About Me


Let the inner fire burn and be the driving force


I like people. It is also the meaning of my name. I like to see the differences and similarities and those special little things. Although it is my name and I like people I also appreciate some alone time.

I love swimming against the current. And swimming in a pool also.I like very long walks in a forest or on a beach. Being in the nature makes me feel very grounded. As well as yoga, dancing and just moving.

I had amazing experiences with dance, where I went to a state of peace, but the one I could do things out of. It also helped me to step back and see people more clearly, without my projections and judgement.

Beauty and Honesty are important for me. Appreciating beauty of people, colors, nature, feelings, events, anything. Being honest about how I feel, what I think and what I have to say to another person.

I am curious about spiritual things, ideas, movement practices.

When I originally wrote this it was more for fun.
But as the time shows it works well for me.

My personal philosophy is like this, trusting your feeling and intuition is the best way to go. Doing what feels good, what feels right, following the gut feeling.

I feel when people call me weird that they just don't see a wider picture. We are all "weird" for each other because we are different, because we are individuals.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have hosted. Had great experience.
I have surfed Aug-Sept 2009. And November now.
And occasional annoying dating spam.


It was the best trip I have ever had. It was an eye-opening experience full of joy, breathtaking moments, wonderful people, beautiful sceneries and lots of walking

I have met people on CS, who are very dear to me now. I never knew that world has so many warm, caring,good, full of life and light people. I have also never expected CS experience to be so incredible.

My experience with couchurfing is also like a discovery of trust. The trust that people give to each other without knowing one another.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Rolled on the floor with laughter!
Stayed up till early morning drawing and painting.
