About Me

In the last four years I have been living in three different countries and it looks like I still haven't truly found a place to settle down, so I just keep on going like this until I find it.

Even though I'm a rather quite person who enjoys solitude, I also appreciate a nice conversation with people whom I find interesting. I like to be inspired by experiences, by music, by literature. I like to spend time in an international environment (probably that's why I can't seem to be able to stop moving from place to place).

When I visit a place I don't usually follow the tourist path. Instead I prefer to wander around finding things, streets and corners no one pays attention to. It's the small things that make me fall in love with a place.

As a guest I'm very easy to cope with and very independent. I respect people, their openess as they let me into their homes and show me a little of their private lives. I'm very tidy and I always take care of other people's things more than of mine own.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Erasmus in Finland: an experience that opened my eyes to many things and changed my life significantly.

Teach, Learn, Share

Because of my studies I have a good understanding of linguistics and I like to tell people about my native language's peculiarities.
I'm also very interested in West African drumming culture, I play the djembe and some other drums and I simply enjoy talking about things related to music in general.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I like to exchange stories of various experiences, especially related to culture and travelling. I always get very excited whenever I have a chance to talk about world's diversity and to share my personal observations of various cultures.
I'm not a very good cook and I can't amaze you with magic tricks, but I can provide you with a nice, funny or serious at times, but most of all interesting conversation :). And I can always bring you something traditional from my native place.
