About Me


continue my nomadic life, 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, but have been living in Iceland or on the road for the past ten years.

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.

This winter I will travel through South America. I will start in Colombia and make my way south. I want to travel down the Amazon, be in Brazil for Carnival and otherwise go with the flow.

I try to write on my blog once in a while: http://www.carelesswhistler.com

Why I’m on 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.


science, geography, cycling, linguistics

I work as a freelance translator and I am also involved in an open source machine translation project: www.apertium.org

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

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 4000 km in Chile, Argentina and Bolivia, paddled down the Sepik river in Papua New Guinea
