About Me

CURRENT MISSION

make the rest of my dreams come true or in other words find a balance that makes me happy (and not bored) with my life!

ABOUT ME

Difficult to speak about me, but in some points I'm a typical gemini, flexible, always doing/thinking about lots of stuff at the same time, I'm friendly and sociable... I like adventure at least till some level... well, I look like conventional, but I'm a little bit unconventional, I mean some friends say I'm not common, my parents always complain, haha I lived in Finland and Canada and now I live in Austria and I really love to know different countries and people from different backgrounds...

PHILOSOPHY

try to always have "the time of your life"... so, have fun and make it meaningful!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I surfed some couches in Netherlands/Germany/Poland - as far as I remember, showed around Coimbra and participated in several meetings of the local CS community. These events allowed me to make new friends and, for sure, know very very interesting people... CS also helped me a lot in making new friends when I moved to Vienna

Interests

learn languages (now improving German), riding a bike and feel free, swimming (well more for fitness purposes), definitly watching movies if I have time, listen to music, hang out with friends/ funny people, ballet classes, becoming a good ice skater (this is a very actual project which will take several yrs I guess), dancing, surfing, skiing...

Retirement project (if I survive until that age)/ life project if I win the lottery/ in other words what I would do if I had the money and the time: travel to places in the world which I'm atracted to; reading books which I'm atracted to; finally learn Russian (that language I'm atracted to also...) and continue all the sports I mentioned above...

Music, Movies & Books

Black Swan, Pay it Forward, Imitation Game, The Green Mile, Eragon, Stardust, Harry Potter, Sorcerer's apprentice, some romantic and funny movies... I like music in general, from classical to pop, music is movement and rythm, would be endless list... Paulo Coelho, Dan Brown, Nicholas Sparks, would be eager to try Humbert Eco, but reading is the thing that always comes to my mind when I really have a lotttttttt of spare time which just doesn't happen...

One Amazing Thing I've Done

found someone who lives in another country with very little information and got in touch again (kind of power of destiny) find the perfect opportunity to go to Finland and Canada and then to come to Vienna when I was struggling for those goals and almost thinking I would not fulfill them anymore... some (forced) mutual rush into someone's arms again by power of destiny... maybe I'm just a cold style romantic/ ceptic lover

Teach, Learn, Share

I like making Philosophy... i don't know a lot about theories, but I enjoy speaking about values and strong things in life, in a non-political way... call it more "heart way"... I like artists cause i don't have any talent for that, but still it's a work that impresses me...

What I Can Share With Hosts

My little box commonly named soul if you have the capability to find the way there. Obviously I will share material things like house, food, water, electricity... hehe but that's easy, I can be a generous person

Though I will love hosts who can really find the way to get along, which is way more significative

Countries I've Lived In

Austria, Canada, Finland, Portugal
