About Me

''Finding pleasure in diversity''- Mario Vargas Llosa

"You ask me how I became a madman. It happened thus: One day, long before many gods were born, I woke from a deep sleep and found all my masks were stolen, the seven masks I have fashioned an worn in seven lives, I ran maskless through the crowded streets shouting,"Thieves, thieves, the cursed thieves."[...] And when I reached the marketplace, a youth standing on a house top cried, "He is a madman." I looked up to behold him; the sun kissed my own naked face for the first time. For the first time, the sun kissed my own naked face and my soul was inflamed with love for the sun, and I wanted my masks no more. And as if in a trance I cried, "Blessed, blessed are the thieves who stole my masks."

/The Madman/Author: Kahlil Gibran/

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To discover, learn, meet. Taste the whole world.


People - People - watch them, listen, understand, talk to, discover; cultures, languages; music, films, books, any kind of performing, creating, showing

**What I love: - traveling, looking in every little corner, talking with strangers on the street; interesting conversations that last for a night, nature, breakfast during daybreak next to the lake, walking in the forest, playing with the snowballs during Winter, cinema, learning new cultures, theater, laughing, watermelons, joking, funning, animals /but only the furry ones/

What I am allergic to is populism; ignorance; complaining, boorishness, overusing word ''pathetic''
