About Me

I am a rather a simple guy who grew up in Lithuania and always had a passion for travelling and discovering new ''roads'' in life. Currently, for a third year now, I live, study and work in the Netherlands!

Actively doing various kinds of sports, the most favourite one being kiteboarding! My passion for travelling came to live after I moved to the Netherlands and since then, every summer I try to take a break from ''routine'' by shooting a ticket to somewhere far away. At this point of my life, I've been in most of the Eastern and Central Europe, including some of the countries in the West.

Apart from my main interests/hobbies (travelling and sports) I find myself mostly occupied throughout the year, as I have to manage both - study and work. So as I said - a simple, but nevertheless interesting guy :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To travel more cheaply but more importantly to make new connections, whilst meeting nice people along the way :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Probably the most amazing thing I've done in my life and which continues to be the most memorable experience - is my backpacking trip in China back in 2015. I've spent 20 days, when I went from Beijing all the way to the South (3000km) to the province named Yunnan and mostly stayed there travelling around. From the whole journey, the most AMAZING thing that I've done was a two-day hike at the Tiger Leaping Gorge, as only later I've discovered it being one of the most famous hike routes in the world. Met numerous local/ amazing people along the way, with whom I continue to keep in touch, who contributed to making this trip one of the best experiences of my life!

Teach, Learn, Share

'' The very basic core of man's living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence, there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun''. - Christopher McCandless

What I Can Share with Hosts

Probably the most valuable thing that I could share - are the most famous Lithuania dishes, which I am able to make!
