About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Experience all the awesomeness. Meet the urban explorers from all world.

ABOUT ME

XS human being with XL curiosity, hobbies and smile. :)
I really enjoy making new communications because i like to learn new things and the process of communication itself - in era of Facebook , talking face-to-face always makes the day better. :) In daily life i try to find anything extraordinary or enjoy everything as it is. I also like to learn new things, sometimes i'm getting overly excited about something for weeks :D

Sometimes i am too busy person - full time student and worker. But that doesn't keep me aware from my beloved hobbies,friends and family.

PHILOSOPHY

Studying and working doesn't make what you are, but your hobbies, special interests. ;)
***
...Without leaps of imagination or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all is a form of planning...

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

At the moment i can't host
but i'd love to hang out! :)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Warm and sunny memories :)

Interests

Most of my interests are related with outdoor activities!

Urban exploring (urban exploration) is my main hobby for about 6 years. I'm excited about visiting abandoned places and rooftops...derelict places.

Geocaching is also on my "yay, let's do it list" but since i don't have a proper GPS device, i'm not doing it very often. Still,i'm using GC.com a lot, it's a great way how to explore places!

Photography - since i don't have digital camera anymore, the process of taking photos with film camera has become one of my favorite activities. Sometimes i go for photo hunting, without any particular reason.

Also,i'm very into playing board games (Dixit,Saboteur,Ghost stories,Alias and so on) - well mostly i like party games but sometimes i prefer hardcore thinking ones as well. I also create my own board game versions. :)

Hitchhiking - that's my favorite way to move around!

Beer!It's a huge field of discoveries, i know small breweries in Latvia and where to get really tasty beer.

Street art. Although i'm not doing it myself, i'm just very interested in it. Especially if there's a social or philosophical message.

What else?Poetry,DIY stuff,cats, seeking soundscapes(sometimes i record something), cycling - enjoy it a lot.

Long conversations!I prefer to listen, though.

& etc, all that makes our world horizon wider.

Music, Movies & Books

Music - post-rock,ambient,IDM,field recordings, symphonic, liquid/deep/atmospheric drum and bass.

I try to avoid hollywood kind of movies.
Anyway, there's an IMDB list.

Books are my food for soul. Mostly i read Scandinavian and Japanese author books. There are no specific favorites, usually i like to read about fucked up people lives,grumpy staff.
