About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Go further with my appetite for seeing new places in this world, improve in some sports and most of all be open for what destiny throws me while on the way

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 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 couches in very different places already, hosted about 20-25 people in Vienna and showed around Coimbra/Vienna 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...
and most of all... travelling, of course

Music, Movies, and 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 rhythm, would be endless list...
Paulo Coelho, Dan Brown, Nicholas Sparks, should try Humbert Eco...

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 (with exception for dance if considered an art), but still it's a work that impresses me...

What I Can Share with Hosts

My little box commonly named soul if they have the capability to find the way there. Anything that they ask and that I know the answer/how to do/have an opinion about. Same is valid for guests, both ways are important in CS.

Countries I’ve Lived In

Austria, Canada, Finland, Portugal
