About Me

CURRENT MISSION

interactive travelling and photographic projects

ABOUT ME

Update: In brief I have been a scientist for 11 years and for the last 4 I knew it was not my call. I do love science but I have lost the motivation required for being a professional and good scientist so I decided to take a break. I became a freelancer photographer in the start with Yuri Arcurs Production and now I work on my own. I embarked into one year of INTERACTIVE TRAVELLING, a year of discovering new places, new people, new lives and fully packed of things to do and remember. I found hosts that allowed me to work for or with them in exchange for hospitality. Including a year working in a wonderful farm in Finland.

Now I started travelling again so if you want to be part of my interactive chronicles just hop on and you can be a character or a chapter in the story of my own epic journey. Drop me a line or find me at my blog: http://drmchronicles.wordpress.com

Let'start the interactivity! -- Old but still holding true bio ;)

For now I can say I am an open minded scientific subject. I have been studying for most part of my life but under the rational thinking the reason for my path choice is a broad curiosity about every aspect in life. Once the labcoat is off the more artistic side take the lead and I am not hiding that can also end up on some stage for interesting more or less improvise performances. I try to keep description on a short text as there is more in life than read about someone and I am more up for the direct discovery of another person.

PHILOSOPHY

Life is short and probably only one so make the most of it however you can keeping it honest, healthy and worthy so that the next generation can have a good example to follow

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Introduced to Couchsurf by my ex-girlfriend and spread the couchsurf philosophy to all my best friends

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I like to have some time to spend with my hosts or guests but sometimes an emergency couchsurf request just for a short surf can make you discover beautiful people

Interests

Never got round to find out a way to put them on a list that can give some insights on my personality so except for the usual suspects I am happy to find new ones when travelling and speaking with somebody else

Music, Movies & Books

Usually into Sci-fi or fantasy, comedy (romantic or not), classic, novel, oldies, musicals, animation, japanese and american comics. For music from Abba to Zero skipping entries through the alphabet (nobody can listen all of them anyway so I am not pretending to like everything and anything)

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Lapland riding a dog-sled, bathing (jumping in and out) from the iced river after the sauna...plenty of dreams came true thanks to a wonderful person, Cape Knivskjellodden the northermost place in old Europe only reachable through a 18km hike (yes guys Nordkapp is not the northestmost point!!)

Countries I've Visited

Cambodia, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Japan, Korea, Republic of, Malaysia, Myanmar, Netherlands, Norway, San Marino, Sweden, Thailand, United States, Viet Nam
