Writing my PHD Thesis
I'm nice, friendly...I'think..:-P
I'm phd candidate at Dublin city University (Ireland, as you may guess) but now I am based in Tbilisi, where I am doing some field research.
I love to travel (what an original statement and meet friends from all over the world.. I have been living in Ireland (well, i came back here, but it is a long/short story) and in the US, that gave me the chance to understend what means living abroad. I consider challenging, and at same time amazing, learning a new language, understanding new cultures (it is so interesting to go to another country, thinking that it is almost the same of your own, and then starting to notice and understand small and big differences) and having to start a new life from scratch. I like talking to foreign people, to discover how they live and think. From these conversations I have learned many things: from how money was smuggled in Czech Republic during communism to how people live in Palestinian rural villages. Of course, there are much much more the things that I still ignore: that makes me wishing of keeping on travelling and meeting people.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
In this moment I cannot host. Anyway, I can show around people . I don't know exactly how many free time I would have:it is a factor which changes time by time. Anyway, if I have enough free time I will be happy to show my guest around and to propose something to do together. If I'm too busy I'll be glad to have a meal together, a glass of wine and some nice talk.
I like also meeting travellers for a coffee or a drink together and joining CS local meetings.
I've surfed around Europe
I've already traveled with interail and other adventurous travels around Europe..

Got to know, randomly, amazing couchserfers
I love hiking and walking in the beautiful Irish nature! And of course, landing to a pub afterwards!
I'm really interested in voluntering abroad. I've taken parts in international working camps (Palestine and Scotland), cultural exchanges (Hungary and Turkey) and training camps (Germany and Greece). I consider them a way to learn something new, test myself and meet up new people. I don't know how, in this kind of camps there are all many nice people and some of them are really inspiring.
I'm interested in worldwide events and culture (I would not study international relations otherwise).
Eventually, I think that what I'm interested most in life are people: we are the most sociable animal in the world. I always feel enriched after some interaction, of any kind, with other human beings.

Teach, Learn, Share
mmmmmm... Everything I have or I know I'll be happy to share with everyone..
I would like to learn from everyone..new dishes to cook, new words from foreign languges, and different styles of life..
i'm not scared by differences..that is the word that anyone can understand (but the body language and the mime can help us as well as they are really funny), food that I have never eaten, but I'm ready to discover the different ideas about spending an evening...
I'm ready to show my life and enter into somebody else's one..
