About Me

Well... I am both an extrovert and an introvert (a new term for this is "ambivert") and -according to phycological tests- an INTJ. This means that I enjoy a good company as much as I enjoy being alone with myself. I have this really dire need of independence, freedom, education, creativity and constant movement (of body and mind) in my life, that really makes me walk on my toes all the time (even though sometimes it gets me really tired and I need to back off from everything in order to recharge my batteries).

I am in love with science and studying, but i really enjoy listening to music, painting, traveling, writing, photography, yoga and anything that has to do with nature. I tend to rationalize everything, including my emotions, never the less, I really do have strong feelings for my family and friends, as well as my profession.

I strongly believe in social volunteering and that "change" always occurs by individuals who decide to "make the difference". I am really focused on my career at the moment and hopefully, my plans will materialize. Never the less, who doesn't need some time off from a busy schedule?

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

My first registration on Couchsurfing was several years ago, around my 20's. I think it is a really great deal to meet people from all around the world, new cultures and ideas that can expand our point of views and make us understand that quite often the "fear of the unknown" is just an illusion. For this reason, when we are able, it is important to offer some help to people who love this big adventure called "travelling".

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Many experiences, but I can't really think of something that I would call "amazing".

Teach, Learn, Share

"Wise people know they know nothing. Smart people question everything they know. Stupid people seem to know everything."

Michael Angelo said "I am still learning" at age 73. As I grow up I consider myself more of a constant student, rather than a teacher. Never the less, whatever I have learned so far, I can discuss.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Except for my home, my frienship. Still, if hosting goes beyond the weekends (Friday, Saturday and Sunday), it is rather difficult for me to be of assistance because of my working schedule. Never the less, you never know, give it a shot, or at least we could have a coffee and chat. Have in mind that I have a dog and a cat at home (who love each other), both very friendly with strangers.
