Finding new adventures and following my dreams.
I am a big dreamer, a child of skyflying mind. I love adventures. I like having animals around me and little children. I am a very passionate photographer...I'm very passionate in general about the things I like and believe in. I find small talk boring and prefer deep talk. Talking about things that really matter like world changes, simple life, peace, how to protect/improve/save the environment and create a better place. How it's important to not only have a dream but to follow your dream.
I have to admit though that I'm quite shy. I just need quite some time to warm and open up. I love to help too, so feel free to ask if you would like to get some help. If not I might just awkwardly stand there wanting to help and just waiting until everyone is away to quickly and neatly clean up the place and do the chores like a little house gnome to make your eyes gleam.
My personal philosophy is to be kind, show that you care, being helpful especially to those who are in need, to turn this world into an honest and fair place, and to be human. It is okay to cry, to be scared, sensitive, to not be perfect. It's just natural. I believe in love and expressing yourself instead of living only for work and a miserable hectic life. Follow your dreams and heart no matter what others tell.
My quote of life is "Break away, find your freedom, live your life."
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I have only hosted once yet because my apartment was so very small and now I'm travelling around the world all the time. But back when I lived with my family we hosted some people from Norway and Slovenia and it was always fun and interesting. I have made a few couchsurfing experiences and before I came to the Couchsurfing site, I made similiar experiences too. I hope that some day I might be able to host again.
- badminton/volleyball/table tennis/bowling
- street music
- flea markets
- air hockey/bowling/go-cart
- watching skateboarders & baseball games
- going for a walk (not hiking!)
- discuss about a better world
- going to playgrounds (esp. swings)
- doing scavenger hunts
- photographing & modeling
- cooking & baking
- line dance
- doing things I usually don't get the chance to or which are challenging, like riding a motorcycle, drilling/sawing, driving a quad, which was my best experience yet together wih riding a tractor
What I absolutely dislike is just hanging out and talk or going to bars or partying.
- farm animals
- table tennis

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I searched for a total stranger in the States,booked the ticket...and it was the best experience I've had.It was even better than my High School Year in the States (MT).We did so many fun things,they were so different,but the different was totally amazing.
Teach, Learn, Share
I might be able to teach the basics of photography. I can cook and bake and it even tastes good most of the times when I'm at home. It's always an experiment though. I could teach some Line Dance. There might be some other things I just can't think of right now.
I like to learn boy-stuff, like driving a tractor, building something, getting myself dirty.
I also would be interested in sewing and learning to cook a new meal or learning an instrument or learning meditation/yoga and how to dance. Taking care of farm animals and assisting is a very enjoyable activity too. :D
