About Me


I'm very adventurous and spontaneous and I love love love traveling - it is my life's biggest passion. I am very outgoing and friendly, I love meeting new people and learning all about their culture. I also love having fun in the most unconventional ways so if you ever feel like having a beer in an old deserted kindergarten or need to chase your international bus back home with a cab down the highway of a foreign country because you missed it in the first place, I'm your person!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


For now I am only surfing as I am not living alone but hopefully one day I will get my own place where you will be more than welcome! Until then I am free to hang out so if anyone finds themselves in Sofia, London or Amsterdam, let me know and I will make sure you have a great experience!


Couchsurfed in Bucharest in the summer of 2014 for the first time, absolutely loved it.


Apart from traveling, music is my other huge passion and, living in a metropolitan city like London, I go to gigs all the time. I am a language freak and have started learning over 5 different languages which I wish I had more time to brush upon, because there are so many more I would want to learn! I also love reading books and in the tiny bit of free time I have left I love cuddling on my sofa with a cup of coffee and a great book - say existentialism or dystopia to me and you've got my attention! As a student in Neuroscience, however, my biggest fascination is the human brain. I have aspirations to become a neurosurgeon one day so I will hopefully be able to tell you all about the way it works. For some reason I have become really obsessed with Swedish culture, I fell in love with Stockholm when I visited it for the second time in the spring (I wasn't that fascinated in the winter when it was -20C though), so I am really motivated to learn Swedish now.

Teach, Learn, Share

I could teach you several languages, or at least a couple of sentences/words in each. I could teach you how to make Bulgarian and Italian dishes and how to make special cocktails and drinks from all over the world.
