About Me

CURRENT MISSION

After traveling extensively in India for 6 months, and experiencing an earthquake of 7.3 magnitude in Nepal, I have decided to settle down for a while. My temporary new home was in Kunming, China, where I hosted many interesting people until June 2016. I have changed my apartment when I came back in September, so it wasn't possible for me to host anyone in 2017. Now, almost two years later, it is time for me to leave China and continue my adventure in Asia. My next destination is Japan!

ABOUT ME

See my personal philosophy, don't wanna repeat it here :)

PHILOSOPHY

I am on a quest for truth and purpose of my existence on this Earth. Up until my graduation, I have been using scientific approach almost entirely while trying to comprehend the world around me, but have realized that this deprives me of my inborn right to be happy. I have discovered that there is more to this life than what we can perceive with our (limited) five senses. Although I want to cash-in my time spent learning various stuff at the university, I also need to do some serious soul-searching and find my ideal balance between the material and spiritual aspect of my being. We live in a seriously twisted world, where money and power rule over mankind, where industry rules over nature. I refuse to be a sheep and a slave to such a system, and choose a path of a peaceful warrior.

Additionally, I need to mention that I am into permaculture, biodynamic and organic gardening, and everything else related to self-sustainable systems of living. Looking for a WWOOF type of exchange, so if you know about some cool project, please let me know!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Will try to host and surf some couches, meet new people, improve the image of my country (Serbia) and encourage people to visit it. For me, Couchsurfing represents a sharing platform, where one is able to give, without expecting material reciprocation. The only thing I expect from other CS-ers is to share their experiences, stories, hopes, dreams, smiles and good vibes. So far, so good! :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I think that amazing things are still yet to come, so I will keep this open until I get a chance to stand on a live volcano or something :)

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach English professionally to all ages, since I have done this in China for 2 years. I can also teach some basic Chinese to beginners since I have studied it in Kunming, China. I am sure I would explain some stuff better than Chinese teachers, lol.

I can share my traveling experiences, and some funny stories that accompany them.

Teach how to prepare simple vegan meals. We are slaves to our senses, so we often end up doing things that bring more harm then good. There is no need for us to kill sentient beings in order to sustain ourselves, so it all comes down to pleasing our taste buds. This is a bad excuse for murder, torture and exploitation that we support by consuming animal products. Avoid processed foods, especially meat and dairy products, eat more fruits and green veggies, and you will discover a whole new world, a world without sickness and bad thoughts. It is sooooooo worth it!

I can teach you how to play the guitar, some judo techniques, how to cure a headache by breathing deeply, how to plant young trees, and the list goes on and on...
