About Me


make this world a better place better


I'm happy) My name is Alex and I'm open-minded, nice and friendly person in general. I love traveling, it's one of my main passions. I've been in 30 countries so far and really enjoyed these trips, but still sure that best adventures are in the future.) But even dreaming about new trips and countries I live in the present moment and enjoy every minute. It's quite easy to do in Barcelona - the city of my dream - where I study and live now. Besides traveling, i'm interested in art, ecological and charity projects. I would love to know more about creative communities and sustainable development and work in this area in the future (I did it before but now I make a break to do MA in International relations). I enjoy meeting new interesting people and think that couchsurfing is the right place for it. I'm easy going and it's quite easy for me to become friends with people who have common interests, ideas and ideals (or quite different, but interesting for me). i have my dream destinations - I really want to go to Madagaskar and make a big great trip around South America .) While I live in Barcelona i would be happy to help you with advices about it and if you are interested in Russia (Moscow or any other places) do not hesitate to drop me a message. I also would be happy to share the information I have about other countries from my travel list


Every minute is unique so it's important to appreciate it and enjoy. All that you give becoming yours (in sense that is so nice to share). Actually, when I met buddhist philosophy for the first time I thought - Yes, it is really what I was thinking about.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm often hosting CS people in the flat in Barcelona, but not always as my friends and I often have someone from friends or relatives visit. But I try to host people who need it and who seems nice and interesting and for me


All CS people I have been hosted in my flat in Barcelona so far were great)) I never couchserfed myself, but really want to try it during my trips in Italy, Spain and Portugal this spring


Life)) Traveling, art, yoga, good books and movies, finding new interesting places in my city and other cities, sitting on the seaside, sunrises, hugs, I like to inspire others, generate ideas and do something good that makes someone smiles

Music, Movies, and Books

Bulgakov, Pedro Almodovar, F. Fellini, Tim Burton, Julio Médem

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I went to Africa as I had the dream to help African children, it was really great experience, one of the best in my life that changed its completely.
Sunrise at the volcano Bromo in Indonesia
Barcelona. Every day here is amazing
Dancing all night at the roofs of Istanbul, and Bosphorus - the place where I always want to be back one day
Cuba with all its music, colors, people and their kind smiles, old-facioned cars, and amazing blue sky. Half of my heart I left in Cuba
Himalay mountains in Nepal, meditation all night on the Buddhanath stupa with my amazing friend - tibetan yogin
Horse riding at the sunrise in the ruins of Palmira in Siriya, it was amazing even if i was about to fall down and break myself when the house rushed back to the stable
