About Me


have a productive year to be able to retire by 2016 :)


A Sagittarius by birth, a teacher by vocation, a dancer by inspiration. A workaholic, but still a fun person to hang out with. Rather versatile - can talk about high matters hours long, or dance at a club all night, read or do some quiet art/craft at home, or spend time actively with friends.


There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve - the fear of failure!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


couchsurfed at several places and also hosted a few people


Have stayed at the friends of friends of friends' houses several times while traveling, which was very helpful. Also surfed several couches and hosted a few people as well. Very positive experience.
