About Me


make new friends and have fun!


NB I live in Barcelona till 10th of January 2014 :)
Decided not to change my place of being, to let me be verified!

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)


help each other. be kind and it will turns back

Why I'm on Couchsurfing
