About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Just to be happy. Simple, isn't it?

ABOUT ME

Hey there!

My name is Julija, originally I am from not-so-large-but-beautiful Latvian town Daugavpils, but recently have moved to Riga to start my studies there.

Briefly about me: I study International economic relations, play flute and guitar (and ukulele, huh :D), search myself in this crazy-crazy world. Have been an EVS-volunteer in the Netherlands, hitch-hiked around the Neds, Belgium and Germany, met all kinds of people from all over the world and enjoyed all of this a lot.

I'm one of those, who believes, that our planet is full of great, unusual and interesting people, so don't let me doubt this! (I hope, I won't let you doubt it either;)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

CouchSurfing is one of the most amazing things I've ever discovered, seriously. It all started with me meeting some travellers and showing them around in my hometown Daugavpils in 2011. Then, thanks to CS, I got to know and made contacts with some really nice and cool people, who became good friends of mine afterwards. And when in the beginning of 2013 I went to volunteer in the Neds, I already knew that CS will be my best helper and mate... and so it was: everywhere I travelled (Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Utrecht, Cologne, Brussels, Ghent, Antwerpen, Paris...) I found amazing hosts and every travelling experience was unique. So yeah, I am definetely going to continue to explore CS world :)
