------------------------------------------------------ IMPORTANT ------------------------------------------------------

Well, this part has always been the hardest from any kind of personal info. I'm an easy going person, who loves to meet new people and visit new places. Soon I'm going to change my entire life, so I just thought this might be a good place to find new friends in my brand new city of living which will be Porto. I love enjoying the life, so I hope I will continue it, even when work has got me to go to Portugal.


I've got some my favorite quotes which describes my philosophy in the best possible way:

"Love is a special word, and I use it only when I mean it. You say the word too much and it becomes cheap."
Ray Charles

"I can't feel anything right now because there's a few things that's just happened. I just have to lay back and think about it all."
Jimi Hendrix

"The story of life is quicker than the blink of an eye, the story of love is hello, goodbye."
Jimi Hendrix

"I think of myself as an intelligent, sensitive human being with the soul of a clown which always forces me to blow it at the most important moments."
Jim Morisson

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To be honest I don't do anything.. yet. I'm a freshman so as far as I know myself, I'd rather lurk at the beginning, and then, progressively I will just start to say some words, so the world will hear me.

[UPDATE] Wow, it's been a while.. ! I've met a lot of people so far, and can't wait even for more :) I'm hosting in 100% cause I don't have much time to travel, however even with some people over I feel like on holidays. It's so addictive.. :)


Just starting my experience as a CS host in Porto, Portugal :)

I love music. I play guitar and am trying to play some other instruments however my hopes and plans are much more bigger than real experiences. Besides that, I love to meet new people, to feel an atmosphere of a new place - I think it's something amazing, just sinking into it.. Additionaly, some sports would work as a charm so I jog, work out and do other stuff whenever I have an occassion.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music - any kind of - I love everything, especially when it's rock'n'roll based :) Just to give you some point of view about my taste - I love: Led Zeppelin, The White Stripes, Rage Against the Machine, Limp Bizkit, Massive Attack, The Doors, The Who, The Kinks, Foo Fighters, Nirvana, KoRn, Metallica, Alice in Chains, Faith no more, Peeping tom etc. etc.... :)

Movies - depends on the mood. From the "Tidelands", through "12 monkeys" and finishing with some stupid american comedies like "American Pie". There are no bad movies, people are just trying to be too serious about them.
