About Me

CURRENT MISSION

"A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions"

ABOUT ME

If i was to describe myself with a three adjectives I would say:

Social, spontanious, curious.

I love to be around other people. Having long chats about everything and nothing is one of the best things in life. I also enjoy hectic discussions and deep conversations about life etc. Spending time with others, especially friends and family, is very important to me but I also like to be on my own. I'm the kind of person who likes solitude, but only when it's self-chosen. I think having a moment by yourself every now and then is healthy. Coming home from work and sit by yourself for a while and read or watch a movie is necessary to reaload the batteries.

I think it's good to have plans. But I'm not the person who has my whole life already figured out. I like to be able to be spontanious, try things I didn't know I wanted to do until I've tried them. After all, even if you do have everything planned, you never know how things will turn out for you.

The thing I like most about myself is my curiosity. I always want to learn new things. I think that by learning about others you learn more about yourself as well.

One of the reasons why i want to try CS is that I want to see more of the places I go to than just the tourist sights, even though I want to visit them as well. By living with locals I hope to be introduced to their culture and their favorite spots in their city.

PHILOSOPHY

We only have one life to live. A huge part of this time we spend on working, sleeping etc. I say let's take care of the time we have. Right now. "Don't put of the things you can do today until tomorrow."

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I can unfortunately not host anyone in my home.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I am new to CS but I have friends who have been surfing and they have told me that it was an amazing experience so I am eager to get started and get to know new people.

Interests

Travelling, meeting new ppl, learn about cultures, language, music, watching movies and series, spend time with my friends, talking, singing (i'm a terrible singer but enjoy it just as much), reading, shopping, photographing etc.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

When I was ten and travelled to Thailand with my family. We had to take a longer way over Nepal and China because this was just a few months after 9/11 and USA had just invaded Afghanistan. Almost everyone else on the plane was sleeping but I couldn't. I was sitting and looking out trough the window when the sun rose and shone on the peaks of Himalaya that rised through the clouds. It was an amazing feeling!

Teach, Learn, Share

People who are not afraid of giving of themselves and opening up to others and who like me is interested in learning about and experiencing other cultures
