About Me


To build underground channels between Tenerife and Europe


ALL (hehe) about me: From shy school pupil I had become one of the lost youth of post-communist Budapest. Then I got married and moved to the countryside to take care of our organic garden in the countryside for 6 years. Then I was a freelance translator and literary researcher for some years, then I turned into tranceparty-organizer. I got divorced, left Hungary to become a travelling street artist and after two years I've found my actual home on Tenerife in a cave. And I am still only halfway :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Surfing, hosting, travelling and some group activity


Hosting, surfing and also communicating people through some groups. This last part of CS is one of my favourite :)


Reading, writing, travelling, nature, cooking, oriental and firedance, hithchiking, psytrips and festivals, alternative ways of seeing and living life, and learning all kinds of new things, except acrobatic parashooting and spider-taming.

Music, Movies, and Books

There is so much :) This is just a selection for the moment.
Angela Carter: The Bloody Chamber; Hunter S. Thompson: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas; Lewis Carroll: Through the Looking Glass; M. Weiss and T. Hickmann: The Dragonlance Chronicles; Tibor Fischer: The Thought Gang; Gaiman and Pratchett: Good Omens, and so much more...
The Doors, Shpongle, all kinds of ethno and folk music, psytrance, but I love surprises as well :)
Hair; Star Wars IV-VI.; Natural Born Killers; Trainspotting; Stranger Than Fiction

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
