About Me

Let's start with the girl... her name is Irena (age 32), she's cute and she just can't stay still for a minute. Aaaall the time wants to move around, go out, experience things, try something new. You could say this goes well with the fact she's been a passionate dancer for all her life. Fifteen years of hard training and competing in latin-american dances has left a clear mark on her character.

And the guy? Igor (age 34) is more easy going, always up for a good joke or even some geek talk. He is soooo into music. Has always been. Learned piano when he was little, played guitar in a rock band while in high school and DJing for the last couple of years. He's trying real hard to keep up with all the good music that's out there (leftfield electronica, indie rock, jazz, funk & soul, world music, ...). And he sings nice too! :)

And how do these two fit together? Well, they've been together for almost 13 years so there's obviously something there. They've always loved to travel, move around and keep an open mind about everything. What they've done recently is quit their pretty well established jobs and decided to travel some more... :) And...we are back!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To host all sorts of interesting travellers, show them some everyday life in our lovely little city and hear their stories.

From 2011-2013 we were hopping around the world meeting all sorts of wonderful couchsurfers, staying in their warm homes and doing some incredibly fun things with them. We hope to meet many, many more!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

We joined the CS community in July 2010 and been instantly overwhelmed with CS requests. Wow! Inviting complete strangers into our lives for a couple of days has been the most interesting and fun experience. And extremely positive since all of our guests up till now have been great.

Same goes with our many hosts we meet when travelling. So many interesting stories, but none of them bad!

Interests

As already mentioned Irena is into dancing, currently teaching as her work. She also does yoga and all sorts of other (mostly outdoor) activities. Too many really... :)

Igor? Well music of course! He spins records regularly in clubs across Ljubljana (he's into funk, breakbeat, hip-hop and dubstep) but at the same time follows other musical styles extensively, like jazz, rock, world music, etc. He also loves photography and underwater diving (PADI AOWD certificate).

Music, Movies, and Books

Yes, movies like Le scaphandre et le papillon, Vals Im Bashir, Persepolis, Un prophete, stuff by Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, Stanley Kubrick, Cohen bros and other great directors.

TV series? You bet. The Wire, Sopranos, The Office, Boardwalk Empire, Treme...

Books? Irena reads a bit of everything, while Igor has a soft spot for sci-fi and fantasy.

We've covered music already... Irena basically has to listen to all the stuff Igor listens to. :)
