About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Be the goodwill ambassador of badass

ABOUT ME

I like exploring this crazy world of ours. I like seeing how other people live. There is something that makes my heart beat faster when I have a ticket in my hand.
I am pretty simple, really. I think the best way to enjoy life is not to worry too much. I don't like pretentious people or those who think too much about their public image. It's no fun trying to be someone else for someone else.

PHILOSOPHY

What mama said: "Don't buy shoes you can't run in."

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

When I lived in Ukraine, I gave people who wanted to see Crimea a place to stay, some food and the 50-kopek tour of the city. I´ve always been the hostess, never the hosted.Lately, my living situation hasn't permitted me to host people but I am active in the group in Barranquilla where I live and I have attended meetings in diffrent cities where I traveled and have always had fun.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I signed up for CS because I felt isolated in my far away but beautiful corner of Ukraine and I wanted visitors. I can say every experience has been positive and I have met lots of cool people and been able to show them great places off the beaten path.In my later travels, I have met SO many great people every place I have gone.  I like to call this a facebook for interesting people.

Interests

old school punk rock/hardcore, documentary/foreign/independent films, travel, languages, media and how not to be controlled by it, burritos,beer, bicycles, photography, SCUBA diving, tap and salsa dancing

Music, Movies & Books

I like Madonna and the Minutemen. I enjoy the filmic works of Kieslowski and movies with Lindsay Lohan in them. I read chick lit and Gogol. I don't believe in judging people by what they listen to/watch/read. We all like different stuff for different reasons.
