About Me


Searching for the road to success!!!


Here are few pieces of information about me.

My name is Ovidiu Palcu.
I was born on June 10, (I guess this means I'm a Gemini, but I don't care about it, 'cause I don't believe in horoscopes) in Brasov city (considered in Romania the most beautiful city and the gate of entrance in Transylvania) but I lived mostly in Alba Iulia and few years in Cluj Napoca.
After studying different things in Romania and going through several jobs, I settled in Athens city, Greece where I lived permanently for 19 years since 1995! After I moved for a period in Scotland and now in Gibraltar and Spain!

Have I mentioned that I love to travel? Oh and I love to travel often!!! Oh and I love to travel CHEAP!!! I travelled since today in 50 countries!!!
I studied in the best school in Greece at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens and probably in the Balkans ( I guess I am not overdoing?)

The key for success is education and once you pursue that then there will be many other opportunities. My commitment to learning and volunteering with several Greek organizations has helped me to integrate easier in the Greek society.
At the moment I work in Gibraltar, after 6 months living in Gibraltar city, I moved to La Linea de la Conception, only few km away. I live close to the beach and the border with Gibraltar


I call my long experience abroad and specially in Greece amazing, and I am incredibly grateful to Greece, the Greek people and in special to my new friends for this period of my life.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I was active in Athens, participating to Athens CS group activities or posting and proposing events, here in Gibraltar CS activities are rare..


I hosted during the last years around 40 people, and personal I've been hosted in Poland, Romania, Belgium and France.


• Extensive reading and writing, watching movies
• Traveling

I like watching movies, listening music or reading books, but I don't have a specific movie, song or book which I can say is my preferate.
