About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Improve my German

ABOUT ME

I'm an open-minden person, my pession is to meet many people from different cultures, we are all humans, but what makes us really special is our culture and traditions, and I hope to assume from this as much as possible. I love reading, singing, writing, just going around the city with my friends, meeting new people, doing volunteer work, and I play the djembe. I love nature and animals. I have a dog. If you'd ask people to describe me, probably the first that would come to their mind is that how much I love Michael Jackson. He is my true inspiration, among others like Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King, Steve Biko, the Dalai Lama, Thich Nhat Hanh, Princess Diana... I believe all people have a plcae where they feel like they are really at home, and that is not necessarily the country where they were born. I feel like this for South Africa. I also feel really close to Tibetan culture.

PHILOSOPHY

"Our own life has to be our message." ~ Thích Nhat Hạnh

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I love hanging out with people if they visit Hungary, or if I visit their country, and help travellers feel more comfortable and get to know my country more. I have met great hosts and looking forward to share my couch when I have my own place.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Thanks to cs, I've met amazing people, and I even have close friends I met through couchsurfing. I gained a lot of experience, it's wonderful how couchsurfing opens the world to people and makes travelling much more fun.

Interests

Different cultures, music, politics, migration issues and helping refugees, buddhism, history, and the two biggest passions of mine - South Africa and Michael Jackson.

Music, Movies & Books

I mostly love historical and adventurous books, crime stories, my favorite writer is Wole Soyinka, but actually I just love reading in general. In music I mostly listen to the 80s, reggae, african music or any kind of traditional music, but I could say I the most important is the lyrics, if it's inspiring and has a meaningful message, I'll like it, regardless of style.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

There are so many amazing things... you just have to observe everything very closely, and you can see beauty even in the smallest piece of stone.

The most awesome memories from the past one year would be the concerts I attended, and that I got introduced to Buddhist thinking.

Teach, Learn, Share

I basically want to learn EVVVERYTHING about this world!
