About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Happiness and Comfort! --> Forever believing in something.

ABOUT ME

My parents were a breed of hippies and even took me travelling early on. Although I can't say I feel "the call of the wild", I like adventure. I'm complicated, and no, I don't want to move out of my zone of comfort. And to sound cheesy, I heard from a movie (! yeah right) that paradise is not a place we can look for, but how we feel at a moment in out lives. Did I mention I went to 44 countries.

PHILOSOPHY

"It is harder to crack a prejudice than an atom". (Albert Einstein) Personally I haven't chosen yet between materialist, immanent or even modern imperialist dialectic.

May I ask if it may be that folks in general, I mean people, during their lives, do and fulfill a kind of program that is comprised within their names? Where is Salvation?

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I hosted a couple couchsurfers and I go drifting places

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I don't remember. That was a lot.

Interests

Russian novels from the 19th century. Financial literature on technical analysis, mutual funds and that kind of stuff. Cooking new and exciting recipes. Constructivist, futurist, post modern or just improvised wall art. I like making balloon animals. Sex.

Music, Movies & Books

Music.. I'm in 80s Rock right now - please be indulgent!! Alice Cooper of Wayne's World fame, often ACDC, the Beach boys (that's the 70s heh). Prob. Jim Morison, Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith. Duke Ellington, that happens..
Movies..
The English Patient. Recently The Theory of Everything, Still Alice.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I've lived in 7 countries, including busy European ones (I tried). I've seen multiple continents, nations, riots, catastrophes and celebrations. I've met a lot of people (sometimes I find the pictures and it drives me to tears).
But no, can't single one here.

Teach, Learn, Share

Art interpretation. Conversations on romantic philosophy. Perhaps thoughts on geography.

What I Can Share With Hosts
