About Me

CURRENT MISSION

If you can dream it you can do it .. and I'm doing it...

I do not feel grown up, but I do things I want to do when I grow up. I guess I'm lucky :)

I started an organization tha tries to empower local communities by buiding libraries and donating them to the people who take full charg of them. It is fully volunteering and non profit organization/movement/charity or whatever you like to call it. You can check it out on the links bellow or talk to me why I do not like it to be called charity or to use the word volunteer :))

Anyways...
In few words I am 101% Optimist, chocolate and travel addict, freedom fighter, dream follower and hitchhiker. Spontaneous.

Vegetarian.

I also think one should try EVERYTHING at least once, and therefore you won't hear NO from me, regarding any new experience, thing or food I might try...

I don't regret my decisions.

I wanna save what there is to save from our lovely planet, help to those who need our help and with the remaining patience I want to try and let people on the other (safe) side know what is happening around them. Basically I am trying to bridge the gap of misunderstanding and misconceptions we have. I used to try hard to convince people about their misunderstanding and wrong doings but I learnt that change must come from within and the best way is to inspire people not with your words but actions.
I do like to talk though. A lot.

I travel for the experience the journey is the goal, I want to learn new languages, understand people and their traditions, societies and run away from our (sometimes) closeminded European world. I'm usually camping, hitchhiking or staying with locals. No hotels, no tours, no private cars.

I have one plan - don't plan anything.

Just go, walk, run and move as everything around does.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I host whenever I can (and whenever I stay longer than few day on one place) and I use it when I travel :))
I love meeting locals but also expats and people living in foreign countries to see the way they see the country they live in.

World is a jigsaw for me and every new life encounter is another piece of that puzzle. Im trying to get more pieces to ge under the tip of the iceberg.

Interests

traveling, languages, rock climbing, culture, people, snowboard, learning new sports, squash, cooking, hiking,

hitchhiking, hitchhiking, hitchhikning did I mentioned hitchhiking??

Music, Movies, and Books

Racing in the rain - one of the ones I read recently. For unknown reasons I just fell in love with that book

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Teach, Learn, Share

Pay it forward :)

Listen and respect. Don't take things for granted. Try to see things from the other point of view before making a judgement.
