About Me

*****If you're looking for a host, please read the "My Home" section before sending any request!*****


Hmm... Trying to find out who I am and what really important things are is life. Is it too serious? :)
A bit more practically: I moved to Dublin about a year ago and working in a café at the moment.


I believe in things which aren't based on money, like volunteering, hitch-hiking, couchsurfing, giving, exchanging things, clothes, languages, anything we got.
These make the world a better place. :)

(I don't say that we shouldn't use money, but it's much less important than we think.)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I've been kinda on and off since I've registered, have had a lot of amazing and some less amazing experience so far, and I'm at a stage of life in Dublin now where I'm able to host again. Looking forward to meeting new people from around the world.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I decided to leave Hungary and moved to Dublin on my own without knowing anyone here.

It's a long story why I felt that I need a really big change in my life but in the end I was brave enough to do it and it makes me very proud of myself.
At the moment I try to find a way of living that fits me and makes me happy. It may sound selfish but I deeply believe that you can only help other people or make the world a better place if you find your own way to do so and you find your own resources of energy.

Teach, Learn, Share

“If you love somebody, if it works, it’s because, most often, in my opinion and observation, you let that person be who they are. You don’t try to change them. Of course, you have to make compromises in any kind of relationship, whether it’s a love one or a working one, but as soon as you start telling the other person why you want them to be some other way that’s the beginning of the end. That’s conflict. How does that feel to the other person? That they’re inadequate.”
Jim Jarmusch
