About Me

To make those dreams come thru instead of keeping on dreaming and put my energy where it can make best impact

You can call me Gosha. Nowadays I am studying again and looking for the new, opportunities to apply my energy, knowledge and experiences in the way so they contribute to the World becoming better place. I am a community researcher , worked in the funding sector, before I have been running Social Enterprise , working for homelessness and migrant charities etc. I am good at organising things for people ie: off bitten track culture ,trips to experience nature etc. When I find time I teach crafts and art, sometimes I do my own art projects and for the rest of the time I tend to walk some hills or windy beaches.
I was doing different things before and I will be after surely too :)
As it is travelling people's community so I guess I should say that I travelled my bit, and still do when other things do not seem to be more important at the time. Some time ago there was no more important things for me than travelling, now I do other things too :) Of course It always may change again :)...
I like to think that I am an considerate and open minded person, but I tend to speak my mind out and generally get on with people who are honest, sincere and adventurous better . I will do my best to be sensitive to your needs if you will COMMUNICATE them with me in advance :)
I am one of those people that on one hand are "serious" and "firm", but on the other will most possibly never " grow up". That involves a lot of outrageous activities, for example such as climbing mountains wearing ball gowns.... Those fun moments are always good to share with friends.
I really appreciate quality company , preferably in the small group , meeting people enriches my life and gives it perspective that I constantly need to adjust.
I don't care much for material goods and believe that comfort is a relative concept- it means different things to different people, depending of the circumstances . Personally I am happiest when things are simple: sleeping under the stars and sat by the fire (without a chair) are my favourite.
I meditate (silently) , or try to, depending of the day :) similarly with Iyengar Yoga. That is info for those who care or are looking for host that will not get puzzled when you pull cushion or yoga mat out.
Maybe we will meet one day, who knows? :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I used to do lots for and with the CS community, now, due to change of circumstances, I am unable to host for a while


got all sorts of experiences, mainly really good, but always I will be happy to have more.


Plenty! I am literally interested in learning anything that has positive effects. lately I am fascinated with mechanisms of biasing and methods of overcoming it, social business models, microeconomies..... I will not Bungee jump or watch football on telly , but if you have enough patience to win very slow chess game with me I will go for it :)

Experienced few amazing tho and have some stories to tell :)

Teach, Learn, Share

I love to collaborate with people , so if you have an idea that makes the World better and life more interesting , you may find a careful listener, and perhaps even "partner in crime", in me. I can teach Crafts of many sorts, specifically anything to do with wool.
