About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Try to make this journey called 'life' an unforgettable one!

ABOUT ME

I consider myself a traveller who enjoys visiting local attractions before tourist attractions, and meeting locals is always very interesting. That is why I completely share CS's concept of hospitality.

I have been living in different parts of Europe, now settling in Barcelona.

When I host I offer a clean place to sleep and when looking for a host I expect the same. Hygiene at home to me is rule number one.

When on the road I like to deal with reliable people.
I am not using CS as a dating site, so do not bother sending me a message if your aims are different from the CS philosophy.

Please make sure you read my profile before sending a request (not a message), and understand this is not about getting free accomodation (you can use hostels or Airbnb for that), it is about sharing.
Unpersonal requests who do not show any kind of committment towards the Community will not be taken into consideration.

If you go to Tenerife, please do not visit Loro Parque. Here is why:

Also, I wish people would stop booking elephant rides and visits to tiger sanctuaries in some countries. The animals in these venues are heavily abused until they learn to obey for our own entertainment. Such a practice takes away their natural attitude, and their soul. These animals belong to the wild, period.

At the moment I am living in Barcelona, hosting cultural events through meetup:

I will be glad to show you around my city.

PHILOSOPHY:

Be closer to yourself.
