About Me

I believe that the simple things in life will make you happy. Beautiful sunsets, beach, sun, music, good company & great conversations. And most importantly, having time on your hands to spend it with people you enjoy and doing what you love.

I absolutely love meeting new people, and trying out different stuff. From my other side, I'm a self-taught coder turned property manager. Trying to find a great work-life balance. Motto: "Live a life you don't need a holiday from".

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I simply love meeting new people. I find it exciting, and opens up your mind. I've couchsurfed and it was a great experience, and hosted a few myself too. Although I have some experience, I would love to use it even more!

Interests

I believe that the simple things in life will make you happy. Beautiful sunsets, beach, sun, great conversations, having time on your hands to spend it with people you enjoy and doing what you love.

I absolutely love meeting new people. I have a lot of interests, and constantly trying new stuff out. Very passionate about music and DJ techno/house as a hobby. Used to play the french-horn. I also dance salsa and bachata, and very passionate about rock-climbing.

Enjoy many different kinds of music, depends on my mood - from techno, house and electronica to classic, piano, indie & salsa. My least favourite music has to be rap and rmb. Life would be extremely different without music. Enjoy reading on various topics, especially psychology and philosophy. Love discovering abandoned places and hard-to-reach places.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Skiing a long slope in Bulgaria (Bansko). Pretty simple, but never imagined I'd be able to do it when seeing it from the bottom, or coming from a country with no form of snow at all. Walking 300km from the Camino de Santiago, Frances way. Want to return and do the rest of way.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Good conversation and good company. Information about my tiny island of Malta, especially off the beaten track. Good music if we share common interests, and a couple of salsa moves if you're up for it. Discussions about almost anything, and my curiosity in almost any subject.
