About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Find out what to say when they're asking: "what is your profession?" :)

ABOUT ME

I love living here on this planet. I am married and love my husband. Usually we travel together and use this page instead of creating two separate. I work as a photographer, free-lance interpreter and own a little Internet crafts-store.

PHILOSOPHY

Best things happen not on purpose, but it is still important to dream and to make plans. I like accepting challenges and achieving goals.
In my everyday life I try to share things I have with other people, and time also. Volonteering is doing at least smth useful in our miserable lives (ha-ha!!! sounds crazy!!!) except work (for which we get money in fact).

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I don't remember really how, but I remember how I was worried about how to meet my first guest-traveler from abroad and how to make things good for him)))

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

When I am in another country I always try to meet with natives - it is the most important part of getting know the culture...
Of course for some people it is ok to live in a hotel and visit the most popular touristic places, but frankly speaking – isn't it bullshit? Sorry, didn't want to offend anybody, it just works for me.
The most I like in CS is to meet new people and to have the first hugs or handshakes with them. Here comes the feeling, when I don't know a person but we trust each other.
Another thing is saying good-bye to CS-er and realizing “Wow! I am so lucky to meet such inspiring people!”

Interests

Photographing, photographing, photographing:) painting, foreign languages,

Music, Movies & Books

I like reading, but it is hard to state the main books.
Music: Jazzmusik of different kinds, RHCP, Moby, Bob Marley, Gogol Bordello, Rammstein

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Hitch-hiking is amaizing to my mind. When I was 15-17 years old I used to travel in such a way to Crimea for many times (400-500 km), one time to St. Petersburg (1800 km) and one time to Petrozavodsk (2000 km). When I was 25 years old we tried hitch-hiking in Montenegdo and it was much fun!

Teach, Learn, Share

Couchsurfing is 100%a sharing-thing! Otherwise it can turn into free-hostels-disguasting-service. I mean that people share or take not just accomodation, but experience, time, feelings, useful knowledge (etc) too!

I can teach you: English or Russian language, writting love letters, could make a couple of nice photo-portraits of yours (probably that's the main thing:)...

I love cooking for others! In Europe they say I am good, but it is quite doubtful, however I am sure in these things: lentil-soup, spice-rise, omelets, milk-shakes, vegetable salads and some other random stuff.


What I would learn from you: some words from your native language, some recipes of your native cuisine, travel tips or funny stories from your traveling.

What I Can Share With Hosts

A smile, any kind of knowledge, anything if it is not offensive to me or people around + things mentioned above.

Countries I've Visited

Belgium, Croatia, Georgia, Germany, Montenegro, Russian Federation, Turkey, United States

Countries I've Lived In

Ukraine, United States
