About Me


To be a good boy


It's better to ask other peolple for telling about me, but I'll try to do it by myself :)

I'm quite person. I have a quite home where you can see a loud crowd very rarely. But I have many friends, many favorite places and companies where I love to spend some time.

I love to walk and talk eye-to-eye.
I'm not very like noise for example, don't like "night life" and strong alkohol, don't smoke.

For many people my life could look boring at first glance, but I don't think so :)
I like to walk, to travel, to talk, to sharing some ideas and memories.
