About Me

After finishing my studies in Hungary, about 7 years ago I moved to France, near Paris, to continue research in astrophysics. There's always a lot of work -that I love-, but apart from that I like to do other things. Please find them among my "Interests"...

You may find me on Google+ or LinkedIn.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Actually, this came as a sudden idea, as I happen to need accommodation for only 2 nights in Honolulu after a conference in August 2015. I knew about this network, and some friends confirmed that it's fun. On top of that, I like meeting new people and getting to know locals' life when going somewhere.

- Hiking, skiing, scuba diving, sailing

Music, Movies, and Books

Music (for example): Chopin, World Music, Manu Chao, good rock, sometimes house, but definitely different music for a dinner or for sports.

Movies (right now): Criminal/spy/sci-fi/fantasy movies or series, but dubbed in French for practising language. :)

Books (for example): One Hundred Years of Solitude, Le Petit Prince, Terry Pratchett's discworld books...
