About Me

CURRENT MISSION

“Everyone is an explorer. How could you possibly live your life looking at a door and not go open it?”

ABOUT ME

"We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open." - I´m right here ,right now to take the best out of it!

I`m like an energizer bunny going fast foward and taking part of any activity what is interesting and fun.Now my plans involve getting CS Tallinn group more active in Tallinn and around Europe.

I have been involved in different environmental groups to help clean Estonia of the oil spillage and garbage all over the country.

One day I had idea why not to make comething for the couchsurfers who I meet all the time.CD about Estonia as a small gift and also to advertise our country and our people.But later I have just used memory sticks to transfer info.So I`ll try to make every Couchsurfer a copy about My Estonia. Photos about Estonia(selection of my folders)Estonian music + some movies (Documentary ,Comedy,Action) to see small part of Estonia through my eyes :))

I like to attend different cultural events such as museums, music festivals, classical music, theatre, but I like clubbing as well...basically anything that could be fun...I`m the man to join :))

PHILOSOPHY

Every person has his or her own Karma. This Karma was based on prior decisions, and actions a person has made or intends to make. Another easy way to understand Karma is through the law of cause and effect. For every cause there is an inevitable effect. What you do not want done to yourself, do not do to others.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

"Teeme Ära 2008"There was more than 10 000 tons of illegal waste lying around in Estonian nature. In october 2007, as a group of active citizens, we realised that something drastic needs to be done. We developed a special software and geomapped more than 10 000 dumping sites all over the country. And one day in 2008, engaging hundreds of organisations and more than 50 000 volunteers, we cleaned it all up in just 5 hours!
"Let`s Do It- World Cleanup" movement what started in 2008 in a little country called Estonia expanded into 96 countries and more than 7 million volunteers http://www.letsdoitworld.org/"

Amazing things are all around us,just have to notice that more,but few:
*Jumping around mud vulcanoes in Azerbijan.
*Floting and drinking beer on Dead Sea.
*Got lost from friends around Taj Mahal.
*Looking at the sunset ontop of mountain near Petra and listeing local folk music.
*Arrive early morning in Palenque for the fog.
*Chilling the best white beach in the world- Tulum/Mexico.
*Superb hospitality in Morocco.
*Snowball fight top of Mount Tochal/Iran in middle of summer.
*Having shelter from rain and sleeping in internet cafe in Baku.
*Walking 1000 steps up the chimney in Iru Electrical Plant.
*Going up to the Adam`s Peak with 4000 steps in Sri Lanka.
*Got stuck in Pogradec,Albania what came out with the best place and hostel to stay.
*Drinking Bhang Lassi and hovering in Pushkar/India.
*Swimming in old and cold vulcano crater in Cerro Chato/Costa Rica
*Have seen so many fun people around the world,i guess there is still some hope for humanity.
