About Me


make new friends and have fun!


I'm easygoing.
Grown up in a small town in Crimea then moved here, in Saint-Petersburg.
Have lots of ideas and try to be smart, learning all the time. I love to read, saw plenty of movies, u can find me easily somewhere in center with big cup of coffee reading or writing letter.
More introvert, but when I feel free with people - can do some stupid funny things)


Mindfulness and open heart. Be kind and it will turn back.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


When I have time - I can help you with a couch. Also I can be a cool guide through the city, bars, restaurants and.. of course shopping =)
