About Me

***NOT AVAILABLE FROM 14/3 TO 9/5***

Hello there! Before telling about myself I'd like to talk about a few things. I'm an accommodating host, but to make sure we have a great experience together, I do have a couple of guidelines to follow. I only accept ONE guest at a time, and it's important that you have a working phone with a local SIM or a data plan. This will help us communicate more efficiently, and ensure that we avoid any no-shows, as I had in the past.

I am a freelance translator specializing in video games, which I also enjoy playing. In my free time, I love attending live music concerts, trying new recipes, and observing insects and arthropods. I have a taste for the unusual and enjoy a good black humor joke.

I used to live in Tbilisi, Georgia, but due to the pandemic, I am now back in my hometown. I long to return, but due to recent events (a massive influx of Russians and the inflation that followed), I'm not entirely certain when and if I'll be able to return. While I miss it dearly, I'm happy to be able to offer my couch to travelers looking to explore Milan and get some less "mainstream" bits of advice on the city.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I have endless strange and wonderful stories from my CouchSurfing experiences. From the time a guest tattooed me, to the time someone, in two consecutive days, built simulacra of a person in my room using random objects (got photo evidence), to the countless amazing meals and conversations shared with fellow travelers. CouchSurfing has introduced me to some of the most interesting and genuine people I've ever met.

You might have noticed a prevalence of female references on my page. This is because I have more female friends in real life and my hosting style reflects this. However, I am open to hosting guys as well, provided that they don't engage in typical locker room subjects like football and cars.


If you share my love for black humor, red wine, and dark music, we will certainly get along well. And if not, that's okay too - just bring your cooking skills along, and we'll have a great time together.

Feel free to check out my socials, but please don't contact me through them - I may miss your message.

Music, Movies, and Books


Books: well, many. I'm mostly into horror/sci-fi, but also comedy. I love alternate history. You know, the "what if..." stuff.

Movies: let's talk about this.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Witnessed the final days of Czechoslovakia's (not yet Czech Republic) Velvet Revolution in 1989.
Watched the 1999 total solar eclipse in Salzburg.
Went through the Nineties without being a Nirvana fan.
Tidied up my spice cabinet (SEVERAL TIMES!)
Moved to Georgia to learn Georgian.
Moved to Georgia to learn Georgian AGAIN.
Survived pandemic IN ITALY.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you:

- to cook a risotto and to make tiramisu.
- to say "starch" in Lithuanian.
- to tell a female from a male praying mantis.
- to pronounce ყ (a Georgian letter, kinda like stepping on a toad).

I'm willing to learn recipes and anything you can teach.

What I Can Share with Hosts

If I have time (i.e. I am not working) I can show you around, cook something Italian or Georgian, the usual stuff hosts do. I can also give you a less stereotyped view of Italy. Something a bit beyond the "best country-best food-best coffee-best lovers" predictable litany.
