About Me

Note #0: Be wise! Take a swimsuit while coming to Tallinn and I will take you to the sauna and jacuzzis. Don't ruin your experience by making such a terrible mistake!

Open-minded adventure time seeker. Sauna and ice-bathing fanboy. Master of showing around and chilling together.

I like an intensity. A few years traveling became my passion and the main drive of stepping out of comfort zone, and I started to spend most of the spare time on traveling and getting ready for new trips. I expected to visit a single country that year, but it escalated quickly and I`ve traveled to 19 countries in 2017, mostly solo and hitchhiking at cold nights, under the rain or aggressive sun. I have learned to trust my life and home to strangers who were usually very kind to me.

I was born and grew up in Ukraine, the country I truly like and enjoy my every visit back home. Ask me if I still have some nice chocolate candies with sesame. Most likely I don't because I have eaten them all hehe(evil laugh)

Recently I moved to Tallinn in Estonia to work here. You are especially welcome to during the cold and dark winters.

I prefer to host rather than being hosted. I'm too lazy to write all these nice requests, which you send me. I appreciate it and do my best to accept all if I can! Also, I'm lazy to read the long ones so keep it concise :D

While traveling, I always prefer to do CS, because it is the best way to discover the city, the culture and the people. Apart from that, you are able to enjoy and have a different experience with locals.

Occasionally I post my travel pictures on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/yurii_andrusiak/

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

1. Find my travel buddies for Asia/Latin America/ round-the-world trips.
2. Payback the hospitality I got from other people
3. Offer some gin tonic/borsch to you if available or/and grab beers outside

Also, I'd love to learn about other countries, cultures, life stories but the above-mentioned reasons are dominating!
