About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Love to communicate and share the positive attitude to all the surrounding.
Change and develop yourself and the world around you
Go on the flow, at the same time up the stream, haha sounds strange!

ABOUT ME

Let`s smile and you`ll give some good feelings to others! It`s that simple, isn`t it?
I try to do the things that I really love. And I definitely like to TRAVEL and meet up new folks, therefore I am here in CS. And Southeast Asia is the place for my next travels.
Ohhh, and cooking.. It`s the thing I practice a lot! I like to cook healthy (and spicy) meals, especially for joyful dinner-parties, and good wine is always appreciated! :) prieka! (it means cheers! in Latvian)
Learning French is on my agenda, so anybody French-speaking - vous êtes bienvenus!

PHILOSOPHY

Enjoy the sun, because tomorrow it might rain. Give a smile to a passerby, maybe he expects it right now, hey just live your life TODAY!

Non-vionence in one's deeds and thoughts is essential. It is related not only to humans but as well to our surrounding world. Invest in changing yourself and surrounding and avoid leaving harmful traces as much as possible.

Music, Movies, and Books

Ratatouille - my favorite one.
Music: i love world music weather it is portugese fado, russian romances, french chansons. sometimes i use to listen to music in background. but often just switch off the other businesses, immerse and feel it:)
Reading: some peaces of Richard Bach is classics for me.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Walking in the summer rain allowing to get myself entirely wet and swimming in the rain!!
The moment i did my first 100 m on my kiteboard. Woaaauw!!! sooo amaizing feeling that you are pulled by the wind and riding the sea waves! you feel only wind blowing in your face and the increasing speed! until you can hardly controll it ... and then splsahhhh - you are under the water :)) ..all the nice things are so short :DD
Recently i wend kitesurfing to Dahab, Egypt, it was lack of strong wind so i tried freediving. I did 20 m, and it was my big discovery - all the underwater life is so amaizing and the sensations once you have done it is sooo good!!
Swimming in Adriatic sea, Egypt at midnight - the stars shining above and tiny lights moving around the water coming from millions of dazzling tiny creatures in the water, got feeling like in a fairy tale.
Metitation in a temple in Nepal accompanied by chanting prayres.

Teach, Learn, Share

One`s experience, knowledge, philosophy of life - what can be more invaluable to us?
