About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To make the most of my life and to become a better person every day.

ABOUT ME

I am really addicted to travelling. Every time I get a few days off, I hit the road and every time that I do not, I am busy planning my next trip, searching for places on the net, looking at maps, reading travel books or listening to stories about other people's trips. I love every phase of my trips. The dreaming about where to go phase, the starting to organise/I hope it will work out phase, the setting off with a bit of anxiety phase, the arriving and looking around for the first time phase, the going into details/discovering more phase, the midlife crisis of having to do more and see everything before going home phase, the sitting on the bus/train/plain for hours on the way home with happy contemplation of everything that has happened and how it has enriched my life phase and the falling into bed absolutely exhausted but with a contented smile on my face phase :-)
I hate to do nothing, so I am always doing something. :-)
I finished my BA studies 2 years ago and spent the last 2 years working, volunteering and travelling. Now it's back to the normal life and some more studying.
I was chosen for the EU's Erasmus Mundus Masters programme, so that means in the next 2 years, I will be studying in 3 different countries: Portugal, Scotland and Italy. My course is Cultural Studies with a Modern Languages background and a specialization in Travel Writing, which would be my dream job. Let's see how it goes ;-)

PHILOSOPHY

Everyone in the world has a lesson to teach you, it only depends on you which ones you want to hear. I would love to live long enough to hear them all! :-))))

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I am always enthousiastic about meeting new people from all around the world. Right now I am living quite a mobile life, so I am very rarely at home. Along the way I surf some coaches sometimes, I love participating in meetings or orgaising language exchange clubs. Sometimes I have happened to find a home where I can host, too.
If I am at home, I am happy to show people around, take them geocaching, go for a hike in the Buda mountains or anything that you are interested in.
Also, I spread the wonderful Hungarian cuisine all over the world :-)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Quite a lot now, for which I am extremely grateful and I really hope that one day I will be able to return all the kindness I have got in all parts of the world!!!

Interests

Travelling of course, languages, different cultures, psychology, hiking, writing, geocaching, ice-skating, dancing and creative things in general.

Music, Movies & Books

Depends on my mood, but I am not too choosy :-)
With music mainly pop, retro and world music.
As for books, the ones that make me think not only while I am reading them, but months after that, too. I love travel stories. My favourite one at the moment is The Geography of Bliss, written by Eric Weiner, because it is a travel journal that has a bit of sociology and anthropology in it, too, it combines the characteristics of self help books and a fun a novel.
I loved Sleeping Around too, by Brian Thacker, every Couchsurfer should read it ;-)

One Amazing Thing I've Done

All my trips have been amazing for one reason or another. During each journey, I find out something new about the world and learn something about myself, which I consider a really imporant experience. I love these moment of little revelations. I love feeling absolutely free, but at the same time still being responsible for how things go. On of the most amazing feeling in the world for me is getting of a bus/train/plane, looking around a completely unknown place and knowing that I can take this road or that or the other one and all mean a completely new, exciting experience!
But if I need to be really specific about amazing things that I have seen/done, here is a brief list:
-Doing a 2 day hike through the Dolomites
-Doing the Kepler Track
-Doing the Tongariro Crossing
-Watching surfers in Australia
-Pamukkale
-Freedom camping through Montenegro
-Winning a nationwide short story writing competition
-Being accepted for Erasmus Mundus
-having somebody tell me that I am their role model

Teach, Learn, Share

The world-famous Judit pie ;-) This is a dish that was created by me, but that has all the characteristics of Hungarian cooking and that I always make for my Couchsurfing hosts. So far, I have had very good feedback ;-)
