About Me

In the last couple of 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.

I like to be inspired by experiences, music, literature. I prefer 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.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Music, Movies, and Books

Recently I'm so crazy with all the stuff that I watch, read and listen to, that I seriously can't make up my mind about the favorite things. I'm just constantly taken by all the diversity in the media, it's too difficult to choose!

But Nightwish is my eternal love, just saying ;)

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.
