About Me


Knowing this world better and knowing myself better!


Hi, I am an open minded person. Like travelling, knowing new places and persons. I like my job: teacher and researcher. I am always and everywhere a researcher... :)


As I wrote I am a researcher: in a wide sense. I would like to know places, cultures, people, and to raise questions! I like asking. I teach my students also not to have an answer too early but to learn asking, raising questions inside. Justice is one of the most important thing for me. I would like to fight for a better world, where oppression will be defeated, and human rights respected totally. I fight for that cause with my teaching, with NGO activities, but with my research activities too. Being an "asker", a researcher is a way to contribute to the construction of a better world. I am a committed cristian man, but I respect all kinds of beliefs. I am gay and out, and I work for equality for LGBTQ people in my country.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am travelling now, so I can't host, but I always use couchsurfing while I am travelling...

I think it's a great idea! I am now a verified member, and I would like to know loads of people and places, and help the others to know my country!


Really a great experience. It is a unique opportunity to know intersting people, to communicate, and to see the world even if you are not rich :)


Literature, films, travelling.
David Lynch, Lars von Trier are my favorite ones, but I like a lot of other directors, too.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

One of my most amazing experience was walking on the cliffs of Moher in Ireland. :)
It was wonderful to swim in the sea in Dubai right before Christmass :)

Teach, Learn, Share

I teach pedagogy at a university, but I am a Hungarian language and literature teacher also. I can teach Italian too :)
I would like to learn anything about other cultures.
