About Me


Living, dancing, salsing... ;-)


Dancing swimming language book and movies lover :-)


Carpe diem
What's done is done
Don't go twice into the same river
I believe that each person have LIMITED amount of bad luck of her/his lifetime, that's why if something bad happens to me, I'm not so down, 'cause I know that it means that the bad luck stock is running down... weird?

YES always leads to good thing... in the end ;-)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I met very interesting people on CS and earlier on HC (yes, I'm also HC expat lol). I like very much exactly this kind of open-minded, smiling, interesting persons with their histories, points of view and different cultures and so many different senses of humor... :)

BTW, I found out that some people treat CS as a kind of frre-of-charge motel, that they can ignore if sth comes up. And I found it extremely annoying. It happens twice that the guests just found another host and didn't inform me about that.

So I'm implementing a new policy. If you want to surf my couch, you MUST read the following sentences and paste them into your request:

"I understand that if the host and the guest agreed on some dates etc, if the guest wants to make some changes (or want to resign from surfing the couch) should he/she/they should inform host in advance (at least a few hours), not after the fact. That's what we have mobiles and e-mails for."


In Istanbul in Turkey - very bad experience with male CSer that hosted my female friend and molested her sexually while she was asleep... Hopefully I woke up...

For some time discussing possible safety measures in CS. If you are concerned with safety, please join!


Recently my couchsurfing experience is influenced by my dance passion. I'm always up for dance, especially for dancing salsa :-)

Cooking: tasty and healthy :-) You are what you eat :)

dancing: mostly salsa, bachata, before also a bit of rock'n'roll, modern.

books: I was brought up in bookish family, so to say, I love reading - each book is like different adventure :-)

cinema: don't get me started lol :) I'm a movie buff, or almost a movie buff...
