About Me

Ardent fan of backpacking and exploring new cities, countries, and continents. Going to see everything this planet has to offer. :)

I like people who have lifelong plans. For example, I'm going to visit every country around the globe, climb on the highest mount on every continent (so-called Seven Summits list) and still hope to become a space tourist when I'll be old. What about you?

The boring part of my life is being a front-end developer: I craft pretty websites and useful mobile apps. The magic happens when you understand that your work helps people not waste their time on some shit instead of having a good time (like standing in queues to buy tickets or pay taxes, visiting tourist centers, ordering smth by phone, etc). Another advantage of my profession is the ability to work remotely from any place which has internet (in North Korea I had to ask for PTO).

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm passionate about diving into other cultures and understanding fundamentally new ways of thinking. There is spectacular diversity of lifestyles among different peoples, which is even more impressive considering the fact that we all are solving the same life tasks.

Every travel is a lesson for me. And Couchsurfing is my way to find a teacher in every country on this planet.
