Let's meet on the way :)

It is not an easy thing trying to summarize all the turbulent processes running through my brain. The more I think about the purposes of my decisions, the more I realize life is not really about the future and the whys. Rather it's about approaching the moment as near as possible. The strange nature of my mind traveling through time, while trying to be grounded, gives me enough stimulation to enjoy life. Currently, I am teaching myself to look at the world phenomenologically. I am curious to see what happens.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Attention!! Since I am learning french I would be more than glad to meet any french people visiting Ljubljana, even if it is just for coffee!

For now, I haven't hosted anyone yet, but I'm really looking forward to do it someday in the future when I have a space with a spare bed/couch. :) But, I have been meeting couchsurfers from all over the world to show them my Ljubljana and exchange worldviews.

I traveled to Germany, Netherlands, France and Italy after high school with three close friends and we had interesting experiences with our hosts. Also, I spent few nights couchsurfing in Vienna. Recently, I've been enjoying traveling by myself, having met really nice hosts in Paris.

I have a lot of awesome couchsurfing/travelling stories which will make you lol or/and cringe :P

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I beat an eating disorder and I still get overly amazed how my life transformed and fulfilled after that.

Teach, Learn, Share

We can discuss about the nature of humanity and the social aspect of it, phenomenology, people and their perks, relationships and determination, psychoanalysis, personal growth, the ontology of writing, perceiving life as a conglomerate of internal processes projecting outward etc etc. :)

And I can teach you the basics of portrait and interior photography, my language, show you a variety of latin swear words :)

I would like to practice french, so native french speakers are more than welcome.

Countries I’ve Visited

Austria, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Israel, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Monaco, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, United Kingdom, United States, Vatican City State
