About Me

[!!! Attention !!!] Couchsurfing's notifications suck and are not sent to my email, so after you've sent me a request, please write to me A MESSAGE on facebook to check my CS - I will reply to your request here, on CouchSurfing!
- -

- Please try and read my profile( or as much as you can :P ), especially the accommodation part(My Home), because I also read your profile when you send me a request.
Thanks! :) -

Hosting availability - I am a freelancer and involved in several projects, so my schedule is sometimes quite random, but organized :P
Sometimes I work during the weekends, meaning that I am out of the city.
Sometimes I am in the city for several days or 1-2 weeks.
Sometimes I only get home to change my clothes and/or shower.
Sometimes I don't leave my place for a few days.
It depends :)

I like to hitchhike and I love to meet new people. I am a very sociable person and I like to talk and connect to the others! :)
I like to learn and test new things and I like to make stuff(DIY projects).


I like to travel, preferably without money ---> hitchhiking.

I love nature and mountains.

Photography is one of my biggest passions and also to improvise various devices for taking unique and high-quality photos.

You can check my gallery here: or

I have a very good sense of humor and I like to joke and laugh.

I enjoy eating :) and especially I like natural stuff and products. I am a vegan. I eat anything but no meat and no animal products.
Even though I am a vegan, I am not a fanatic.

Besides eating I LOVE to cook.

I am interested in the environment and keeping it clean.
I like to play the guitar, although I am not very experienced. I also like to sing and I would like to do it on a stage, but I don't think I am talented(this doesn't stop me from singing )

I enjoy the simple stuff in life, and they make my day, all the time.

I am fond of spirituality and spiritual evolution, but I am not a freak :) I only debate and talk about this subject if the person I am talking with is interested in it.

I am eating vegan and I don't mind what others eat, but don't bring meat to my place, please.
So if you like plant-based food you can eat what I prepare, or you can prepare for yourself anything that you want, using my kitchen.


I want to evolve and to meet awesome people. I am learning new stuff from every person I meet. I like to enjoy every moment and to be grateful for everything that I have.

I believe that everything happens for a reason, so it's not coincidental that we met :)

*I am traveling around Europe, and around the World, with my project, without using money for food and accommodation.

Now I will travel for 12 months through 12 European countries in order to help and raise awareness about homeless, drug addicts and orphans. *

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have my home-base in Cluj-Napoca, living by myself, where I can host people.
I am open to meet travelers for a cup of coffee or a walk in the city if that is the case, or just giving tips or bits of info to those in need.

Even though I have a home-base I still travel A LOT! :D


I hosted and I was hosted by people that literally changed my life!

I made friends and at the moment I am meeting new people, who will become my friends(hopefully :P ) by surfing at their places in my worldwide hitchhiking trip :)

Music, Movies, and Books

I like mostly all the movies, but lately I am more interested about documentary films about what lies behind a lot of the things we take for granted.

I like all of the music. I love dancing and if I am in the mood I won't stop the whole night. I had quite a few nights like that which gave me blisters on my feet, but still I don't regret a thing!

I don't read too much, because I don't really have much free time for it, but I like to read self-development books, but also books about spirituality, energy, chakras and self-development.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I started my worldwide, hitchhiking, trip on the 16th of March 2013 because of the surfers that I've met! :D

I've been on the roof of Europe's tallest uninhabited building, in Pécs, Hungary.

I've set my foot in 3 different countries in just 2 hours: Italy, Slovenia and Croatia

I did dumpster-diving in Ljubljana and saw how easy and rewarding it is, and how much food unfortunately is thrown away...

Spent a whole weekend with an amazing girl, in Portugal, on a empty beach where there was a ground-level cave where we slept.

Got from Paris to Vienna in 19 hours!(by hitchhiking)

Teach, Learn, Share

I could talk to you for hours about energies, chakras and all those kind of things(only if you're interested).

I can share with you my opinions about life, dreams and purposes. I can tell you my conclusions about what matters in lifer after my 2+ years of traveling.

I would love to share all my knowledge about free traveling, alternative ways of living, hitchhiking and mostly about how you can be happy and enjoy every moment of this wonderful life. I am becoming a motivational speaker, so I can share my knowledge on that too. Also about may other stuff.

I would like to learn:
- to play the guitar;
- to speak Spanish;
- to speak German
- to learn new stuff :)
