About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to find the time to involve in some civic actions like "promoting cycling in Bucharest" or "beeing polite in the city" or "stop to consume just for the pleasure of consuming"...

ABOUT ME

It's impossible to say everything about me. Recently many friends told me that I'm the most sane, steady person they know. I quite agree with it. I'm a calm person, I don't know how to get nervous, even if sometimes I would like :) I like to laugh, to spend time with my friends, to go in the mountains... but I also like to be home, a very special place. I have a problem with the consumer society, sometimes it's just too much. Eg, a friend bought an apple packed in a plastic bag and already cut in small pieces!I'm more and more interested on Romanian traditions and history. I think it's important to know our background. It helps to build the future. I have a problem with Romanians who discriminate against gypsy and not only...I hate TV.I like drinking tea, beer or mulled wine, depending on the season. I love outdoor activities (especially cycling, mountain biking, trekking) and recently also Argentinian tango, so tango dancers are welcomed :)Bust most of all I love my grandma, she is 88!Too many things to say... I will fill in this section regularly, or maybe it's enough...

PHILOSOPHY

Don't like this section cause it's difficult to synthesize. I have plenty of "personal philosophies", that I would call values. And the values who is probably on top of the others is that we always have to act according to our values, not to be fake, sometimes people forget to act naturally...

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

My participation to CS was born from the same desire as for my job. I have a travel agency because I've always wanted to make people discover our beautiful contry, the way I love it. The same with CS, it fabulous for me when I can share a bit of my country, my history and my points of view about it! The advantage of CS (that I don't have in my job) that you can choose people like you!
