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've been on CS since 2006. I'm the kind that really, really "misses the old CS". I hosted a lot in the past when I lived in Budapest, Hungary, because I was living by myself and I had a huge appartment. I didn't host a lot recently because I tend to live in crazy expensive cities with tiny flats. I've given free stuff through CS when i didn't need it anymore. I have had my best CS experiences as a guest in Russia. I think we tend to have misconceptions about countries and cultures in general.
