About Me




Well-travelled. Clean and tidy, can talk about a lot of topics. Doesn't take too much space. Easy to handle. Overall good product.


I find satisfaction out of experiences. Generally I think life is great and I try not to complain too much, that's my motto.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I give free stuff through CS when i don't need it anymore. I hosted a lot in the past when I lived in Budapest, Hungary. I had a huge flat. I didn't host a lot recently because I tend to live in crazy expensive cities with tiny flats. I have had my best CS experiences as a guest in Russia. We tend to have misconceptions about countries in general.



Jokes, humor
Geopolitics, economics, society, what's going on in the world
Sports and relaxation (especially swimming, yoga)
ART with a big A. I go to a lot of museums
Music, especially electronic music (techno, minimal, house...), i used to go clubbing really late.

Apple computers
Web stuff (html, css, design etc)
Fooding, cheese, wine...
