About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to enjoy and to understand - don't know which one comes first.

ABOUT ME

I like to hear and tell stories, I get involved in long-talks, interested in people: life style, culture. I like live music and party with friends. I like to travel alone.

More - we can talk about me when we meet, until then see how other CS-rs describe me

PHILOSOPHY

we'll talk if you want, and I can talk a lot

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

hosting almost any kind of travelers, if I have the possibility
I prefer wilderness and small villages so I had few opportunities to surf others' couches.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

good ones

Interests

wilderness, mountaineering, meeting other cultures, diving, music, food, anthropology, photography. I like to stay in-touch with reality, with how people live.

I try to explore places, to meet different cultures. I NEVER use all-inclusive tourism. I consider it a threat for local communities and for mind-opening travel.

I like live music performances (not pop).

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I met different people/cultures, leaved part of my dreams, allowed myself time to think about ... and tried to enjoy.

I descended and explore some caves and canyons with friends, in Romania.
I've been in few mountaineering expeditions, Caucas, Himalaya, Andes and North Patagonia.
I dived in beautiful sites in Egypt and Indonesia.
I ride a camel and camp between sand dunes, in Maroco, with my ex girlfriend.
I lived shortly with some remote communities in the jungle and on the rivers in Indonesian Archipelago and Papua New Guinea. Fallow them hunting and fishing, heard their legends, participate in rituals performed by their shamans. And become friend with some people from those tribes.
I started to publish some of the stories and photos which I took in my travels.
