About Me


“Do anything, but let it produce joy.” :)


"- And you? Who are you?
- I am just like everyone else who listens to their heart: a person who is enchanted by the mystery of life. Who is open to miracles, who experiences joy and enthusiasm for what they do. It's just that the Other, afraid of disappointment, kept me from taking actions".
- But there is suffering in life", one of the listeners said.
- And there are defeats. No one can avoid them. But it's better to lose some of the battles in the struggle for your dreams than to be defeated without ever even knowing what you're fighting for."


I am a cheerful girl who is always up for good parties, conversations and adventures..

I am usually full of energy, I try to make myself busy but sometimes it feels so great being in my bed and wearing my pjs all day long.. :)

I have an enthusiasm for life and I believe everything happens for a reason.


I prefer to be crazy and happy rather than normal and bitter. :P


When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have been hosted several times in different countries and showed many people around in Budapest. Now in Stavanger I have started to host people too.

It is harder than I thought because not all of you from here are with the real couchsurfing spirit and some of you take advantage on the hosts. The guest needs to adapt to the culture, personality and habit. I also do it myself when I am on the other side. ;)


Sometimes great experiences, sometimes less good experiences...

But I can tell it for sure that I've had lots of smiles, laughs, interesting minutes and hours; days and nights, situations, conversations, great friends...

Teach, Learn, Share

I had been learning Croatian (for 6 years) and Hungarian (for 4 years) folk dances.
I know some things in Arabic, in Turkish and in Russian.. But I am rather a good Hungarian teacher:)
After living here for a yeas, I count as an expert in the Norwegian culture.

I am a massage therapist so if your back hurts... :) - This is only valid when I get hosted. Sorry guys, I don't provide free spa treatment. Be happy that you very lucky enough being hosted here - I am pretty picky. :)
