About Me

Not an easy thing, to write about one's self. So, here is a selection of my favourite maxims which, more-or-less, describe my way of life.

———

"A ship in port is safe, but that's not what ships are built for."
— Grace M. Hopper

Yet…

“If one does not know to which port one is sailing, no wind is favourable.”
—Gabi Braga, UX Designer

“Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.”
— John Lenon

But…

"When life gives you a lemon, make lemonade!"
— Unknown (or at least I don't know him/her)

“Acquire a peaceful spirit, and around you, thousands will be saved.”
— Saint Seraphim of Sarov

“An eye for an eye ends up making the whole world blind.”
— Mahatma Gandhi

“If a law is unjust, a man is not only right to disobey it, he is obligated to do so.”
— Thomas Jefferson

“Pay no attention to what the critics say. A statue had never been erected in honour of a critic.”
— Jean Sibelius

“The heart has its reasons which reason knows not of.”
— Blaise Pascal

“I have never let my schooling interfere with my education.”
— Mark Twain

“God sleeps in the rock, dreams in the plant, stirs in the animal, and awakens in the man.”
— Ibn al 'Arabi

———

I'm mostly driven by a unique combination of reason, feelings and intuition. You should try that too. I can teach you. It's powerful!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Why not? It's a friendly place. Now that I have my own flat it's easy and a pleasure to host interesting people from around the world, especially the ones who carry uplifting stories and a good feeling in them. Thanks to the CouchSurfing community I've met a lot of unique souls… With bodies of course. :)

Music, Movies, and Books

MOVIES
———
The ones who make me sit in the very same position, reflecting for minutes, even after the movie has ended.

MUSIC
——
Essentially any kind of music that can give me the goosebumps. I mostly end up listening jazzy sounds, Celtic tunes and pretty much any melodies with authentic feelings imbued.

BOOKS
——
There are only around 50-100 books that you should not miss reading. You can spot them by the power of the ideas interwoven in them. Those ideas create and shape realities, from ancient age till this technocratic one. The rest is just improvisation. Don't bother reading every best-seller.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Тhat moment when I jumped into an almost frozen river in Siberia in mid-winter. Still wondering why I did that. :)

What I Can Share with Hosts

Wisdom of living, tasty and healthy food, life experiences and then some more.

Guest Policy

1. Let's share the cost of food.
I've been hosting quite a lot, so if things are not shared, my fridge gets empty quite fast.

2. Please don't cook meat in my kitchen.
I can show you some nice restaurants for that.

3. Please don't get drunk in my flat.
Alright… perhaps a little bit. :)
