About Me


Making friends worldwide and live under the sun a full real life. :) Also doing for life here an amazing activity Sustainable Tourism:


Hi there! I'm Constantin, a friendly gentleman and enthusiastic conversationalist who appreciates good humor. I like to help others and am organized, flexible and punctual.

I’ve been an CouchSurfing host several years, now active and in the AirBnB community, meeting travelers from all over the world. I enjoy hosting guests and teaching them about the Moldovan way of life, while learning about theirs.

I’m passionate about permaculture (a kind of sustainable gardening philosophy) and love to cook, read books and learn. I also enjoy listening to music, watching movies, and appreciating all that is beautiful about life. I love tasty food - especially pizza. :) I also like to incorporate vegetarian, vegan, and raw practices into what I cook.

More about me and my place


My life motto is one coined by American entrepreneur and motivational speaker, Chris Gardner: "Don’t ever let somebody tell you, you can’t do something... You got a dream, you gotta protect it... People can’t do something themselves... They wanna tell you, you can’t do it... If you want something go get it!”

"Nu da voie nimanui sa-ti spuna ca nu poti sa faci ceva ... Daca ai un vis, trebuie sa-l protejezi ...Cand oamenii nu pot face ei insisi ceva, au sa-ti spuna ca nici tu nu poti ... Daca vrei ceva, lupta si obtine. Punct!" Chris Gardner

"Non permettere mai che qualcuno ti dica che non puoi fare qualcosa... Se hai un sogno lo devi proteggere... Quando le persone non sanno fare qualcosa lo dicono a te che non lo sai fare... Se vuoi qualcosa, vai e inseguila. Punto!" Chris Gardner

"Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself." Leo Tolstoy

"Be the change you want to see in the world." Gandhi

"People were created to be loved, things were created to be used; the reason why the world is in chaos right now is because things are being loved, and people are being used." unknown autor
