About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Love to communicate and share the positive attitude to all the surrounding. Hey, everybody, just do it! :)
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 Cuba is the place for my next travel, hopefully.
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, avoid leaving harmful traces as much as possible.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Hey all, I'm on travel path till mid-August, not accepting guests.
Wish you safe and inspiring travels + much fun. See you later!

I am ready to share my time, knowledge and of course, my couch

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I`ve hosted very differend CS from different parts of world and i`ll say it was great experience for everybody us and an excellent time spent together!!

Interests

I enjoy active lifestyle. I ski, snowboard, kitesurf (beginner), freedive and I`m ready for almost anything :)
I`m also keen of Latvian sauna, which is some kind of sitting in a heated and steamy place and beating yourself with bush and afterwards jumping in a cool pond. Anyone interested? I have one on my own in the countryside...

Music, Movies & 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 :) and swimming in the rain!!
The last summer 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!!

Teach, Learn, Share

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