About Me


meet people & have fun


It's a long story, but I will try to make it shorter. I'm 39 years old, I work as a journalist/editor in a local newspaper since 1996., I live with my boyfriend and I like to travel. My biggest dream is to see all of Italy, especially Toscana! I would really like to visit Berlin. Lisabon, Barcelona and Paris. In return I will give you my couch and show you my beautiful city :)


What you do, you do it to yourself. (my mother told me that)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


The first couch that i surfed was in Rome (July 2008) and my host Danilo way simply the greatest:) Great experience! I will do it again and again and again:))
The same year I have hosted Galvao from Portugal and Serge from England and had great time with them. Last year I went to Budapest with my boyfriend and stayed at Catarina's place. We had a wonderful time. I consider my hosts and guests to be great friends! I hope to meet some more interesting people!

Music, Movies, and Books

movie: The Deer Hunter - my favorite movie (I adore Robert De Niro)
music: anything good (mostly rock'n'roll, but also fado, soul), but I don't like hard-core techno without vocals
books: I like to read :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I had BAD luck when I experienced war in my country/city.
Later I had GOOD luck to experience peace and enjoy life in my beautiful city again.
Nothing compares to that difference: war - peace.

Teach, Learn, Share

Experience :)

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can show you around my city and the surrounding area. Osijek je a very old city with a lot of history and my reagion is known for a beautiful nature park, a lot of rivers and very good wine. If you like to eat, you will also enjoy the local food, that is very unique and spicey, thanx to the many influences on our culture (Hungarian, Austrian, Muslim etc...). I can be with you after I finish work and would be happy to show you as much as I can :)
