Manage my time effectively
I love travelling. I'm keen on visiting new countries and beautiful cities. I also love nature. I'm energetic and outgoing. I like meeting and talking to people from all age groups.
You must find your goals and go for them. It's important to believe in yourself, persist and be willing to work for your dreams.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I used to live in a big flat with 2 rooms and then I hosted a lot of people and spent my days with them showing them around Budapest. I loved that! :-)
Now I live in a small flatlet (36 sqm) so I can host only one person at a time. There is only one room that you share with me. If you snore then please don't stay with me because then I cannot sleep. I go to bed quite late and I get up early. I teach English at home and sometimes my first student arrives as early as 7:00 a.m.
The flat is about 45 minutes from the city centre by public transport.
I am happy to give any information and help regarding Budapest. So if you have any questions or need some help just ask me :-) Also I can recommend good restaurants, nice places for sightseeing, hiking, swimming etc.
Budapest is a cheap and popular place among foreigners and hopefully you will have a good experience here :-)
When I went to Copenhagen I stayed at a very nice person for a longer time. There I met other couchsurfers, too. For me it was a really good experience meeting cool people from different countries and my host was super!
Later I moved to a kollegium where I hosted a few people and there I had some useful experience.
I came back to Budapest in March, 2013 and in April I started hosting . I had surfers almost every day and I have made a few friends this way.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I walked across Carrick-a-rede Rope Bridge in Northern Ireland. As I am afraid of heights it was very frightening for me. Moreover, there was a strong wind so the bridge was moving, which made this adventure even scarier for me . But finally I managed to survive :-)
