Becoming the master of my own mind
I am a warm, welcoming and compassionate person. I love people. I love learning, conversing, philosophying, going crazy, travelling, debating... Sometimes I also like to put my reason aside and be subject to my emotions and see how far those would lead me. It led me to win the heart of the man that I love. You want something? Go and get it! :p

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Once with one of my friend we were at a party but it was not that good. So even if we were hundreds of kilometers from home lost in the mountains (Pyrenees), we decided at around 1 or 2 o'clock in the morning to find a place to sleep. We were thinking in a farm or a shelter and more we were walking more we started to imagine ourselves in a nice and cosy home, wrapped in warm covers. So finally, we tried our luck and knock to a guy's house where the lights were still on. He opened the door and welcomed us in his wonderful house that he mainly made himself, all in wood. He offered us tea and the next morning he cooked for us. It was amazing, you can guess how happy we were. He as well showed us a game that he created himself. It was pretty cool!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Got married to the most amazing individual the universe have the privilege to host. And I was never interested in getting married before.
Saw the Northern Lights in Iceland.
Survived camping 5 weeks during an archaeological dig. We stayed 3 miles away from the nearest village, no warm comfy bed, no hot shower, no signal, 4 weeks of rain (that was the real challenge), but so much fresh air, fun, and adventure. All those nights, sharing food and drink around a fire, singing along to our guitar players, and so much freedom. To spice it all, brown bears were roaming around our camp, which kept us close to each other. We had a good Romanian mountain man to keep us safe. :)
