About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Travel the world.

ABOUT ME

I'm a newbie traveler) I've visited my first country abroad in 2008 and right now the count is slowly climbing up to twenty. I'm a calm guy, usually a little bit shy with new people, but I really like to chat and have good laugh (and a beer, from time to time =) ).

I tend to avoid conflict whenever possible and I'm trying to become more organized (by organizing stuff - like trips or something)

I'm into cycling. Sometimes it may seem that cycling is the only thing I do (or talk about) - but that's not true, trust me)

PHILOSOPHY

Coffee is the best thing ever invented.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I'm kinda new to CS - I've never hosted and I've surfed only a couple of times =( But I do attend Moscow meet-ups every Tuesday.

From time to time I organize small weekend cycling events in Moscow Region for my friends (as we train up for our trips) and fellow couchsurfers.

Unfortunatly I can't host now but things will change for the better in a year or so.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've met lots of awesome people at weekly Tuesday meet-ups that we have in Moscow and I really like it.

Interests

I'm interested in all man-powered ways of travel - cycling, hiking, mountaineering, paddling - that sort of stuff. I also really like taking pictures (but I'm usually pretty slow with processing them, so if you want photos I took, wait a bit and poke me from time to time)

Last year I've bought a bicycle and right now I'm really into touring cycling. So long I've only been to Eastern Europe in 2011 and I'm going on a beautiful route in Norway this year (2012), but I want to do more .

I'm planning a big three-month trip in 2013 and maybe after that I'll consider cycling round the globe (that's my dream)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've cycled from Praha to Budapest and I've climed Tian-Shan mountains - these were the best trips I ever had in my life.
