ABOUT ME

************************************************************** *I CAN'T HOST 1st MAY - 4th MAY* **********************************************************

i graduated at the uni at sociology and communication major. i work as a data analyst at CEU in full time and i am a football referee in the weekends and i sometimes have some contemporary partjobs.i spent 4 months in turkey and i learnt a lot about hospitality, i try to do my best. usually i am very busy sometimes i hardly spend time with my guests, forgive me. it is better if you bring some food because i am not a well-trained chef.i love ponies, balconies, flags; love staying, sleeping, eating, swimming on roofs. i love surrealistic experiences like walking in the basin of a dried river, listening ladytron in the cuban countryside, or visiting a houseparty in iran. i have a quite big collection of beer caps (150 pieces) but i must taste it. i like unique t-shirts. sometimes i hitchhike, my best ride was sofia-budapest!

PHILOSOPHY

"i've got all my love to give, i've got all my life to live." or vice versa

live fast, die old

that doesn't kill you, makes you stranger
