Settling down in Australia!
* *All the info about my couch is not updated: It is about when I was living in my country of origin but I'm not there any more but settling down in Australia. Not living in my own house yet, I can't host. However, I would be glad to meet with locals and travellers**
I've got a much more relevant education by travelling around the world than by being at the University. I believe that meeting people from different cultures give us the big picture and makes us more courageous, free and tolerant. This is why I love CS.
-If you have a problem/regret without solution, donât think about it.
-Enjoy and value good things that you do have.
