About Me

I am a versatile person with various passions, knowledges and ambitions. I value experiences more than material possessions and I'm always looking for new challenges to keep life interesting. I hate routine and prefer a good dose of randomness every day. I don't make snap decisions about people or situations. I always appreciate a good conversation about anything with interesting and intelligent people. I can easily adapt to people and situations and can usually get on with everyone.

My favorite movie makers are those whose names start with letter "K" :) Kubrik, Kieslowski, Kim Ki-duk, Kurosawa, Kaurismaki, Kusturika... plus: Tarantino, Von Trier, Herzog, Medem, Forman.. etc :)
Writers: Dostoevsky, Palahniuk, Kazantzakis, Sagan

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Rode a hot air balloon at sunrise in one of the most magical places in the world - Luxor, Egypt.

I was lucky enough to get tickets and attended to 2014's Glastonbury Festival - which is in my opinion (and many others') the greatest festival in the world

Rode a motorbike in Saigon in rush hour

Snorkel the amazing bio-luminescent plankton in southern Thailand

Explored the amazing temples of Angkor in Cambodia

Teach, Learn, Share

I know a few things about the Romanian history and culture and I look forward to the opportunity to share that.

I can teach about digital photography, web technologies and other geeky stuff, and of course Romanian language.

I love to engage in conversations and debate ideas of science, politics, economics, culture, environment, philosophy and pretty much anything interesting.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Travel discoveries, cultural experiences, new ideas, and pretty much anything else worth sharing.

Countries I’ve Visited

Austria, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Cambodia, Croatia, Egypt, France, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Malta, Montenegro, Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Singapore, Spain, Thailand, Turkey, United Kingdom, Vatican City State, Viet Nam
