About Me

CURRENT MISSION

climb l'Alpe d'Huez faster than Marco Pantani

ABOUT ME

I don't really like writing about myself; I think you should better find out for yourself how do you like (or hate, for that matter) me - I certainly can't convince you in a handful of sentences ;)

I think about myself as an open-minded, liberal guy. You know, I don't really mind if people are different, that's exactly what makes living on this planet so beautiful. Just don't try to convince me about how wrong I am in not believing in the ancient Greek Gods, and I'm sure we will get along perfectly :)

PHILOSOPHY

this part really needs to be filled out as soon as possible

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I just got in touch with CS last August, after I arrived to Montreal. I never hosted nor slept on someone else's couch before, but I'd very much like to try both of them in the near future. I also plan on hosting after I go back to Hunary - so if you are interested in Hungarian fine cuisine, or wines, just drop me a message ;) (but please note that I'll be staying in Canada until the end of December)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Attended some of the Friday night events in Montreal, but I have never hosted or visited anyone. I also try to attend the weekly French "courses" in Montreal (you know, trying to catch up with everything I forgot since secondary school)
