About Me

I am an inquisitive, easy-going and a little bit spontaneous person with the potential of a good listener. Also, I'm a little bit ironic, so I really like people with a good sense of humor.

I have a background in civil engineering. I'm in love with architecture and urban planning indeed. When I get in a new location I'll prefer to walk through that and search for little unusual details that makes that place so unique, take a photo or a sketch and then never forget.

One of my most desirable destination to travel is the Faroe Islands. Hopefully that day will come soon :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm just looking to meet open-minded people who love getting out and exploring. I think spending time with locals is the best way to broaden your understanding of the world.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: actually all kind of music depends on the mood. The last obsession is Måneskin.

Books: Les Miserables, The Fountainhead, The subtle art of not giving f*ck, Crime and punishment and but so The infinite jest (in the process).

Movies: I have favorite filmmakers: Yorgos Lanthimos, Quentin Tarantino and Stanley Kubrick. Most movies directed by them are brilliant! But I wish to single out some of them: "The Lobster", "Pulp Fiction", "The Hateful Eight", "The Shining". For some reasons I really enjoy down-to-earth teenage dramas as "The Fault in Our Stars" and "I Feel Pretty" once in a while.

TV: Netflix, Standup (Bo Burnham)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The weird stuff is the stuff I remember the most:
- I spent a night at the Boston railway station with two of my friends and dozens of Dunkin' Donats' rats.
- We also went to an old camp site in the winter when it was minus 40 degrees outside and we couldn't come back until it became warmer and less snowy.
- Sounds creepy but I lost consciousness twice in my life and both of them took place in a church.
- I've tried to hitchhike in the USA. My first ever lift there was an older man on a bicycle.
- I‘ve became a vegetarian after I’d watched Chicken Run in my childhood.
