About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Hmm. Reducing my contribution to the overall garbage and bullshit human kind produces.

PHILOSOPHY

I feel it's a bit pretentious to try and give one coherent philosophy to life, but in general, I can say that I always strive to make better, myself, and my environment; always striving for harmony, between me and myself, my social and political environment, and my physical environment.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've had really incredible CS experiences, some where simple and fun, some where somewhat life changing, some felt like a trip to a parallel universe, but all and all this is a spectacular project.

Interests

Making my immediate spocio-political environment more egalitarian, and with equal access to all. 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 countries 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 had problems 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.
