About Me

current mission:
dreams, daring and exploring. rebuilding my trailer in estonia, starting painting and guitar once again, most of the time engaging for degrowth, climate justice and food sovereignty, always trying to find more balance within and without:)

about me:
hungry and foolish


The worst mistake that you can make is to think you're alive when really you're asleep in life's waiting room.
(waking life)

"[...] The idea is to remain in a state of constant departure while always arriving. It saves on introductions and goodbyes. The ride does not require explanation - just occupance. That's where you guys come in. It's like you come onto this planet with a crayon box. Now you may get the 8 pack, you may get the 16 pack but it's all in what you do with the crayons - the colors - that you're given. Don't worry about coloring within the lines or coloring outside the lines - I say color outside the lines, you know what I mean? Color all over the page; don't box me in! We're in motion to the ocean. We are not land locked, I'll tell you that.[...]" (waking life)

lessons learned: grow through the life, not go through the life

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

because of the people.

one of the best experiences i've ever had throughout the last 10 years. merci:)
p.s. despite the fact that CS is getting worse and worse, I still know that there are many old school CSers out there, don't give up... or i'll see you on bewelcome and elsewhere :)


exploring small side roads in all the new cities i get to, fleamarkets and chaotic vegetable markets, hitchhiking and intuitive trust between people; coffee & cigarettes (i 99% quit cigarettes now though;); painting, political art (adbusting&co), galleries and everything that can inspire me, dumpster diving, foodsharing,
smaller music and folk festivals! nature, hiking, walking with no destination, beautiful books and good poetry; flamenco, balkan, pizzica, (acid)jazz and folk; sometimes being alone; discovering - everything, everybody!
(day!)dreaming, photography, performances, theatre, swimming-surf-scuba, poetry slams, sambas & rhythms of resistance!
philosophy and politics, permaculture, urban gardening, degrowth, ecological economics, environmental justice & co!

...ALWAYS appreciate gooood and inspiring conversations with some (cheap?) red wine or cup of good tea! siiiii!
