About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To relate to deepest inner myself, to discover the world, to understand how things are, to meet great people on the way.

ABOUT ME

I am an open-minded, well educated and fun to be around person, who prefers healthy style of life and enjoys meeting people all over the world. It is a great pleasure to meet people from other cultures and from different backgrounds to share the experiences. I spend a lot of my spare time traveling, exploring the beauty of this world, enjoying nature and architecture. I also love hiking, scuba diving, biking and salsa. I am also interested in esoteric, world mysteries and philosophy, love to have long soul touching talks. :)
I quit my job in finance in April 2015 and now I am travelling in the Southern Europe for 4 months. So far I have visited Barcelona, Ibiza, Formentera, Cordoba, Granada, Malaga, Ronda, Cadiz and Marseille. I also did a TEFL course (Teaching English as a Foreign language) in Seville and stayed in a great Spanish family there for a month. I will be traveling in Provence for a week and then might go to Monaco, Nice, Vask country and do Santiago trail before starting an intense course of Spanish at the University of Menandez Palayo in Santander in August. I am thinking of going to Cinque Terre in September.

PHILOSOPHY

Everything happens for a reason.
Things turn out best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I have been lucky to do so many amazing things and see lots of fantastic places and have great adventures. My favorite experiences: jumping with the parachute over Saint Petersburg, flying hot air balloons over savanna in Kenya and over city of Helsinki, visiting tribes in Kenya, having a 4 days Inca trail hike to Machu Picchu, staying overnight by the iceberg lake in Iceland, wondering around the Galapagos islands and adoring all their unique species, walking in the Amazonian forest on the Marajo Island and escaping from criminals in Tijuca forest in Brazil, as well as having communication with miko-monkeys on Pao de Acucar in Rio, staying in a Buddhist monastery in Japan, walking along the river Ganges in the city of burning and learning Varanasi, admiring Petra, understanding the complicated interrelations between religions in Jerusalem, passing through breathtaking landscapes of Norway and the famous Geirangerfjord, riding reindeers, huskies and snowmobiles in the middle of nowhere in Lapland and jumping into the lake in -27 outside after the Finnish sauna, flying in the wind tunnel in Latvia, admiring white hot wideness of Salar de Uyuni and staying over in a hotel totally made of salt, dancing salsa in different countries, watching frogs in Costa Rica, swiming with dolfins in Thailand and New Zealand, seeing penguins in Antarctica, hiking in Patagonia and Tongariro crossing in NZ, diving on the Great Barrier Reef, hang gliding and many many more. Over all of that - having the most wonderful experiences with people in all places I have ever been and much more.
