About Me

I am a born traveller. I have been to every part of the World, from China to Canada, from Peru to Kuwait. I am interested in how people live, feel and shape their life. As a market researcher I want to understand why people do what they do and how that fits into the global picture. I love talking to people. I also love cooking, so if you let me in your kitchen you can be sure I will prepare a great dinner , no matter what's in your fridge!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I prefer staying with people to staying in hotels. Although I am 'old' in terms of age I don't feel like that. So I don't behave like that either!
I love meeting people, offer hospitality - maybe I can host travellers from around the world. I am really busy working and travelling myself, so forgive me if I am not available all the time.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: too many. From classical to contemporary (all the B's: Bach, Brahms, Bartók, and on... Chopin, Mozart, Nyman, Reich etc.) to World music (North African, Latin, Indian) Coldplay, Beatles, Cohen, some jazz too.

movies: absolute favourite is Antonioni's Blowing Up. It's the symbol of what I do all my life: look at things closely and explore the meaning. I love Wajda and the Czech movies in general. Last Tango in Paris. Melancholy.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Delivered my two great daughters, who are adult by now and making me a grandma! I don't think I have done amazing things. I have done lots of things from writing a book to teaching dozens of clients and researchers doing qualitative market research, have cooked amazing meals... but these are just everyday stuff, anyone can do. Okay, maybe one thing: for a private festival I baked 15 different breads, over one day. That was tough!

Teach, Learn, Share

anything about qualitative market Research, if anyone interested
I can teach cooking and baking - you can watch me do it for you!
I am an expert of spices and how to combine them best.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Any ideas. Maybe share my apartment in Budapest one time?
