About Me


Study and travel whenever I can.


I am very sociable person, like to experience new stuff, rarely get upset and enjoy a good company. Like to debate about things over a glass of red wine and have every now and then a spontaneous adventure. I enjoy it thoroughly to help people and to share my thoughts about related subjects.


If you do what you love, you will never work a day in your life.
Everything will be all right in the end. If it's not all right it's not the end.
In great conversations the jokes are small but the laughter is in abundance.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I surf and host whenever I am able to. Also would help where I can whether it is giving a ride to someone or to help eat the cookie dough.


Went for my first CS potluck in London, ON where I met some great friends. After that I drove almost every weekend to meet up with all the CS in London to do various things from camping to watching a live rugby match and then go dancing at a street festival afterwards.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Walked across the Pyrenees on the border of France and Spain for 42 days from the Atlantic Ocean to the Mediterranean Sea.
