About Me



A guy who likes to make jokes and have a good time. Enjoying life and doing things that I like. Friendly, honest, easy going and spontaneous - always up for last minute adventures. Trying to figure out the balance between my inner hippie and my inner capitalist.

I'm unfortunately allergic to cats.

You can check out my FB page, where I have written about my hitch-hiking journey - www.facebook.com/thumberkarlis


Smile and the world will smile back to you.
Be positive!
Balance in life is super important.
I prefer honesty over politness.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Have met a lot of great couch-owners and slept on their couches. Have been to some parties and meetings. Have also hosted a lot of amazing people, who brought travelling vibes directly in my house. Now have a flat, where to welcome travellers in Riga!


Totally positive, looking forward for my next CS experiences :)
