About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Impossible is nothing.

ABOUT ME

Open-minded, easygoing, enthusiastic, positive, spontaneous.

PHILOSOPHY

Impossible is nothing.

There is no way to happiness, happiness is the way.

Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the strength to overcome it.

One life, live it! :)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I try to do as much as I can. If not host, at least give advice and share my own experience with other CS members. When in my hometowns, Zagreb or Athens, I gladly go out for drinks with CS members, if I can, regardless if I am the host or not.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have met quite a few CS members on CS parties or while surfing myself in countries like the Czech Republic, Iceland, Serbia, Germany...

Interests

Biology,dance,traveling,sports, books, meeting different cultures and people with different backgrounds, good movies.

Music, Movies & Books

Movies: High Fidelity, Lion King, The Little Mermaid (probaly the strongest reason why I became a marine biologist :). Books: Harry Potter,His Dark Materials, good mystery books or thrillers, non-pink, non-lame drama books. Music - anything that touches my heart or groove at a certain moment.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Lots of stuff, as probably most CS members :) It's hard to pick just one thing, but among the top 5 favourite things that I've done, are: working with wild sea turtles in Athens, wild birds in Belgium, visiting Iceland.

Teach, Learn, Share

Would gladly share some facts on the environment, teach how to dance, teach some basic phrases in the languages I speak, share experiences on pretty much anything that I have done or places that I have visited. :)

Countries I've Visited

Austria, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Canada, Cyprus, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Macedonia, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Serbia, Slovenia, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey, United Kingdom, Vatican City State

Countries I've Lived In

Belgium, Croatia, Greece, United Kingdom
