I'd like to discover new places, interesting and lovely people, and have fun whenever and wherever the chances are given. My mission has been to find my path for the past years, and I was lucky enough to have met wonderful people and get to know myself better.
I'm an open-hearted and open-minded girl with a smile for everyone. I consider myself as a positive, lovely and helpful person with interests in almost everything in the world.
I used to have great plans and I always knew what to do (many times I just had no idea of the "Why" but I definitely knew the "What" and soon the "How"), but now that I am growing older, my confidence is shaking a bit and I need to find this inner strength again, so I am searching for experiences that can fuel the right beliefs of mine.
I believe life is a beautiful, challenging gift and we have to use it for good reasons, enjoy it and try to make the world a better place even if it's just by living happily in it. I truly enjoy a good laugh and appreciate genuine, honest individuals. Also, I am not very interested in polite conversations. I am relatively nice, but I have my opinion, quiestions and doubts, plus enough humour to make it easier to get, and I like people of the same kind.
Treat others the way you want to be treated, basically.
My philosophy is that we should care for those things that our heart tells us, and never for those things that we feel obliged to or we are told to feel or do. We are the ones who know what's the best for ourselves, and we need to enjoy our own lives not the others. So I believe we should work on living a life full of love and empathy, in a way that doesn't hurt others, what is more, helps them to be happier and feel better.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
On my ways everywhere I tell my friends and people I meet about CS, I kind of feel like a CS-priest :), and though for the first time most of them are kind of suspicious and find it funny or weird, after telling them more about it, almost all of them say: "eeer, yeah, it might be actually a good idea".
NOTE: CS is still not a dating site, and personally I'm definitely NOT searching for any adventure like that, so please respect this - thank you in advance!
Also, needless to say, CS (and me) is not a free hotel service. It is okay if you don't feel like socializing or going out or whatever, but let me know in advance what to expect. You'll be tired after a long journey and probably only want a nice shower when you arrive? Fine, I'll make you a cup of tea and you can go to bed whenever you want to. You want to see the city and have a party? Let me know so I can decide if I am down for it or not. Plus, when you are writing me a request, please greet me with a "Hello, Lilll" with as many L-s as you want :), so I will know that you've read through my profile! You'll have a much bigger chance then, seriously. I just turn down all the non-personal ones. CS is for making friends and get to know people, and if you don't put time in requests, you won't get much on the other side either.
Woohooo! I've just collected a lot, and it's been totally amazing so far! :)
I started my CS career as a host, and my first time was a very exciting one, so I kept doing it, although my city is not that popular as bigger ones can be. :)
Two years after my registration, my boyfriend and I planned a round-trip through Serbia and Bulgaria to Turkey and then back through Greece, and it was looooads of fun, and we did CS for 3 weeks constantly! Thank you again, guys, you were awesome! :)
Then I went to work to the USA, and after my contract ended, I went on a US-trip on my own, and I met tons of lovely CS folks on my way! :) I even participated on my fist CouchCrash in Chicago, it was like a surreal dream :D.
We also used CS in Bosnia, then back to Turkey and Cyprus, then in Poland, I went to France too, and I hope to grow old using it. :)
I have hosted guests from France (Yves), Estonia (Riho and Lille), Germany (Luca), UK (Peter), Ukraine (Tatiana and Slava) and Australia (Graham), and I should have written a list of the exact time and everything as many of you do, but my guests rather live in my memories than in notes. :)
I'd preferably say I like feelings or moods rather than things - whether it's a journey you've been waiting for so long, new feelings that come across, new tastes when you eat something different, time pausing when you read a great book, the moment when you stop breathing when you see a beautiful sight, the warmth and instant happiness of a hug, the mood when you listen to your fave music, the feeling when you dance, and so on, but the most impressing is the (human) nature.
Coming down to cases, let me list some things I love:
- people - as sources of fun, originality and knowledge
- books - same as above if you read them, and I'm pretty much into writing as well (I have two smallies already, and planning on writing one for kids now)
- learning - there's no need to explain this one.
- music - because it makes life smooth and helps you out many times
- travelling - something I really enjoy doing and exactly what I'd like to do in the rest of my life. I just need to get out my comfort zone time to time - I guess some of you know very well what I mean. :)
- dance, yoga - activities that make you feel alive and happy, let you be yourself and forget the whole world in a way that you're in the biggest harmony with it
- languages - speaking different languages is a priceless value and opportunity and I definitely want to learn as much as I just can. Now Russian is my first goal, then German and Spanish, can't wait!
- cooking and baking, because it's a magic how you can create marvellous things out of some simple ingredients and when you succeeded, by sharing it you make other people happy in a way! I'm eager for new recipes, methods and tastes, and I'm ready to cook/bake something Hungarian for you as well!
- I don't like to party hard - although sometimes I'm in the mood (which means I'm not totally tired by night) and I love to dance my shoes off, normally I prefer fun people's company and interesting conversations without all the mess about clubs. :)
Music, Movies, and Books
My favourite films are mostly comedies, dramas, romantic stuff, and others, but I am not keen on bloody horrors and the "Indiana Jones-style" :) Or...well, that is the past. After watching series and movies with my ex-boyfriend, walkers and meth producers jumped into my life... though I never really got used to them. :D
On my very best of list Forrest Gump has got the first place, and I just won't explain why. :)
I also love Snatch, The Green Mile, Shrek, Ice Age, Dirty dancing, 300, The Lord of the Rings-trilogy (also loved the books), and a lot of other ones. (Oh, God, this is an old list, I gotta update it)
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I'm still working on it...
What I Can Share with Hosts
I can share my thoughts, experience, questions, doubts, ideas (if you're interested, but you don't have to be).
But I can also share silence. Meals. A laugh. A bottle of wine.
