About Me


ha ha....I'm no longer look like the guy in the picture


The Zen Dog by Edward Monkton
"He knows not where he's going For the Ocean will decide,
It's not the destination, It's the glory of THE RIDE!"

Soo I was born in the Urals in Russia and since the age of 2 I live in Israel, in a small and ancient town in the Galille, After the army I embarked in a journey, took a plane to Manchester and hitchhiked and couchsurfed all the way to southeast asia.

I was already on my way back when I discovered that I don't want to, so I stayed in chengdu to study Chinese and to enjoy china as much as I can, wish me luck :)

other then that..

I like to hear stories of any kind and tell them, I like cycling, hiking, talking, listening, reading, sleeping, Being awake, Being half awake, I like to be excited by others and much more staff,

"Living on Earth is expensive, but it does include a free trip around the sun every year"

Always Smile :) Greg.


"Seven to eleven is a huge chunk of life, full of dulling and forgetting. It is fabled that we slowly lose the gift of speech with animals, that birds no longer visit our windowsills to converse. As our eyes grow accustomed to sight they armour themselves against wonder" L. cohen
