About Me

CURRENT MISSION

(before writing to me, please read my profile and you will soon find out that I do not live in Belgrade anymore... However, from some reason I can´t change my current location, because there is only an option of the place I grew up - which is Belgrade...)

:) I didn't do couchsurfing in ages, so I wanted to get back to it and check the current vibes... I met wonderful people 10 years ago when I was using it during my travels in USA, and I think it can always be a good way to get to know people and experience cities in original and authentic ways... :)
My boyfriend is new to this, so I also want him to experience the beauty of it... :)

ABOUT ME

Originally from Belgrade, Serbia, and living in Jülich, Germany (NRW). My boyfriend Roudy is from Beirut, Lebanon. You can guess what to expect from this Balkan-Arab combo - hospitability and friendliness at first. :)
A third member of the crew is Medi, little fury creature rescued from the streets of Belgrade 8 years ago... Medi is a true people magnet and if you love dogs, I am 100% sure you will fall in love with her!

PHILOSOPHY

Embrace uncertainty. :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Hang out with surfers if I'm able to.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I met great hosts when I was studying in USA, visited Boston, Pittsburg, San Francisco, LA, NYC...
I am thankful to all of them and very happy that I had a chance to meet them! :)

Interests

I have many different interests, and it is a common thing to end up in endless conversations about almost anything. I am not an expert in sports, so that might be a weak point, hehe... But spirituality, art, cultural traditions, psychology and such... make me talk a lot. :)

I love spending time in nature, doing long hikes with my dog, but I feel that my most natural habitat is the seaside.
I enjoy painting and drawing, reading...
I love to dance salsa and forró, both learned in the past year or two.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

(Sleeping under the open sky. I saw three UFOs that night. Crazy experience.) - this is an old one...
I rescued a puppy from the streets in Belgrade, haven´t been supported about it by anyone except one friend, and this decision definitely changed my life in a magnificent way. :)

Teach, Learn, Share

Let's cook together! Tasting new food is always exciting experience for me, and me and my boyfriend would love to prepare some Serbian and Lebanese dishes for you. I also became a fan of Indian cuisine, because my flatmate is from India.

Music share is my favorite. Since I moved from Serbia, I started really appreciating all the Balkan music heritage which is beautiful in an unique way.

I can play a bit of guitar, and I am in general good with rhythms because I was doing Serbian traditional dances since I was a kid.

Lets go for salsa or forró dance event! :)

Dogs' behavior and psychology. If you get a chance to meet me together with my dog Medi, you would be able to learn a lot, about dogs, but also - about yourself. Dogs are big teachers for humanity! :)

I have more than 900 days streak on Duolingo with learning Spanish and Portugese, but don't really have a chance to practice speaking it hahah... so I guess I would be happy to get a chance to practice my Spanish, when possible!
