To share my joy of living, to stay curious, to be kind
I see myself as a simple yet profound and thoughtful person. I'm drama free, easy to talk to, friendly and warm.
I still believe in inner beauty, in humanity and in love.
Do things that scares you every day. Unless it's riding a bike without breaks down the steep hill right into the lake. Done that - not proud at all.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Whenever I find my place here in DC I'll try to host. For the moment I'm enjoying CS happy hours every week!
Ups and downs :) Everything started in my early early twenties when I went to study in Italy and continued with some bigger or smaller pauses till now. Couchsurfers made my year in the USA full of great experiences. I feel truly thankful and amazed of kindness and intelligence of people from all over the world.
I've been lucky enough to turn my biggest passion and interest - architecture and design - into a permanent job and occupation. However, staying open-minded and curious leads me to the new great experiences, such as trying challenging sports and activities (wakeboarding, paraplanes, hitchhiking) or becoming a volunteer in a children camp.
I love the vibe of music festivals when you can dance in the forest till the dawn. I always feel inspired by all kinds of professional art and culture. I enjoy jogging in long summer evenings and reading in winter. I could talk about Tolstoy for hours :)
Yet one of my biggest joys is yoga, and acroyoga in particular. Yoga - for inner peace, acroyoga - for fun and laughter.
- interior design
- music festivals
Music, Movies, and Books
Music: that makes me dance or dream. My favorite changes every year or sometimes every month but there are soooo many beautiful artists. I enjoy everything professional or at least inspiring from classics to rock and indie. Though most of top charts nowadays make me kind of sick.
Movies: that make me laugh or cry. Or both. I love independent cinema, movies shown on European cinema festivals. Also I always enjoy movies from Inarritu.
Books: those which tell a good story. My favorite is Silva Rerum - an amazingly written story about 17th and 18th centuries in Lithuania. This year I also discovered Tolstoy for myself as his so well written masterpieces made an impact on my views. Bulgakov, Camu, Kundera, Gary, Marquez, Eco and many others are my inspirations.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Teach, Learn, Share
According to Dante in the Divine Comedy, Heaven is only for those who are never fully satisfied with what they are/what they have because a human soul, if it exist, must always have something to look for, to improve, to go further. I learn from people who are happy because their journey is their happiness. Like grandmas learning new languages or a fifty-something man changing his profession. Never stop!
