About Me


I love creating and experiencing art. I do paint myself, and I like to see beauty in everybody I come across. I appreciate different views and toughts about life, and I believe everyone has something to offer to each other, as long as we are willing to receive it. I enjoy life without unnecessary chedules, and partly because of this I find it sometimes very hard to adjust myself to this hectic western countries..If it's me to decide, I plan only when planning becomes impossible to avoid. I believe the more simple you make your life, the more better you start seeing things and find what's actually important and necessary for you.
I would say I'm still searching my place in this world, but as they say the travel itself is more important than the destination...


Learn from others and treat everybody as you'd like to be treated yourself. I believe that as long as we keep ourselves focused on the things we admire, we'll success and reach our goals.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


While I've traveled, I've met such amazing hosts and people, that have completely opened their home, shared their toughts and dreams with me, and even trusted their kids for me, that after this kind of kindness and solidarity which I've come across the least thing I can do is to treat others as I've been treated.


Painting, learning new languages, laughing, walking in the nature (especially mountain hikes are my new interest!)
