About Me


explore corporate US landscapes for a bit.


After moving around between Lithuania (born), Florida/US (work), New York (family) and Belgium for a while I went on trip around the world for the 1st time (SE Asia/AU/NZ/FJ/US/BR) which eventually has transformed into something more. After all the wonderful and exotic places I've realized one doesn't have to go to the end of the world to have extraordinary experiences - been exploring and getting to know my neighbors around LT for a while. Lately have been back on the road a lot, exploring different ways and styles of experiencing life.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


as probably nobody likes to do this - i will pull that hair ball in your shower drain, so you have to do it 1 less time in your life =]


used to live and co-host with 2 CSers in Vilnius. Many many many great last-minute couch stories (hh'ing tends to require that). Back in May'09 I did manage to meet probably the only Lithuanian in Guangzhou via CS friend. I've hosted people in Vilnius, Brussels, at my grandma's in NY and in my tent while on the road. Gone traveling with quite a few CSers, introduced them to the art/science of hh.


hh/autostop; diving; mountain biking; anything with shiny lights wires and buttons; mixing all kinds of tasty beverages; making grumpy truckers and eurocrats smile with 'brazil' or such sign
