About Me


Open minded - and chatty person ...
I have daughter.

Be active! Be Yourself!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I like to share knowledge and experience, get new friends- therefor:
I have NO PATIENCE for copy/paste one line requests,
I will NOT ACCEPT people who want to crush for a night between flights (2 nights minimum).
NO SMOKING!!! as we have kids.
I will PREFER GUESTS who will COOK, and will STAY 2+ NIGHTS



I do like cooking, so we will prefer quests who like it too- so let us know, what dish You could cook.
I suppose, You would like to try some Latvian too, right?

Folk music& dancing, and bicycling all year around!
During winter- ice swimming, so You are welcomed to try!

Music, Movies, and Books

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Found couchsurfing.com

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach You some Latvian words, folkdances, and Wim Hof method basics.

If You don't know how to do dishes- I can teach You , how do it yourself.
Ignorant quests will get negative reference.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Bicycle, space on the floor or bed.
