About Me


To spread smiles, hav fun, explore and share knowledge, experiences and the last bread :)


Love life.. stay curious.. explore.. bring good vibes..

Leave the world better than you find :)


The universe is full of beauty..
Life., Abundance., Energy..
Let the door of senses stay opened..
look at the smiling face,
listen the music,
feel the wind,
taste that great food,
smell those flowers,
sip that delicious drop of grape,
speak good words

Let there be a purpose.


Why I’m on Couchsurfing


To support travellers by hosting and bring good vibes and experiences to my host.

Passing the (real) mission of the project


Love this community and the concept.. It encourages people from all walks of life to go out and explore..

My first experiences were in Canada - very interesting.. and over 13 years have passed by..

Lot of nice experiences in France, different parts of Britain, Italia, Espagne, Polska, Norge, Österreich, Magyarország , Hrvatska, Taiwan, Hawaii, Quebec, Mexico..

Music, Movies, and Books

Any good music that turns On, boosts the spirit up. Classical to Home.

Quite a few occasions stayed as a only person admiring a street musician in the cold.. perhaps, it was awful for the rest!?

Movies: Generally like all quality direction and cinematography - A few of them - Inception, Avatar, Into the wild, Amelie Poulain, Sherlock Holmes, Die Hard, Home, Nayagan..
Need to catch up, lol
