my PhD, learn how to take better photos and videos
My name is Tihomir (which means serenity) but most people seem to find it easier to call me Timo.
Travelling and languages are my passions. I grew up in Bulgaria, butI lived in Iceland or on the road for the past 12 years. I recently came to live in New Zealand to do my PhD in Linguistics.
I like people and nature - climbing mountains, biking and doing long treks. I like to camp in places with beautiful views - nothing beats a million-star hotel. Good company is always a plus.
I try to write on my blog once in a while: http://www.carelesswhistler.wordpress.com

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I have hosted in Iceland and Bulgaria. These days I am travelling so I am mostly surfing. I can give advice for the places I have been to.
You can also contact me on BeWelcome.org: http://www.bewelcome.org/members/teeshirt.----****----
I expect my guests and hosts to be sane and relaxed people, respectful and open minded.
I don't like it when people use CS to make money.

I jumped off an airplane (while in flight), survived a fall down a waterfall, travelled overland from Nepal to Iceland, witnessed a sema ceremony (whirling dervishes) in Konya, Turkey, biked over 15000 km in Chile, Argentina, Bolivia, New Zealand, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Iran and Iceland, paddled down the Sepik river in Papua New Guinea, traveled down the Amazon river to go to Carnival in Brazil...
