About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Be free and get from life as much as possible!

ABOUT ME

I'm short, because I'm not tall haha :) a good sense of humour can solve many problems, right? I'm a positive person, curious and sociable who can't live without adventures and traveling. I think my life would be over without meeting people and exploring new places. I believe I'm always active and full of energy to do hundreds of things. Be optimistic and enjoy every single day is my rule number 1! I never give up and try to do as much as I can in my life. Time is limited and I value every single moment!! To be more specific what I'm doing in my life, I will try to put it in a few lines.. I did a Bachelor degree in Political Science in my home country Lithuania and then I decided to enjoy a couple of gap years before starting postgraduate studies... I went to Spain for crazy summer seasons and extra cash for travelling (actually I spent 6 summer seasons in Spain during and after my undergraduate studies), I went to Africa to volunteer where I spent 6 months. This was one of the best choices in my life. I adore every single moment spent in Uganda and everywhere else I traveled after. I could talk to hours about this experience, so I'd better stop here about it. After Africa, a circle of seasonal jobs in Spain, Switzerland and further travelling continued until I decided to move forward with my studies. So I ended up in the UK doing a master degree in Diplomacy and Foreign Policy. However, my itchy feet don't let me stay for long here and I'm looking forward for new trips and adventures.

PHILOSOPHY

"The man who makes no mistakes does not usually make anything." - William Connor Magee

When life gives you lemons make lemonade!

Life is too short to waste it of doing nothing or only dreaming about the better future. Never leave things for tomorrow and get from life as much as possible. You have only one chance, take it now!! Believe in yourself and you will get from life everything you want! We don't live in the dream world, we live in the reality, so not only dream but act! Think, is too optimistic? No way, it's realistic, just believe in yourself and never give up!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Well, I surf more than I host, he he he, but it's like that, when I started couch surfing I was a student and seldom had an opportunity to host at my place. Hope one day my own apartment doors will be widely opened and everybody will be warmly welcome here.. Anyway, now I try to meet people, to help them in my city as much as I can. What's more what I do and I like it a lot is to spreed CS's idea more and more, tell, explain, share ideas with people about CouchSurfing. Let's make people know about CS's spirit! ;)
