About Me


Currently I don't accept Couchsurfers without a number of references / a complete profile. Very sad to take these measures but recently I have had a couple of negative experiences which I try to avoid as much as possible.




After being away on CS for a while due to traveling and other reasons, I am really willing to connect again and meet up. Couchsurfing is too nice to ignore for a long time.


Live and let live

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


For the moment, just by being a good host to you (Russian style).


People who host on the couch surfing project are usually those who give without expecting something back immediately. In order to be a CS member you must be open, unafraid and willing to communicate; I like such people and this site connects them.


Nature, small scale and sustainable living closely related to nature, simple life, squating and hitchhiking, yoga, football and other sports, city life (just the nights), festivals

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done


Teach, Learn, Share

I would be interested to learn anything about small scale and sustainable living, learn how to play the accordeon and how to live and survive in nature for extended periods of time.

The thing that I could probably teach you is web design.

Countries I’ve Lived In

India, Ireland, Russian Federation, Viet Nam
