About Me


Live an interesting life, meet people, make friends


I am a cheerful and easy going person, generally an optimist.


If you are a good person, good things will happen to you.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Here I used to list the people I hosted and surfed at, but they became too many :)

I mainly like to host people and to surf when traveling. Not much into organizing CS events or meeting the Sofia community, but we can go to one of these if you want.


I have hosted a lot of people in my home in Sofia, mostly before Yana was born. Also surfed quite a few couches with and without my daughter. It's been great fun and i've made some good friends.


skiing, hiking, camping, beaches, beer, riding my bike, cooking, sewing, sleeping, nature, ecology, healthy living, organic gardening, natural birth and natural parenting.

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: Lemony Snicket's A series of unfortunate events, Pirates of the Caribbean, Aeon Flux
Music: ska, punk , raggae , dnb, some hip hop, lots of genres really.
Authors: Terry Pratchet, Douglas Adams, Tom Robbins. i love fantasy.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

- 2 months in Asia: in this short time we managed to travel across 6 countries by train, bus, car, boat, rickshaw, bicycle, hitchhiking and trekking.
- 10 months backpacking in Caribbean and South America with baby
- being a parent of one strong-willed, spirited kid

Teach, Learn, Share

Over the past couple of years due to having my daughter, I have learned a great deal about kids and the more "alternative" approach to parenting. I am always glad to share and discuss this, but promise not to bore you with it unless you are really interested :)

I would like to improve my Spanish - I picked up a bit while traveling in South America but it's still at a basic level.

Another new interest of mine is organic gardening. We plan to start our own garden next spring but we are still clueless on the subject so any input is appreciated.
