About Me

So, once upon a time..you were lost on my profile ahaha. If you can resonate with anything in here i'm pretty sure we'd get along well 😊😊

PHILOSOPHY🐑

Life is the most difficult exam. Most people fail because they try to copy each other not realising that everyone has a different question paper.

Imagine a huge, huge library where there is a book of every person stored.
You can go and choose one.
So you enter the room. Thousands, millions, billions. Thick, thin, old, new. Black and white, colourful.
Remember, you can only choose one.
Pick it.
Read it.
But are you actually breathing it? Is it captivating enough not to drop it back, next to the other ordinary looking pieces? Is the principal character taking all the steps you are hoping him to take to fulfill his dreams - even if it includes failures, camping in the ditch, singing goofy songs or spending Christmas alone?

Would you close the book before you finish it [because it's boring, no risk, no fun, no love, no challenges, no missed flights, no annoying taxi drivers nor even grammar mistakes?!]?

Would you absorb it until the very last page?
Thinking that "what a great life. What an amazing character. Crazy story."

Would you choose your own book?

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Music, Movies, and Books

Music
All the musicians from Iceland [so if you are from Iceland and gonna sing to me there's a high chance I like it :D]

Books
Sapiens - A Brief History of Humankind by Yuval Noah Harari [Probably the best 9 dollars I've ever spent. This book gave me so many answers and raised so many new questions. Yeah. I have no words. Maybe just three: give it a go.]

Just a Little Run Around the World by Rosie Swale-Pope [She is my hero. My best friend gave this book to me the day I started my adventure to Central Asia. I got so inspired that after finishing it I gave it to my friend I met on the road, who gave it to his friend... So maybe one day you'll be lucky and it's your turn!]

Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman

Siddhartha by Herman Hesse

Movies
The one I made in Kazakhstan and will be famous soon - you'll hear about it! :D

Favourite web page
wandersell.org [I think she is doing amazing stuff, check it out haha]
