About Me

ABOUT ME

Graduating art historian, I am getting ready to continue my education next year and to study decorative arts and design.

I like to cook, to read, to make something with my own hands .

I am good at learning languages, though I am a little bit lazy doing that :)

In my childhood i have spend many summers in an international camp in Hungary and that was the start for my love of traveling. Every year I met there my old friends and made new ones. Though many years have passed, I still keep in contact with some of them.

I think that anything that a man makes with his own hands contains a wonderful and unrepeatable mark of his personality. The best gift, to my mind, is a DIY thing. And candies :)

PHILOSOPHY

Life is the main source to understand yourself.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Me and my husband are traveling only when we have time and money, due to we don`t have much of both we are searching for the cheapest and the most impressive and cognitive ways of travel.
Last year we made a journey from Belarus to London and back. That was the time of many discoveries. We understood that what journey lacked was the contact with people. That is why we are on couchsurfing - to visit, to make new discoveries and to share.

Interests

Art, antiques, football, cinema, talking, meeting interesting people, volunteering, writing.
I love animals, so if you have a cat or a dog you can be sure that it will be petted and fed and happy when Im around :)
