ATTENTION! We are not in Riga, we are in Liepaja - 200 km from Riga - but I set my location to Riga, because there might be some travellers visiting Riga that would be interested in staying with us in Liepaja, if only they knew there was a project like this.
Anyway, we, The Travel Club, are offering free accommodation and free travel-related workshops to the travellers. There's no catch! Sharing is caring. Find out more:
Let's talk: I'm eager to hear what you think about life, the universe and everything. Or we can just get drunk, curse loudly and sing out of tune.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I've been on CS since the beginning and I think I've seen it all. Prove me wrong.
I like studying languages, reading and spending time in the mountains. I like to move around a lot and explore all sorts of hidden worlds - be it on another continent or in my back yard. I enjoy the frightening vastness of deserts, tranquility of cemeteries, sharp mountain air in the mornings and that peculiar fragrance of trains and railways. I like long winding roads, the calming experience of being utterly lost, the timeless moment between waking up and realizing where I am.
Or at least I used to like all that, many years ago.
In recent years I've been interested mostly in understanding what's wrong with this world and why.
As for my travels, I am not sure what I am looking for nowadays, but my best guess would be: connection. Tiny moments of connection. Small openings, secret passages, fleeting possibility of contact.

Music, Movies, and Books
I've been reading every day of my life for as long as I can remember. I enjoy watching movies, especially documentaries, but I'm too lazy to list any of them here, so I'll only mention John Pilger, my personal idol. Google it!
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I was born (and have a belly button to prove it).
Teach, Learn, Share
What can I teach you? Not much, I'm afraid. I have some Arabic percussion instruments (doumbek, darbuka etc) if you're into that.
What I Can Share with Hosts
If you have a crazy idea and need a partner in crime, I'm all ears.
