About Me

CURRENT MISSION

"Here is the test to find whether your mission on earth is finished. If you're alive, it isn't."

ABOUT ME

Let the others have their say

PHILOSOPHY

"Borders? I haven't seen any, but i know they exist in some people's minds".

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Mostly hosting and travelling; though I do like meeting up with similarly-minded couchsurfers and attending the CS-meetings from time to time, even if not that regularly anymore.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

In a few words: broad and amazing. Discovered the whole new world of fellow travellers, culture vultures, music addicts, night creatures, book worms, from Spain, Italy, Germany, US, UK, Israel, South Africa, Belgium, Sweden, Canada, Australia and a bunch of a few other places where I know most surely have made some new friends.

Interests

"The only inmoral thing is banality" - just a literal translation from a nice Italian song, but i really follow it. All new and unexplored potentially awakes my interest. And i really try to escape the common places, they just obscure the clear vision of this awesome world.

Music, Movies & Books

Step into my music world: http://www.last.fm/user/VarWara

A book list would probably take up the whole page, but Ballard, Auxley, Thoreau, Nabokov, Bulgakov, J. Goytisolo are definitely among my Masters.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Travelling and meeting awesome people

Teach, Learn, Share

Take a deep breath and carry on. Don't look back, but not fastforward your life either. Smile when it rains.
