About Me


Live an interesting life, meet people, make friends


I am cheerful and easy going, love beer and good company.


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

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


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. Also surfed quite a few couches with and without my daughter. Couchsurfing is responsible for some of my absolute favorite traveling experiences.

Teach, Learn, Share

I know a lot about natural parenting, alternative approaches to education, etc. but we don't have to talk about kids unless you want to! Naturally, my favorite topic for conversation is traveling, always enjoy exchanging stories and experiences.

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.

I would like to learn about photography.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I love cooking and usually make some traditional Bulgarian meals for our hosts.
