About Me

Hi there! :)
I will try to describe myself in a few words then - born in Bulgaria, living in Leeds, UK since 2014, I have travelled a bit around the world but I am far from having seen everything.
I am thirsty for travel and tend to book holidays on a whim :)
I sing and play guitar, love art, recently started painting. Read books and listen to music. Nature, sunshine and positive vibes all the way. Always trying to help people. I am also a passionate chef. Also love to do yoga and explore and do a bit of exercise here and there.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Love traveling and want to spend it with nice people, get to know locals because thats the only way one can see the true destination of their travells.
It's always nice to spend time with people especially if you are a solo traveller.

Music, Movies, and Books

Any music really but I prefer old school Rock from before the 80s - give me some Beatles and The Doors and I will be happy. :) Also I currently absolutely adore Aurora Aksnes from Norway
Cloud Atlas has got to be my most favourite movie.
The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfus is The Book.
