Helper Description:
CURRENT MISSION
Interested in finding a spontaneous and crazy woman as best friend and travel companion to hitchhike together between Europe and Asia :)

PERSONAL DESCRIPTION
Besides what is written below, is possible to have even a more complete idea about me by reading also some of my life experiences that I published on my website at http://www.ClaudioAdrianoDobre.com/inspiring-travel-experiences/index.html

Born in Romania, grew up in Italy, lived in Poland, Slovenia and Turkey - I do not identify myself with any nation but just as European, I speak Slavic languages and I drink Turkish çay :)

The friends who know me well say that I am a free spirit and a well organized person. In time I noticed that when I travel I am spontaneous, while when I am at home I prefer to know two-three days in advance what is my agenda for the next days. My travel style is hitchhiking, backpacking and camping, traveling low budget trying to spend money only on food and on nothing else.

Since the first time when I went hiking on the mountains many years ago when I was still a teenager I felt great in the heart of the nature - when I am surrounded by forest I feel like my spirit is recharging with energy.
I cannot find any reasonable explanation: I always felt my spirit as the spirit of a Wolf and always felt a strong connection with Nature. I try to go hiking and trekking on the mountains every time I have the opportunity; I like lower mountains, covered by forest and rich in fauna, I am sensitive to the beauty of the nature and I prefer to go on the mountains together with people that appreciate the nature as much as me rather than alone. I enjoy interacting with people, but I like to reserve myself moments of solitude as well.

Someone once told me: "is not important how many places we visit, what is truly important is what we learn from those places". The two most important things for me that I learned from the people I met came from the Polish people and from the Turkish people: from the Polish I learned how great is not to go for a vacation when everything is set from the start till the end but just start without much planning and let life surprise me, while from the Turkish I learned to share what I have because God gave me so that I can give to other people.

I consider myself a trustful person and I trust people. I take things seriously and when I give my word I always keep it. And I like people who are like this. Dogs are not double-faced, You should also not be double-faced. There is no way I enjoy people who are double-faced. There is no way I enjoy people who make excuses, because I truly believe that as long as there is Will there is A Way. I enjoy people who keep their word when they give it, who are fair, loyal and sincere, who mean what they say, who have an adventurous spirit and a positive attitude towards life, curious and little crazy :)



PLEASE NOTE
==========
Because I work on Internet as a freelancer I use Internet a lot - it is important that there is a continuous Internet connection in the room where I sleep.

In order to meet, since I always hitchhike, the best is that You send me your exact location pinned on Google Maps.

I care about living and eating healthy; I prefer not to eat anything that is fried and anything that is fat. I do not smoke.

Starting with the beginning of 2012 I decided to give up completely using the phone, so now I'm enjoying my life even more without a phone number :) I use email to keep in touch with all the people I know and I have a mobile device that I connect to wi-fi. This means that in order to meet, we have to agree few days in advance about when and where ;)
I do not use Facebook nor any other social network :)

BOOKS, MUSIC & FILMS

My favorite book is "The Alchemist", by Paulo Coelho.

I like all musical genres except metal and hard rock, but I mostly enjoy oldies (1950s, 1960s, 1970s), pop, reggae, world music, rock ‘n’ roll, latin, soul, blues and surf guitar.
In my childhood the music of Michael Jackson was the soundtrack of my daily life - nowadays I still enjoy his songs a lot.

"The Beach" by Danny Boyle and "The Family Man" by Brett Ratner are two of my favorite films.
I do not like watching TV, I like watching films and documentaries.
