About Me

First off, I know sometimes you just need a place to stay somewhere and I'm fine with that. I love meeting new people, but I understand that sometimes there is stuff to be done and little money with which to do it. Just be honest.


rock out like it's Sunday and Monday was a national holiday


I am a fast walker, fast talker, and fast eater. Most other things I enjoy doing slowly. Most of all I appreciate a good conversation - people always amaze me with the treasures they'd hide inside those heads of theirs.

I sometimes wish I'd write that in the third person to freak myself out a bit but then I decide who'd want to read that. Ask me.


Eternal nothingness is fine if you happen to be dressed for it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I host whenever I can, I surf whenever I have the time or need to. I occasionally go to meetings when I feel like I need to jump somewhere head first.


A heap of couches surfed, officially and unofficially through couchsurfing, as well as some wonderful, I've been told tours of Sofia and the surroundings.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Organized a freaking dance camp in sleepy St Andrews!

Teach, Learn, Share

Good swimmer and life-saver - can teach you swimming AND save you if anything goes bad. I love assigning summer readings to people.
Ready to learn anything at all.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can share some of the many anxious thoughts that run through my head. Food and drink obviously - I don't really think those were ever meant to be private. Pretty much anything else, if you ask nicely.
