About Me


Traveling around Europe and settling down somewhere!


I'm a traveler-adventurer, engineer... I am about to get used to not being a student. I like to explore new places, walk about a lot, try all the street food and talk to locals and fellow travelers. I'm generally rather passionate about the things I do.


The best thing about any trip is the people.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I travel when I can, also host in Budapest.


I stayed at many hosts, met a ton of people who didn't host me but showed me around, been to CS meetings in Budapest, hosted in Budapest.


I love cars, motorcycles, snowboarding, want to start a business eventually, and can't stop reading about decision theory and behavioral economics. And let me say how I love motorcycles once more.

Music, Movies, and Books

Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones, Star Wars - books and movies, loved them both. Recently got addicted to House of Cards. I'm also in love with every movie Tarantino ever made.
Some books I've really enjoyed: Taleb's Antifragile and Gilbert's Stumbling on Happiness
I enjoy Iron Maiden, AC/DC, Metallica.. and the works of Howard Shore for background music when I work, and also recently I noticed myself listening to dance and party music just for itself.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Hitchhiked a lorry with a broken scooter, got escorted off of the autobahn by the police pushing the bike with no lights at midnight… and walked away with no fine.

In 2015, I crossed Eurasia on train, rode a shitty old Honda Win from Hanoi to Saigon, hitchhiked over to Singapore, took a 3 day ferry over to Kalimantan and hitched some more. :))

Teach, Learn, Share

Will teach basic university level mathematics for a free meal. :D Seriously though, I'm in my fourth year at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics, and I remember the stuff I learned quite well. I'm also a self educated gadget tinkerer, so I can probably fix your broken iPhone, no free meal required. ;)

What I Can Share with Hosts

I learned how to prepare Hungarian goulash soup and Indonesian nasi goreng! :))
