About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I try to enjoy my freedom and life while I still have the conditions to take the most out of it!

ABOUT ME

Well I would like to start to say that I'm a freshman in Couch Surfing. I consider my self a sociable and laid back person. I try to face life with a smile and enjoy it while I can. Sometimes it's hard to do it but I try to be positive about it. I love a good laugh.
I am also a very curious person specially on the human nature.

PHILOSOPHY

Try to do different things while you are able to do them as long as you don't affect others in a negative way. Trying to be happy and contributing to the happiness of those who surround me.

I think that in life things rarely are either black or white (apart from scientific facts lol ) because they usually stand in the grey area, which, in my opinion, makes life much more interesting.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I'm new to this site so I didn't have any official Couch Surfing experience. I love the CS concept altogether.

Interests

Traveling is my biggest passion. I love to meet people from different countries and cultures. That was one the biggest factors that made me move to a city like London.
I like sports, cinema, music and spending a great time with my loved ones. I like to read a good book. Good food and drinks of course.I also try to take care of my body.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music - Different places, different people and different emotions may require different music. Music has a big impact on the way I feel. Nowadays I would say Trip Hop is my favorite music style, being Massive Attack the band that I currently listen the most to. There are many bands that had a big influence on me but I would say that Pearl Jam was the one that had longer influence. I still love to listen to their songs. Currently Interpol is also one that I consider quite good. I try to be eclectic as I can. Some artists that I like: Pearl Jam, Massive Attack, Morcheeba, Bush, Thievery Corporation, Radiohead, Prodigy, Chemical Brothers, Basement Jaxx, Ben Harper, Astral Projection, Hip Hop, latin music and on and on.

Books - Russian Literature(Gorki is my favourite) Dystopian literature(P.K.Dick,Orwell or A.Huxley), historic and existential literature.

Movies - Going to name a few that I Like : Into the Wild, Inglourious Basterds, Indiana Jones ,Inception , Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Pan's Labyrinth, 28 Days Later, Forrest Gump, Trainspotting, Der Untergang (Downfall), Kill Bill, American Psycho, Crash, American Beauty, Gran Torino, V For Vendetta, Platoon, Cube, Back to the Future, The Hangover, The Prestige, Memento, Fight Club, Clockwork Orange, Shawshank Redemption, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Life is Beautiful, Sophie Scholl or American History X.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Well the friendships that I've done are my biggest accomplishment so far and I hope it stays that way.

I've been to several interesting places but nothing beats the sunset back in Santorini and Ibiza.

Teach, Learn, Share

We learn a bit from every person that we meet along the way. Personally I prefer cheerful, enthusiastic and good talkers. Good sense of humor is quite important as well but it can be compensated with other good qualities. Being open minded as is always a big plus.
