About Me

CURRENT MISSION

There are a few things, but at the moment to learn Dutch :)

ABOUT ME

I like suprises but I don't like being scared.
I like rain but I don't like cold.
I love cheese but I reject mushroom.
I like hitch-hiking but I don't like hiking.
I love being so busy that I only go home to sleep but I also like staying at home and being lazy.
I love vegetarian food but I also eat meet.
I like zodiac but I don't catagorize people.
I prefer beer in the summer, wine in the winter.
I prefer postcards than e-mails.
I prefer cycling than walking.
I prefer art cinema than watch the movie at home.
I prefer local bars than too touristic spots.
I like cold coffee but also the warm one.
I prefer burned toasts than normal one.
I prefer walking on the grass barefoot than in shoes.
I prefer peaceful cemeteries than crowded touristic areas.

PHILOSOPHY

Interests

people. movies, books, contemporary theatre, video-editing, languages, listening musics and concerts, playing in djembe, modern art museums, gastronomy, travelling and travelling stories

I started to collect magnets on my fridge, so I would be very happy if you bring me one from your country/city/town... :)

People I especially enjoy:
People who can share but also able to listen.
People who naturally smile or laugh a lot, and they can laugh even at themselves.
People with who I can enjoy sometimes the silence too without feeling ourselves uncomfortable because of those speechless minutes. Silence speaks all languages.

Teach, Learn, Share

Don’t tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass!

Anyway, I can teach you hungarian language (offically I should be a teacher of hungarian...),at least I can try :) It's one of the most difficult language in the world so teaching is not easy to do also.

I'd like to know at least some sentences in different languages...I would be more than happy if you would teach me a song! :)
