About Me


Aim for the dreams which are so big that they can scare you


I am a Lithuanian student currently studying Chinese and Business in Denmark. Why Chinese? Why not?

I like to push myself out of the comfort zone and see which direction it will lead. So far I have had only positive experiences.


-Who, if not you? When, if not now?
-If you can't change the situation, you can change the attitude
-Everything will be ok at the end. If it's not ok, then it's not the end.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I enjoy expanding my network, so I am interested in both in hosting and surfing as well as joining events.


I have only recently become a member. One problem is bugging me - what took me so long to join it?!


I like outdoor activities: hiking, canoeing, biking. The last 3 years I have been training kickboxing. I also took a chance to learn the basics of Kung-fu (Mantis Boxing style) when I was in China.
I LOVE food! Due to a busy schedule I usually don't cook at home, but I am always open for new flavors, combinations and textures.
If you wanna get me out of home even in high fever, inform me about a Balkan party!

Music, Movies, and Books

Favorite movies:
"La Dolce Vita", "Siberian Barber", "Snatch", "Fightclub"
I also have to admit that I am a huge fan of animated movies, such as "Finding Nemo", "Bolt", "Shrek" - it is fascinating how domestic things or animals can turn into eye-catching characters WITH great sense of humor.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

-Ran over live coals
-Hitch-hiked 4000km in New Zealand
-Trained Kung-fu in on of the oldest Buddhist temples in China for a month
-Delivered breakfast to Stevie Wonder, a vegetarian club sandwich to Prince (Purple Rain) and coffee to Whitney Huston(room-service position in a five star hotel had its privileges).

Teach, Learn, Share

I could give good basis for understanding simplified Chinese characters in an engaging way
