About Me

****** I am leaving Croatia last week of September, will be back in late November. So I won't be able to host in the meantime******

Despite advanced age, I still mostly get around via hitch hiking, just finished a long one from Copenhagen back to Barcelona,and from Barcelona to Berlin.
I left Croatia when I was 18,having received an art school scholarship in the States, lived many different places after my return to Europe,mostly Barcelona
I'm vegetarian and lapsed vegan,since 20 years. Done a lot of activism,cooked with Food not Bombs and mobile kitchens for many years. Now mostly doing silkscreened concert are some examples:
I love exploring new cities and travelling in nature.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Having travelled extensively, countless times I relied on hospitality and generosity of others,as well as hosted many travellers in the places where I lived.Now I am back in Crikvenica for a while,and can hook you up for a few nights with 2 beds. I'm drawing a poster right now,so a bit busy but will have time to show you around a bit. You can also just drop off your gear at my place,and go exploring by yourself.
Being vegetarian,this is also the food I will make.for you. Looking forward to meet travellers who are also backpackers, hitchhikers,adventurers...
