About Me

CURRENT MISSION

getting organized :-)

ABOUT ME

I'm a bitch I'm a lover I'm a child I'm a mother I'm a sinner I'm a saint.. I'm a 1000 things at once.

It's impossible to describe myself in an objective way. People that know me well say I'm .. super nice, charming, clumsy, a bit too impulsive, a bit too much with my head in the clouds, adventurous at times, a coward a other times, ... and I think I can agree with that :-)

PHILOSOPHY

Votre raison et votre passion sont le gouvernail et les voiles de votre âme qui navigue de port en port. Si votre gouvernail ou vos voiles se brisent vous ne pouvez qu'être ballotté et aller à la dérive ou rester ancré au milieu de la mer. Car la raison régnant seule est une force qui brise tout élan. Et la passion livrée à elle-même est une flamme qui se consume jusqu'à sa propre extinction. (K. Gibran)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I want to share the abundance of life with whoever is passing by, I want to learn a lot and teach what I know...

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

After a relatively long break of hosting & surfing & occasional participation at events, I am renewing my commitment to the CouchSurfing sect :-)

Most of my CouchSurfing experiences were very warm & profound. Some were disappointing, but others left footprints or at least lifetime memories..

Interests

Basically everything can be a potential interest, but I can discuss for hours and asking lots of questions about travelling, etnic identity & national minorities, anthropology, specific traditions & celebrations, and basically everything that has something to do with Southeast-Europe :-)

  • dogs
  • chocolate
  • gardening
  • traveling
  • hiking
  • surfing

Music, Movies, and Books

I listen mainly to new and traditional music from Southeast-Europe, but also enjoying very much music like Nouvelle Vague, La rue ketanou, Django Reinhardt, Cesaria Evoria, Babylon Circus, Yann Tiersen, Gotan Project, the Beatles, Absinth Minded, Black Box Revelation, etc.

My favourite movie used to be "Life is a miracle", but I am enjoying many kind of movies, such as the "nouvelle vague" films of Jean-Luc Godar, movies of Tony Gatlif, Guillaume Canet, etc..

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

During my hitch-hike trip through the 'mountains' (hills) of east-Serbia, I slept all alone in the woods at full moon hearing dogs crying all night long.. which for somebody who is usually shit scared to go alone to the other side of the garden at night, I felt quit proud of it :-)

I can teach you how to make chocolate mousse, I can teach you the beautiful Dutch language :) and even some cyrillic..
