About Me

This awkward section where you are supposed to say things about yourself but nothing seems really worthy. Been enjoying my days recently - always keeping my eyes and ears open to the world to keep proving myself that "shitty" is just a matter of perspective. There's always something beautiful about the ugly and vice versa.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

CURRENTLY ON THE ROAD AND WITH NO DECENT HOME WHATSOEVER, BUT WILL DEFINITELY OPEN MY HOME, HEART AND FRIDGE TO TRAVELERS ONCE I SETTLE SOMEWHERE IN RIGA.

As shown by my profile, been hosting people for the past 5 years. Awesome experience with awesome people. Yup, you have been wonderful, guys.

Interests

Culture, consumption of foods and beverages, running (wannabe), reading (not as much as I should) and basically looking out for things that tell me something new about what it's like to be a human - many times this involves ordering a drink at the shadiest-creepiest place ever and seeing what happens next. Also, I have obtained very basic guitar skills which means exactly nothing.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Got stuck in a hundred years old elevator at 4 am with my mates. Met police, house owner and elevator sevice at the same time.

Working in the middle of an Israeli dessert with military aircraft flying above our heads, watching the planes merge into shiny milky way every night. Not really amazing, but unforgettable experience, though.

MONGOLIA!!!

What I Can Share with Hosts

1) Meals - never had any problem with paying for food or even cooking something (if you are ready to risk) - for some reason you basterds are always so kind and almost never let me do this :/

2) STORIES! Low-budget adventures, opinions on philosophy, cinema, world and people - I love discussing stuff that makes the brain work.
