About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To become a good friend of YOURS & to complete El Camino de Santiago (Saint James Way: 760 km) ON FOOT - hell YES! :D

ABOUT ME

...the power of languages (especially that of the English language) always makes me amazed....Have you realized that the more languages you speak, the more open the world gets?? It enables you to communicate with people from different cultures and this is what really counts - the possiblity to actually become good friends!! I always wonder how much "poorer" i would be if i spoke only Hungarian...

My friends are very important to me and i always try to stay in contact with them. What i don't like is when people say 'let's keep in touch' just out of courtesy or habit then they just disappear completely so please don't say it unless you really mean it!

All right, i realize that what i've written about myself so far makes me seem a bit too serious...compared to what i really am :-)))...anyway, some more info about me:
- am definitely passionate about travelling (prefer visiting different cities in the same country to visiting only capitals)
- when i'm travelling by car/bus/train to some new places i always try to keep myself awake no matter how tired i am so that i wouldn't miss anything :-)))
- i collect postcards - you are more than welcome to contribute!!!! :-P
- during traveling i love getting up with the sun, hit the city and just walk randomly without using maps :-)) (so don't you ever ask me about how to get to a certain spot - i don't GO to places, i just accidently end up there :-)))
what i also love: volunteering (currently i'm a voluntary translator for greenpeace), free hugging, LAUGHING :-)))))), TRYing to cook with other lousy cooks :-)))), listening to folk music of the country i'm visiting, watching Jeff Dunham videos on youtube :-)))) (my favourite character is Peanut :-))...okey, describing myself is just taking forever :-))) so let's just meet and you can find out more about me!

PHILOSOPHY

Smile at the world and the world smiles back!

Every minute that you spend upset is a minute of happiness that you'll never get back!

And most importantly:

"... I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, and every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight..." Martin Luther King
