About Me

CURRENT MISSION

"Dont' worry, be happy"

ABOUT ME

"All good things are wild and free."
"Si quieres ver el arco iris, tienes que aguantar la lluvia".
"If you want to see a rainbow you have to learn to see the rain."

I decided to go, and give it a try. Understand the world, others, myself, see more, and learn everywhere, from everything.
After I finished high school, I took a year off working and traveling, I was in Canada in Montreal, through the US and I had a beautiful trip in South America. Then I started University in France, Aix-en-Provence. I had a year to study, work, and meet also beautiful people. I spent my second year in Poland, Krakow, thanks to a scolarship. In the summer generally I become a vagabond again, I was in Azerbadjan to do some volunteering work, I worked in Brasil and this summer I went to Israel.. until june, 2016 I will be back in France to continu my studies.
I'm trying to learn something everywhere. I'm trying to get to know the world, have experiences, learn languages, cultures, and meet people. I changed a lot, and the more I see, the more I realise how little I’ve known about life, about our world. Though, I will not give up, I keep on seeking, learning, reading, experimenting. I try to look for the positive side of things, and I attempt to be open, to grow richer humanely, mentally and spiritually.

I work hard to be able to travel, I hitchiked everywhere and lived in my tent, working often during traveling, selling artisan stuff and playing music on the street, doing volunteering and working in hostels, cafés, bars, retaurants, livig with local people, a simple, cheap and happy life. I did it because I love it, but also because I did not have the financial means. I am not a turist when traveling.
I like the idea to survive, and until now, I did survive. ;)

I am studying languages, I love history, literature, cultures and differences in our world.
I like reading, and poetry in different languages.

I'm also interested in geography, my hobby is to learn all the countries in the world with their capitals. Just to be able to make a surprise if I talk to somebody from a small country.

I like cutting the grass and collecting cherries and strawberries. And I like walking in the rain, or cycling in the rain.

But I also like learning very difficult expressions in physics or biology, as like "endoplasmic reticulum", "substrate specificity" or "chemosintetisation". :)

I believe that we are able to realize anything we really want to realize.

I like arriving somewhere, even if there is nobody to wait for me at the airport. I like discovering even if I do it alone. I don't mind going to a country where I have no idea how should I be, and I do not speak the language. I don't like say goodbye, but I have to do it every time I want to arrive somewhere again.

PHILOSOPHY

"Born to be wild!"

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I host people at my place when I have a place to stay, or I meet couchsurfers to have a beer or coffee, depending on how busy my life is.

I travel in the summer, and I hope to be hosted. :) Until now, I have only very positive experiences! :)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I am on the CouchSurfing for more than five years now and I have to say that I find it a great idea and I am very proud that I registered, I met very cool and very kind people and I have some unforgettable experiences thanks to CouchSurfing. I am suggesting it to everyone I meet.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Survived 2 months in a tent, sleeping on the ground, and getting up every day at 4 o'clock, cycle an hour to arrive to work at 5... and despite all discomfort, these 2 months gave me one of my best experiences ever. :)

Hitchhiking through South America, with a friend and with my two dogs, working on the street with local people, carrying my life in my backpack, my house as a tent, my bed as a sleeping bag and my friends and my family the whole world.

I did a 10 days Vipassana meditation course in Israel, tought by Goenka. It was a huge challenge but great life experience.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you useful (or useless but funny) expressions in foreign languages.
I can teach you about Hungarian culture, language and kitchen.
I can teach you how to do dream catchers, handicrafts, bracelets, necklaces, ear rings. I work a bit with wire and I do a bit of juggling. I play a little bit of guitar and drums. I dance more or less salsa and merenge.

We will find something to share for sure. :)
