell you all about it, and of course - listen to all your stories and experiences. We ARE our experiences, and we learn from each other - which is all it really is about.

PHILOSOPHY

Live and let live, as stated before =)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I'd love to couchsurf and get to know new, cool people, and I'd love to have someone stay at my place in Lviv whenever possible!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've been surfing in China and the Balkans, hosting in Israel. I've met some really wonderful people that made a very lasting impression, and made some really good friends. So this thing works!

Interests

I like interesting, sincere people, good (sometimes old fashioned) music and nature. I like to learn new things, sometimes things most people would consider totally irrelevant, but I like it anyway ;)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I have been a biker, an IT manager, a navy greasemonkey - I guess there is not one thing that I would single out. Except maybe that I am learning to be a human, that in itself is amazing. But it's an amazing thing that's still in process :)

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you what I think of the world and everything that's in it and I would love to learn the same back.
