About Me

Здесь всё, что необходимо знать, если вы говорите по-русски: =)

I didn't host anyone since, I guess, November 2016, so for now this "maybe" in my profile means rather "maybe not", even though I'm still hoping to come back and be able to welcome you someday, and there's always a chance for "maybe tomorrow"...

je parle français / io parlo italiano / yo hablo español / eu falo português / ich spreche Deutsch / ik spreek nederlands / i might be able to understand a few words in some other languages, but not too much.. =)

I always *LOVED* foreign languages but it took some 20 years to actually believe that it's never too late and nothing ever is impossible. Ever...

... as much as I love the languages, I wish I could *play musical instruments* - this is something I really miss and regret that it didn't really happen to me when I was a child, but yet again I'm hoping that it's never too late ) ..


PLEASE, do read the HOUSE RULES section, and then there are some useful links scattered around, they might be helpful =)

Anyway, I know how desperate/hopeless you might be trying to find ANY place to stay for I tried it myself and it almost never worked for me, so if I have a slightest chance to host you, it will be my pleasure to answer: please, come =)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Every place and every journey is empty without the people we meet on our way. That's why I'm here. To hopefully make this world a little less empty for you if we happen to meet someday.

We have quite a few twin-cities around the World, most notably Rothenburg o.d. Tauber (Germany), Cles (Italy), Windham (USA) ... as well as Évora (Portugal), Loches (France) and Shangrao (China)... and though I didn't have a chance to meet anyone from the latter 3 cities yet, we do have a lot of friends in the rest of them and this is actually how we learned that traveling can be so much more than just sightseeing, so when we keep coming back, we come to see the people we know.. and remember. For always.

My personal and very special thanks to Martin Šťastný for making me believe in Couchsurfing again.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've seen the dawn in Venice..
....and I've had 42 days of traveling around Europe all alone, meeting some new and old friends - it was a miracle.. )

Teach, Learn, Share

As soon as I finally have a kitchen (someday), please, teach me cooking =), and I will remember you every time I cook this recipe for someone else.. )
