About Me

I am just like any other guy that likes to have fun, going out with the friends after a day of full hard work or stay at home with them playing silly games, that likes to go out in the nature or explore a new city and that never says no too a new experience and too new friends, that likes to find the differences and similarities between cultures and what make us different and equals as individuals.


The world is a small village.
