About Me

Before you read any further infos about me... Please stop sending me standard messages that you could send to anyone! Be creative and personal, show that you've read my profile, write what you think we have in common, explain what Couchsurfing means to you, tell me more about yourself and your travel plans. I don't want to sound unfriendly, but I get so many requests from people who don't put any effort in writing something nice at all and I get tired of it. My advise is to send less requests, but make the ones you do send super nice and use them only once. If you travel with a friend, your request must have a link to the other person's CS or other social media profile. Copy paste requests can be declined with no explanation.

Couchsurfing is not Tinder. Everything that happens needs to be natural. If you are not an open minded, warm and educated person, please find another host or go somewhere else. Also, please, dont use CS just as a free place to sleep. If you are not open to share something, you may go to a cheap hostel. There are plenty of them in Bucharest (with 7-8 reuros per night). So, please, don't come to my flat, eat my food, drink my beers and leave without a word or a hug. That's really rude and completely destroys the purpose of CS! Also, as it is important for people to get an impression about us here, in this community, so I really expect that guests (and hosts) write a reference. I guess that's the least we can do to show each other some respect and appreciation. So dont hesitate to write me a reference :)

I am a balanced person who is positive about every aspect of life. There are many things I like to do, to see, and to experience. I like to read, I like to write; I like to think, I like to dream; I like to talk, I like to listen. I also like flowers in spring, rain in summer, leaves in autumn, and snow in winter. I like the land and the nature, I like people. And, I like to laugh. A lot.

My major interests are from the fields of History, Politics, Sociology and Art.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To share culture, memories, experiences... to brake the barriers under the limit of decency. I Hope I could meet smart, sensitive and interesting people through Couchsurfing. I had many great experiences through this social website and therefore I would like to be more selective in chosing my future guests and hosts.
