About Me

Since I was a child, I had a dream - to live abroad. Almost two years ago I moved from Moscow to Toronto in search of adventures and better life. Since then my life became a great adventurous routine. I live in a busy city of Toronto and work as a Business Analyst in a beautiful suburban town of Whitby, which does not make sense for most of people I know but makes me feel like I go on a short trip in the country every single day. On the weekends I juggle, bike, hang out with my friends and drink cold beer regardless of a season behind the window. I keep trying to travel as much as I can, but my sick love for French language does not bring me anywhere else than Quebec.
I tend to not trust people who don't like beer!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

I have done some amazing trips in my life. Couchsurfing was always the best way to get to know cities, cultures and people. It was also the best way to bring a spirit of traveling in everyday life by hosting CSers in my previous apartment.
I am extremely thankful to this awesome community which brought me together with so many interesting people.

Interests

I love to learn - learning new skills makes me genuinely happy. I love to cook, read and grow plants on my balcony. I love to swim, bike and juggle. I think the happiest moments of my life were the moments of traveling, hitchhiking and camping. I love to be outdoors and enjoy the nature.

Music, Movies & Books

I get easily inspired by movies about nomads and long-term travelers: wild, tracks, into the wild. I love European cinematograph - especially all those slow and pretentious French films.
Music: noir desire, la rue ketanoue, lead zeppelin, guns n roses.

Teach, Learn, Share

I love to juggle and can teach you some basic tricks or maybe take a couple of lessons from you. I am good at ice-skating and can help you to make your first steps on ice. I can share some great hitchhiking stories and give some tips about hitchhiking in Europe. I can speak Russian with you or you can be patient and speak French with me which usually makes me super happy.
