About Me

I'm currently living in a large shared apartment in Athens. Since there are many travelers staying here together, please apply through this page so that we can reserve you some space (there will probably be some spare mattresses available):

Let's talk: I'm eager to hear what you think about life, the universe and everything.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

I am one of the founders of The Travel Club, an organization that promotes travel culture. In our free accommodation projects (in Turkey, Spain and Georgia) we hosted 784 travelers in 6 months, mostly through CS.

After ten years on CS, I think I've seen it all.

Interests

I like books and plants, long journeys and tricky situations. I like studying languages, drinking wine, learning poetry 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, 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, and especially that timeless moment between waking up and realizing where I am.

Music, Movies & Books

I read a lot and thoroughly enjoy talking about books. Furthermore, I have a big passion for traditional music from the Balkans, so I can bore you stiff with that anytime you want. But it goes together with some alcohol. And please, whatever you do, don't let me sing.

I also watch movies, but I'm too lazy to list them here. I like animations (especially old Russian ones!), documentaries and comics.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I was born (and I have a belly button to prove it). Also, I have written a book about Africa. Can you believe it?

Teach, Learn, Share

I play the harmonica, but I'm quite reluctant to play in front of others. However, if you're a keen harmonica player (or wannabe) and you bring your own instrument, we could try something :) I also have some percussion instruments (darbuka, tarabuka, doumbek), but I'm not good at that either.

Here's me playing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jx08mt5j9zk
