About Me


Please read at least my couch information before sending a request!

ALL about me? I don't know ALL about me, the more time passes the more things I discover about me. I can tell you some things though:

I am a lazy person. I don't like to work, but I do like to create and experience.

I am a cheap person. I hate to spend money on things I do not need so I can give it to someone else who needs it more.

I am a dreamer. I dream about being awake.

I am analytical. I fool myself in ways that are rational and logically correct.

I am closed-minded. I close my mind to violent, bad, false or unimportant things.

I am open-minded. I apreciate it when someone shows me how red the colour green can be.

I am funny. Even when I am the only one who understands the joke.

I am serious. Mostly about things that are not serious.

I am smart. Smart enough to say "I don't know".

I am always right(-handed).

I am modest. Too modest to list all my qualities.

I am selfish. I use the word "I" a lot when someone asks me to talk about myself.


Just some quotes that go deep:

Everything should be as simple as it is, but not simpler. - Albert Einstein

A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new. - Albert Einstein

A rich man is not someone who has many posessions, but a man who has much to offer. - I don't know

If you want to make this world a better place, you have to start at your place. - Cal from Munich

Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans. - John Lennon

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


When I can, I host people and try to be helpful.

about References: I will generally leave a reference for people I host or that host me. I also give more references for people that are new on CS and need them to show they can be trusted.

Otherwise I will usually send a friend request so that we can stay in touch.

Because I meet LOTS of people on CS I sometimes forget or am late with these things. Please do not be upset and if I should forget and a ref is really important to you then a simple reminder should be enough.

I myself do not take references too seriously. The time I spent and what I learn from you matters most to me. So I don't a mind late or no reference if from my experience with you I feel that I can trust you.


can't get enough


Travelling - who would've thought!

Hiking in the mountains - but without the really difficult or extreme stuff.

Food and drink - I love strange, unique, interesting and just good food and drink.

Computers - and most importantly what can be done with them when they are not useless.

Normal people - I don't care much about stars, wealthy people, ultra-cool and trendy people or very important people. I find normal people have powerful stories to tell if you are interested in listening to them.

Culture - whatever that is.

Music, Movies, and Books

I listen to a lot of music.

Right now a lot of classical.
At one point I was into into african music and nordic music. Ever heard of Tinariwen, Rokia Traore, Amadou et Miriam? No, then maybe Garmarna, Hagalaz' Runedance, Neun Welten, Väsen?
I know! Satie, Mozart, Beethoven, Tchaikovski, Bach must ring a bell!
What, not even that? Come on, what do you listen to then? Techno?

Movies: I hardly watch movies lately , cause good movies are very rare. I love romanian cinema though and can show you some of our better ones.
