About Me

CURRENT MISSION

...thinking

ABOUT ME

We are a spontaneous and a bit disorganized international couple living in Brussels. We like drinking coffee, discussing, watching old movies, cooking, travelling and going out.

PHILOSOPHY

"The people, who define themselves are bordered - O. Wild"

Masha: If the perfect philosophy would have been existing, I would have been left nothing to study!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Right now we can not host people, because we moved and our current flat is very small :-(

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

We had wonderful experience in Turkey and Italy... Couchsurfing is a good way to find new friends and in unknown places. We organize sometimes Russian-speaking and French-speaking aperitivi events.

Colas likes skateboarding - it's his big hobby. So he can show you some skating spots in the city ;-) He also likes programming, computer graphics and statistics but does not consider himself being geek. He also likes movies and cooking and always has some ideas for filming a movie, but does not film them because he is not a movie director. He likes listening to trip-hop and breakbeats pretty loud.

Masha has grown up in a family of musician and was condemned to musical education childhood. She did not like piano lessons, but she likes troubling your ears with a collection of strange records. She also likes dancing and painting, which she has dropped now because of her studies. She studied ancient history (with a particular interest in hellenism) and philosophy and do not ask her now as who she would like to work in the future... She reads a lot of books and likes visiting interesting art exibitions and art galleries. Right now she is a Comic student at St. Luc.
