About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Coocking and sharing vegan meals

ABOUT ME

My name means Sunny Day in Lithuanian. I tend to think that weather becomes better where I travel (some earthquakes though happened around me).
I love art in any shape or form and alternative.
I'm an ultimate hippy of 21st century, or just a free spirit if you will.
I have passion for fire: breating it, eating it and now learning how to spin/dance with it. (although I only do it with professionals, not on my own (work is in progress :))

PHILOSOPHY

if it makes me stronger then it doesn't kill... (personal version)

How people treat you is their Karma; How you react is yours

Bad news: nothing lasts forever; good news: nothing lasts forever.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I go to events and/or organize local meet-ups, Halloween Party and participate in Zurich CSers group regularly.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

During one trip I've met 2 CSers and it was the best and the worst (unfortunately) experience all at once!!! (if you ask I can tell you the story ;))

Interests

-faces as places all have different characteristics. I'm always up to exploring both: What places have to show and what people have to tell.
-street art: finding, seeing, photographing.
-camping without a tent: nothing beats "1000 stars hotel" as sleeping in the moonlight

Music, Movies, and Books

my favorite topic, so try me, no Hollywood crap ;)

Nevertheless growing up in Soviet Era I was highly influenced by Russian culture. It does have great writers and musicians. Besides the obvious classics' I love nowadays writer Viktor Pelevin and my favorite band will always be Mumiy Troll.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

-swimming with dolphins was the best day so far, no matter how cliche it sounds
-diving: sky or scuba
-Bungee Jumping (Goldeneye, James Bond 220m in Versasca Valley)
-attending BurningMan while I lived in USA, now going to regional baby events in Europe (Afrika Burn is a mission)
-saw my cat giving birth and then eating dead kittens... hard to explain
-working with handicap and disabled people was the most rewarding experience
-spent a night in the Ice Hotel in Alaska
-hiked Himalayas
-got too close to a rhino in the Jungle, had to run for life.

Teach, Learn, Share

-how to have snakes as pets.

-how to tie a knot in a cherry stem with your tongue
