About Me

Hey! I've been living in Antalya for the last 2 years, and originally I am from Saint-Petersburg.

I work in animal welfare organization Anima International. I like cosy coffee-houses, books (especially Yuval Harari, Orhan Pamuk and book about the big picture of the world), hiking, snorkeling, boardgames.
International master in chess.
My favourite city is Istanbul, favourite place in Türkiye - Dalyan (highly recommend to go there!).
