About Me


It almost feels like the question people get asked at job interviews: "What would your friends say about you?" I'm never sure what to respond to that, but here are some things that I believe are true about me: I am an outgoing, open-minded, adventurous, sometimes funny and very sociable person. I'm also up for every kind of fun - a bit of a party animal occasionally - but I also know how to be responsible. Since September, I am trying to balance studying two MA degree programmes and maintain a somewhat decent social life. So far, I am failing miserably - my grades are not what they used to be and my social life is next to non-existent. Even though I b*tch about time to time, I really enjoy my lingusitic classes and believe that language is one of the most powerful tools the human kind possesses
When staying with a host, I love discussing our life experiences, traveling, learning about the history of the place Im visiting, sharing tips, going out and generally just having fun.


Be the change you want to see in the world.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I've had wonderful experience with couchsurfing. You learn a lot more about a place if you explore with a local. I believe that culture is the most important part of traveling, not architecture or the nature, and you need people to really experience a culture. It is a human concept after all.
