About Me


build a cloudbuster


I've listened to so many songs, I've seen so many full moons, I've exchanged so many words, I've shaken so many hands, I've drunk so many beers. I still don't know why the sun burns our skins equally.


life is an orange

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


give and take, whatever that means.


quite a few already, sometimes I felt the joy of people hosting me, sometimes I had wonderful one-night-talks with perfect strangers, other times I felt like a tolerated refugee in a camp.

I remember that estonian girl who came to my place in Santiago de Compostela, exactly 2 hours before I moved out from Spain, but I introduced her to my friends and apparently she had an unforgettable time with them. I was so glad.

update: Elihh my dear...

new update: I have to stop adding my best experiences, they are already too many.


I think a lot, therefore I try to play more tennis:) Or to hit my box sack harder!
I love meeting new people, I hate when Im not able to really get to know them, I'm sad when I have to leave friends behind (or viceversa); I love my bikes, the 3 of them, I play with a camera from time to time, I love vernissages, cause everybody's there looking for new ways, new people and free drinks:)
I love travelling and living in new places, living like those people live, try to feel what the others feel.
I love Africa, hope to go back soon.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

together with a friend I saw 2 UFOs, 2 shining mirrors, appearing in one spot of the sky, disappearing in another one, moving slowly between the 2 points, at a few seconds one after the other. in the middle of a sunny day on the Romanian beach. hallucinating, wordless experience...

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you something in any of the languages which I speak and you don't. I would love to make a homemade film with someone enough interested in this:); I know a lot about building bikes since I live in Berlin; I could talk hours about philosophy and hopefully you could learn something from it:) or give me new ideas; I could teach you how to orientate in the Romanian mountains, I was a guide once; we could sing together, it's my only evident talent...
I would love to learn playing the piano; and improve my tennis knowledge; I would love to learn healing techniques like turning someone from sad to happy by touching his/her hand; I know hoy to cook peruvian "causa" and spanish tortilla, or some Romanian traditional turkish dishes:) I still don't know how tiramisu is prepared!!! and I could eat tones of it!
would love to learn Hungarian one day...
