About Me


exploring myself in the world i am living at


i traveled and lived in so many places, i love traveling but i love my own country too. I am very hungarian in loads of aspects but for some reason i happen to be living somewhere else for the last 5 years. i live in edinburgh :) i dont like leaving people behind when i move from one place to an other though.
i study film making and a bit of photography too. i am quite into analog techniques. but i am quite interested in a loads of small other things too.
i am easy going, really open minded for most of the thing. I like trying things out before making up my mind on them.
i like nice food, when i dont have to make them.
i am most of the time out doing something. it is a big wish of mine to go up to north of scotland for a week or two just travel around mountains and villages.

this section might sound a collection of random thoughts but i am not too good in writing about myself! hopefully when you meet me all these comes together


cliche and it does not always works out- enjoy the day and dont stress about the next ones.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

i really like nature and villages people are always so different their.
i like observing people on the street. I like watching body languages and peoples reaction on thing.
i am not really into sports, just on a basic level, but i enjoy riding a bike with an other person and if she or he pedals. i loved kanooing with my great polish friend. and than everything usual i like, reading, films, photography, nice little cafes, hidden clubs.
