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 that tries to empower local communities by building libraries and donating them to the people who manage them after completion. 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 :))

In few words I am:
Chocolate and travel addict.
(Green) Tea Lover.
Springrolls and Dim Sum Lover.
I do: (like to)
Understand different points of view.
Get out of my box.
Test my comfort zone.
Push my comfort zone.
Find my comfort zone.
Get to know other cultures.
Wake up early.
Talk rather than party.
I also think you cannot say you don't like something if you don't try it and one should try everything at least once.
I am not a meat eater :)
I don't regret my decisions and take my full responsibility for them.
I don't (try not to) blame others for things. All my interactions started as my decision so I am taking the responsibility, right? :)
Everything that happens in any given moment is the best that could possibly happen to you.
I do like to talk. A lot.
I travel for the experience - the journey is the goal,
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.
I like to talk politics, culture, history... I am fascinated by how different people have different understanding for the same things and I think it is the root of many misunderstandings hence I try to understand how people unerstand things :)
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.
traveling, languages, rock climbing, culture, people, snowboard, learning new sports, squash, cooking, hiking,
hitchhiking, hitchhiking, hitchhikning did I mentioned hitchhiking??
and many, many others! :)

Music, Movies, and Books
Racing in the rain
Kundera - EVERY.single.BOOK.
Little Prince - does that need an explanation?
Jan Kerouac... just because

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