About Me

[This was written in 2010. I NEED TO UPDATE IT!!]

Languages, Locura, Livelihood, Location and Love!


I enjoy learning other languages, writing and meeting new people who inspire me. I feel most alive when I dance salsa and bachata - when I dance it, I feel that's all I need in my life, and then I realize that it's not. People say that I'm a romantic, others say I'm too enigmatic, I feel I'm an open book but just quite a long one, perhaps a Russian one. I'm older than when I started Couchsurfing and starting to want to settle down and stop travelling, but somehow work, love and life hasn't allowed it. I'll probably keep travelling forever, or for as long as it affords something good to me and to those I encounter.


My philosophy is changing everyday. Every person I meet helps me change...and makes me more legendary.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

[This was written in 2010. I NEED TO UPDATE IT!!]

Travelled a lot, and I love languages and other cultures.


Hosted. lots of meet-ups...Didn't really think to do it when I was travelling before and so I'm yet to be hosted. That'll change on my next world voyage to distant lands.

I've been going to the CS meetings in Geneva, Vienna, London, Moscow, Petersburg and Lyon for the past few years and it's a fairly central part of my social life.
