About Me


Learning as much as possible about other cultures


I love meeting new people and understand other cultures, learn new languages, cooking, exploring the world. I enjoy sport, especially squash and bike and I am interested in almost everything.



Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Hosting people and showing people around, having people for dinner etc.


I have joined CouchSurfing four years ago or so but I have been an HC member for longer (my name on is violetta) and you can check my profile and comments there too.
It is a great way to visit the world, being host or just listening at other people'stories.


Understading other cultures, traveling, learning languages, doing sport, meeting people

Every place where I lived or visited had their own beauty... that's why traveling and living in new country is so great.
