Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Hong Kong, a small town with only skyscrapers. We don't have a lot historical architectures here because of the modernisation of urban area, but still there are some uniques, if you try to find them out. I love taking photos for architecture and scenery. If you would like to discover the old district of Hong Kong, let's say walk a long public housing estates, have a leisure meal in a traditional Hong Kong style restaurant, you are invited to go with me, but of course everything depends on my school and work schedule.

1. Croatia - My beloved country, I always think that I should have given birth there. :)

2. Architecture - If I have free time, I will draw some floor plans for my dream house, and try to model them in Autocad/3DS Max.

3. Language - As I have mentioned, I am really interested in Slavonic languages. Recently I am focusing in Bosanki/Hrvatski, because of their relatively easy classification of masculine, feminie and neutral nouns, this is definitely an advantage for a beginner of Slavonic languages.

4. Photography - To capture the joyful, memoriable moment when traveling. I love the feeling of everything seems just happened.

Music, Movies, and Books

Al' Dino - Kopriva
Gibonni – Libar
Toše Proeski - Igra bez granica
Vlado Georgijev - Do svitanja
Enej – Skrzydlate Ręce
Željko Vasić – Samo moja

Instrumental music:
Alexander Volosnikov – I want to go to the shore with you
The Rippingtons – A kiss under the moonlight
The Rippingtons – Sainte Maxime
Syntheticsax ft. Slava Gold – Memoirs
Jim Brickman ft. Dave Koz – Partners in crime

Besides, I really love the song "Can you feel the love tonight" in different languages, and also the song "Con te partiro".

Teach, Learn, Share

I am always open for learning new language, and personally focusing on Slavic languages because of their similarity, may be.I have a huge plan in my mind for relocating to Germany for study, so I'd better start learning German.

I am sure that sharing depends on moods, sometimes I can tell stories like an old uncle but sometimes I can be silent, saying nothing for couples of hours. I hope this description will not let you feel scared about me.
