Think of me as a strange adrenaline junkie/bookworm/head-in-the-clouds artist combo with the occasional streak of sanity thrown in for kicks. :)
Okay, so I'm actually a pretty chill guy, and I usually end up sitting in the hammock and swapping travel stories. That said, I'm totally up for a party, if that's your thing!
You can find me almost anywhere, but I'm drawn to adventure in whatever form it takes. The main thing you need to know about me is that I write books and stories about anything I can think of, but they usually end up involving some sort of overly intricate storyworld and a lot of explosions and grand heists.
And, of course, I wouldn't be on Couchsurfing if I didn't like exploring and trying new things!
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I am globetrotting in search of adventure and good places to write. I've worked at three hostels, wasted time in sunny Mexican cities, and gotten a TEFL certificate that's sort of useless to me without a degree. Also, that thing about growing up in Hungary was from a long time ago so no, I don't speak the language (unfortunately).
I love Couchsurfing because of the community, and you can’t beat fellow travelers for tips and stories! I have a few of those myself, though not nearly as many as you probably have. :)

Music, Movies, and Books
Music: rock/metal, dubstep, acoustic guitar, etc. I can enjoy almost anything (except country). I cannot confirm or deny the fact that I may or may not create really long and vaguely cohesive playlists on Spotify.
Movies: Lord of the Rings trilogy. Dark knight trilogy. Starwars. Various and sundry.
TV: Stranger Things. Black Mirror. La Casa de Papel. The Blacklist. Firefly.
Books: Ender's Game. LOTR. Anything written by Brandon Sanderson. Les Miserables. Crime and Punishment. Game of Thrones. Gentleman Bastards. Harry Potter. Various Stephen King books. If it's a fantasy book that came out within the last two decades, chances are I've read/heard of it.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I've written a book!
Never mind, I'm still on the 6th draft...
I can tell you a few things I've epic-ly failed at though:
Keeping track of my money
Regulating my reading addiction
Knowing what in the world I'm doing
Teach, Learn, Share
Um... I can show people what not to do, learn not to do it, and share the stories of me doing the thing I shouldn't have done. Does that count?
What I Can Share with Hosts
Stories. A lot of stories.
I'm a TEFL certified English teacher, so I can help you with your English, if desired.
I'd love to help around the house, if there's anything that needs doing. :)
Depending on when I reach you I might be able to do a handstand, though I wouldn't bet on it.
