About Me

I AM TRAVELING THIS SUMMER!! Will be occasionally in Sighisoara, if you really want to try your luck but I might also not be. Sorry!


I am only host genuine people and if you send me a copy+paste request you might definitely get a no.


If you enjoy a nice quiet evening, tea and deep conversations.
My favorite activities are sleeping, yoga, drawing, swimming, ballet, driving.
I don't eat meat, I respect life and I can not think of any reason as an excuse to kill any living being.
I respect and trust the ones who also respect and are trust worthy. I am sensitive and empathize with most living beings around me.

I am not pretentious. My dream is to be rich of love and kindness, rather than rich of money. People are more valuable than any amount of money. Life itself is more precious than any material object.

The more we communicate the more we grow - self-actualization <3
But also the more we listen the more we learn.
We need more love, and sharing smiles and kindness in this world.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


hosting, surfing, teaching, learning, as much as I can.


only povitive ones till now :)


life, friendships, arts (fine arts, yoga, ballet), antropology, nature, comic books, cats, music - it's hard to make a list - I could go on forever.

I know this is crappy but I want to host people who are genuinely interested in the people they would stay with so say something about veganism in your request please. Thank you for understanding.

There is a thing I have for foods. I love to cook but not so much for just myself - I always cook better when I cook for people :)
I enjoy giving back to the world as much as receiving from it <3
