About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Discover the US state-by-state by car

ABOUT ME

When walking, I prefer looking around to watching my step. This is how I see the most beauty in the world around me - and also the secret of stumbling a lot.

I am very interested in other cultures, ways of thinking, languages, stories of life. I enjoy sharing, giving and ways to learn from each other. I like good talks, good food, good wines, good ideas, good music, good sports.

PHILOSOPHY

Better regret what you did than what you didn't do

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

If anyone asks me where they can easily get to know foreign people, where they can easily practice a language, how they can get involved in cool multicultural events, I always say: go try CS.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

We do couchsurfing for about 6 years and enjoy it a lot. We have been hosting several nice people already, and also were couchsurfers ourselves a couple of times.

Interests

using skills to help others, music, guitar, piano, backpacker trips, foreign cultures and languages, teamwork/team building, drawing, writing, ergonomy, photography, tennis, martial arts, poker, social psychology, self-management, such initiatives as http://www.kiva.org

Music, Movies & Books

Movies: The Illusionist, American Beauty, Into The Wild, Frida, Viven, State Buoni Se Potete, The Notebook, Silver Linings Playbook, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

Tv shows: Game of Thrones, Five Mile Creek, Las Vegas, 24, CSI:NY

Music: Pretty much anything that catches me. I like it if it has some sort of melody...doesn't go with every music today! I have the best time listening to unplugged (acoustic guitar) version of brit pop hits.

Books: One Hundred Years of Solitude

Animal name: Kaffogó Hebrencs

One Amazing Thing I've Done

- We helped to teach English to locals in Makassar, Indonesia (in EFAMKS - see: www.facebook.com/efa.mks). We miss you guys a lot.
- We hitch-hiked our way through the beautiful landscapes of New Zealand in five weeks.
- I played the guitar in a wooden church in Wellington.
- I did my best to taste as many kinds of meals as I could in the street food heaven of Bangkok.
- We saw Cape Reinga in New Zealand.
- We experienced the amazing vibe of Melbourne with all the street perfomers
- I played golf in Sweden with locals in heavy raining (I was sure yet in the morning that they would obviously cancel the whole tournament but they didn't)

Teach, Learn, Share

I am happy to share my experience in couchsurfing, foreign cultures and languages, playing the guitar and what I know about photography. I also can let you know about Hungarian culture, cuisine, places to visit and more. I am pretty much interested to learn anything that you know and I don't.
