About Me

Hello. My name is Pavel. I have been living in Western Europe for the last 4 years, originally from the great Balcans, and with keen interest for the Oriental world, especially Turkey and Irán, and India as well.

I work as a waiter in restaurants, and when I am not working I tend to have very long coffee breaks at home or on a sunny square, reading books. I am very drawn to Socratic philosophy, Jungian and Freudian psychology and Islamic sufis, especially Hazreti Jelaluddin Balkhí Rumí and Hazreti Hafez.

I tend to be adventorous in my decisions in life, but otherwise very laid back and quiet, even lazy, not at all a party animal as people of my age are supposed to be. I like meeting people, but not just for a hanging-out and time-killing (as Mr. Omid Safi of California said, time is too limited and precious to be obscenely "killed"), but for meaningful conversations.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

I am planning to spend this Summer in Antalya, Turkey, if God wants, and I am trying to use this platform to facilitate my state and find companions in the city.


Western Philosophy, Psychology, Islamic mysticism, persian poetry, writing, love.

Music, Movies & Books

Music: Lili Ivanova, David Bisbal, various latin and oriental music, Niyaz.
Movies: Almost no time for movies.
