About Me


becoming better person

I have created my CS profile 7 years ago. Now I'm 30 it seems like a good time to update. But rather than writing it anew I would rather comment on what I have written :
I love traveling, yet I'm not into museums and monuments.

The thing I'm keen on is soaking up the atmosphere of the place. It's more about people that think and live in different way than I do, than breath taking sights. I don't know why, I just find it inspiring and refreshing. I can't really count the times I stayed hours talking with someone rather than roam around

I have to add that traveling is something more for me. I kinda need to do it every now and than. It gives me a whack on the side of a head, it allows me to hear my thought clearer and find my way.

As a traveler my biggest pros is that I hardly every complain and I don't mind barely everything.
it's 100% true. It has been tested extensively and i do grin widly now when I think about this funny episodes


Everything is easy and clear as long as you know who you are and what you want. I think that's a core of my lives philosophy.
That's a witty sentence. I have to second that but unfortunately I have now idea what I want and I have second thoughs about who am I? But yeah, life would be easier and duller if I knew.

I just finished a year when I said yes to everything, very interesting approach but now I'm more into following why not philosophy

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I share the beautiful idea of CS to people I believe will fit into the community. I have quite nice ratio of ppl brought to the cs project.

If someone put a little effort in their request I do host.
I have organised meetings, I have hosted people, I have helped travelers. I participate how I can

I must say that my CS experiences are ones of my best! It just brings traveling to new level

I'm becoming a CS veteran and nothing changes: I have surfed some great couches, and I hope to surf some more : )

Can you imagine that I have never had a bad CS experience?

and a new one "Why I'm on Couchsurfing" - Well, because I love the idea behind it. This true romantic idea not freeloading one : )
