About Me

Howdy! I'm Anna and there are two great passions I devote my life to - dancing and travelling. I love exploring new places but I'm proud of my own country and its legacy as well so it's always a big pleasure for me to show Minsk to guests from all over the world. If you need an enthusiastic guide you won't make a mistake picking me =)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I try to host as many people as possible because the reward for it is priceless: amazing stories about incredible adventures and unbelievable travel experiences! Even if I can't provide a couch I'm always eager to meet up with travellers from wherever and show them around or at least to hang out for a coffee.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've hosted a couple of amazing travellers and I loved it immensely! I've surfed a couple of times as well and I'm not going to stop!:D

Interests

No doubt it's travelling! When I have a chance to travel I make the most of it because I love meeting new people, learning their philosophies and lifestyles, studying new languages and cultures.

Secondly, I've been dancing for the biggest part of my life participating in international championships, taking workshops, performing and teaching others. So I'm kind of stage person;)

What else? I adore live performances and festivals where you can get soo energized! Besides, I'm a figure skating fan XD (Brian Joubert, tu es mon héros!^^)

Music, Movies & Books

as a (romantic) girl I'm in love with Titanic
as a travel lover I adore Eurotrip
as Luc Besson's fan I love Leon, the 5th element, Taxi, Wasabi etc.

among books I prefer world classics, very simple =)

no real preferences in music but definitely something inspiring!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

- took part in the World Hip-Hop Championaships 2007 in Germany, which triggered my passion for travelling;
- took a mud bath;
- stepped on glowing algae;
- went to the European Figure Skating Championships to support my favourite athlete and got to meet him in person <3
- staged an anti-corruption play alongside with 35 students from 23 countries to perform in front of another 400+ participants of ISFiT in Norway!
- participated in international student weeks/festivals in Belgrade (Serbia), Timisoara (Romania), Trondheim (Norway), Ilmenau (Germany).

Teach, Learn, Share

I can dance with you! Whatever! Cha-cha-cha, samba, rumba, tango, waltz, disco, jazz, hip-hop, house... or you can teach me something else!

I love singing as well and try to learn the guitar in my free time so if you can play I can certainly lend it to you so that you could boast of your skills.

What I Can Share With Hosts

My hospitality, my smile and my views on life - what else do you need when you are travelling?
