HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Passionatelly!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

So far, so good ;)

Interests

Actually, I find living extremely interesting. Apart of that: tai-chi, yoga, reiki, trekking, volunteering, meeting people, smiling, learning languages, playing with words and with colors, walking with my eyes wide open, wondering, keeping silent, talking, enjoying the smell of green tea just after you put the leaves into a pot, enjoying flowers and sun and the color of oranges and taste of peaches and all the possible ways I can ever walk. Moreover, in the course of my life, I developed a strong passion for stories of all kinds. I love them.

Music, Movies, and Books

Musik of all sorts, I love music. Anything from reggae to jazz, anything with guitar or piano...

Movies only when somebody forces me to sit down for a while: I liked Frida, most of Amodovar's films, Kosturica's films, I loved Persepolis, Samsara, Amelie.

I love to read Salman Rushdie, Arundhati Roy, Milan Kundera (even if I think the lightness of being is pretty bearable), Sasha Stanisic, Kazuo Ishiguro, Haruki Murakami. And I think Gandhiji had definitelly a point, started my own experiments with the truth. I like to read Chinese and Korean zen-buddhist poetry and H.H. Dalai Lama, Rumi, Khalil Gibran, Isabel Allende, Catherynne Valente, Eden Robinson, Tomson Highway...

Well, after all, I like to read ;-)
Especially on the train. Especially when it's raining.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The Himalayas, any mountain summit, its fragrance, nights outdoors, their fragrance, the first sight of the sea, its sound, any given hand, smiling children and smiling Ladakhi grannies, nights by the rivers in the Amazon basin, touching a glacier, rolling on the floor laughing, traveling alone in the Balcans... These are small things. But I love my life for them. ;)
