Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm travelling a lot. Sometimes too much I think. I have no home. Modern gipsy. Usually I can't host. But I'm always happy to meet open-minded people, friends and colleagues.


Many open hearts warmly welcomed me and this is the best memory of mine.


Photography is my passion, Nature is my mother, and all people are my brothers and sisters. Let's have a tea together!

I'm concerned with cultural and social aspects of human life, ecology and natural ways of living. Diversity of cultures, relations with nature and surroundings, traditional lifestyles are the most interesting topics for me as a photographer and independent traveller.
