About Me


To break all the borders. As Kierkegaard told: There is nothing with which every man is so afraid as getting to know how enormously much he is capable of doing and becoming.


- I'm a Transilvanian dentist :D Yes, from Transilvania, the region that you always wanted to visit (be courageous, take a garlic and a cross and visit it!). We can speak a lot about its myths and history. Get ready to visit a multi-cultural region! But be also ready for a lot of parties! I really DO live my life. - The best way to describe myself is a quotation of Anaïs Nin: "Ordinary life does not interest me. I seek only the high moments. I am in accord with the surrealists, searching for the marvelous." - I am also Ambasador of the Republic of Artists in Romania (I opened the Embassy on 15th February 2008 and soon I'll open my own gallery, too). - I like to keep my shoes clean. I like to cook.- I appreciate my mother (so, I'm a good guy...) - I'll do my best to help you if you come here! Here's the rsult of the test on BootsnAll about me :"You are someone who others will come to rely on for their best travel advice and information. With any luck at all, you'll eventually get bought out by the BBC, so you can retire, and then keep traveling anyway."**Write this KEYWORD at the end of your request : "SMILE!" This way I know you read my profile and you're not just hunting a free couch


It's better to regret about things you have done than to regret that you haven't tried something. Open your mind and the rest will follow; there's more than meet the eye; and in life is very important to DARE and to give the challenge to the others. It's easy to live in comfort and bourgeois living style, but there's no challenge in this way, so in this case - we LEAVE our lifes, but if we dare for more, we do LIVE them!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I like to host many people and to show them the town. And to take them to parties! :) While travelling, I love to meet the local people(the best chance to make new friends and understand the local culture:) ).


I hosted and hosted and met hundreds of people


theatre (I have my own theatre group), reading, world's cultures and civilisations, mountains(I use to ride them every holiday), music, painting (my first personal exhibition in the Republic of Artists), etc.

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly; Once Upon In America; Cape Fear; but more than anything carttons like JUNGLE BOOK and THE ARISTOCATS ! :)
Music: jazz, rock, classical music, world's music
Books: Dostoievsky - "Idiot"; Nikos Kazantakis - "Report to Greco"; Fredric Brown - "Paradox Lost"; Hermann Hesse - "Steppenwolf"; Scott Fitzgerald - "Great Gatsby"

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

- When I was just a kid, I gave flowers to Ceausescu, the socialist dictator of Romania, during his oficial visit in Sibiu. Really few people succeded to do that ever, it was a kind of priviledge for the children with exceptional results (I earned 3 times the national award for reciting poetries/playing theatre). Although a rebel - I was the only one pupil who had long hair in the school in that socialist period (I was telling the professors I need the long hair for a role in a play)

Teach, Learn, Share

I can tell you many things about Transilvania's history and myths. But now I'll only give you a very good tip: YOU HAVE MORE CHANCES TO FIND A HOST IF YOU WRITE MORE THAN A STANDARD MESSAGE LIKE: "I COME THAT DAY, LEAVE THAT DAY, IT WOULD BE NICE IF YOU CAN HOST ME".

Countries I’ve Visited

Austria, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Kosovo, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Morocco, Netherlands, Poland, Serbia, Slovakia, Spain, Switzerland
