Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I simply participate! :)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Well, haven't had many, but they were all cool. This is a spectacular project indeed.

Interests

Engaging in educational, environmental, and generally developmental project for deprived communities.
Music. Anything that's new to me almost. Food (delicious, healthy, vegan) - Making, baking, and eating. Yoga (teaching and practising).Biking. Hiking. Swimming. Sports (just doing, not watching). Nature. Art and crafts, especially ceramics, drawing, and painting (making, and also seeing, and getting inspired by). Farming (organically mostly) Writing. Reading. Anything that can be done in the beach area, or any other natural water source (there's a theory that says that I am a biological mistake, and I am actually one big hydrophilic molecule in the shape of a human body).

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Hmm. I've seen people in Nepal, that live in a crummy mud house, a full five to ten members family in one room, no technology, Internet, television, stove oven, bathroom or anything that is considered basic in the modernized cointries of the west; and I think they might have been the happiest people I've ever seen. It can perhaps seem as if I am romentisizimg it, they ahad problem and difficulties, no doubt, but yet, they always seemed to be the least worried about them, and as if they have everything they ever wanted/needed. That was inspiring.

Countries I've Visited
