About Me

ABOUT ME

I have a degree in law but I'm much more interested in arts and history (altough sadly I don't have the talent to write/act/dance/play an instrument)

PHILOSOPHY

"Non farti mai dire dagli altri chi devi amare, e chi devi odiare. Sbaglia per conto tuo, sempre."

"Legnagyobb cél pedig, itt, e földi létben,
Ember lenni mindég, minden körülményben."

"Maradj hűséges Istenedhez, hazádhoz es jellemedhez. Amen"

"Mit mondott az öreg Kiss? Ne csak együnk, igyunk is!"

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

- actually I work in Luxembourg, so hosting is usually not an option -

If my schedule and obligations allow it, I will be always glad to host you in Lendva or on weekends also in Budapest. All in one, if you decide that you want to discover Lendva despite its relative non-importance, I will do everything I can to facilitate your visit (including picking you up at the nearest (25 km) station and showing you the region).

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I was hosted several times in France years ago and I hosted six or seven times till now - yeah, Lendva is becoming increasingly popular:). I think CS is much more than a simple free hosting page: first of all, as most of the time I travel alone it means a conversation partner, next, the CSers take you to places you would pass by normally, and the most important, (with a few exceptions) CSers are among the best and the most interesting people on the world!

Interests

travelling, history and art history, classical literature, music, theatre, dance (swing and charleston), bridge, a bit of cycling, the Catalanist movement and skateboarding (altough I started it too late to make any progress)
