Learn more about storytelling.
I'm Vlad, and I'm absolutely fascinated by the human mind and psychology. (I've got a bunch of stories and a few cool demonstrations, just ask :).) Which is the main reason I've decided to become a life coach.
I also love meeting interesting people and doing fun things. Hmmm, on second read-through, that sounds pretty obvious.
Anyway, one day I had an epiphany, when I realized how much I hate the usual travel style I've been brought up with since childhood. That is, going to an interesting exotic location, then spending days there in a hotel, mostly going to the beach (altough that's nice, don't get me wrong), and visiting crowded touristy spots, which I find excruciatingly boring.
So then I heard about couchsurfing... which sounds exactly like my kind of travel! Meeting new people, who know all the cool interesting things you can do in their hometown, often have fascinating unusual hobbies... well, you get the idea.
So, that's why I'm here on couchsurfing. And that's why I hope we can someday meet and have some awesome fun experiences! :D
From sports, I like basketball, volleyball, rock-climbing, and other fun things you can do with a group of people, like ultimate frisbee :)
I also like chess, reversi, draughts and other board games in general, so if you have a favorite one, feel free to share it with me :)
I play the piano, and I've always wanted to learn to play the accordion and guitar. (Update, August 2011: Well, over the past year I've learned to play the guitar. Hooray!)
Other than that... well, there's probably a million other things I'm forgetting right now, but hey, chances are, whatever your unusual hobby is, I'm going to love hearing about it and/or trying it out myself! :D
(Oh yeah, swing dancing. That's a big one.)
