About Me

Extraverted introvert. Sometimes it`s enough for me to sit still and listen to others speaking, next - I`m social animal and laughing like a psycho.

I find it important for people around me to be open-minded and to not descriminate anyone by their looks, gender, sexual orientation, etc.
I like people who are guided by love and passion in everything they do and I hope to become such a person one day myself.

The world is full of beauty and terror, pain and tenderness. I like to expirience those contradictions through art, travelling and meeting other people.

Kind people are the best. Be kind to each other.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I want to hear my voice speaking English, save money to take my cat to restaurant, meet awesome new people and dissapoint them, and see some beautifully weird shit.

Jokes aside, it`s a good way to leave the comfort zone.
I like beautifully abandoned places, that you can`t find on a regular travellers map, and the only way to discover them is to find them yourself.
Also I like to reach out for people with life experience that differs drastically from mine (or, on the other side - to meet my soulmates and get lost in sweet mutual admiration).


Great movie lover. Great music and concerts lover too, but don`t know, how to talk about it.
I`m a sex geek (it doesn`t mean that I want to rape everyone around me, it`s more like if I would study Medieval history, but with human sexuality instead of Medieval).
I like to pet animals and hug nice people (if you`re not nice, I won`t hug u, sorry).
