Develop an interest in life as you see it; the people,things, literature, music♫ - the world is so rich, simply throbbing with rich treasures, beautiful souls and interesting people. Forget yourself.


Spontaneous, impulsive, optimistic , chaotic, hedonist, creative, randomness, fruityboy, broke, die hard partytrooper, dreamer, trust ( in others and myself ) , deadlinesurfer, post-hippie, bboy , open-minded, zuper macho, laidback, music eater, sharer, child of the sun , full of wanderlust

My old profile


-I prefer to host in weekends fri-mon (I work during weekdays/ you can always ask but chances are higher that I will host you during weekends)
- I prefer to host 1 or 2 travelers
-I usually host you 1 or 2 nights.


*Don't worry, be happy / Hakuna matata
*Carpe diem
*Learn to fail or fail to learn
*Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.
*My religion is kindness
*To dare is to lose one's footing momentarily. Not to dare is to lose oneself.
