About Me

We are a couple from Ukraine, who got the Fulbright scholarship 2 years ago to get a Master's degree at LSU. I finally graduated in May 2017 and now am just enjoying my time traveling across the US.

We've arrived to the USA in 2015 and had a great experience so far! Unfortunately, Couchsurfing isn't very popular in Ukraine, so we decided to have it all while being in the US.

We've been to New York, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, spent entire winter in Chicago and summer in Alaska right near Denali National Park. We do love traveling, however, we love meeting new people even more!

Our first experience was with Charles in New York who lived in an apartment right near the Central Park. Unfortunately, first experiences are not always great, but when he told us that the plans had changed and he could not host us for the first day of our stay, we were really lucky to meet Ricky, who kindly accepted our last minute request! We really had great time together.

Then we met a great family of musicians in San Antonio and spent wonderful 4 days in their "weird" house! They were one of the most interesting people we've ever met.

Mardi Gras in New Orleans is crazy. We lost our hope to got there, but then we find Eddie, who was just the BEST host we've ever had. He showed us all the city and that's when we understood what is a true COUCHSURFING experience. People helping people, people getting known people. He was really great, and I really want to take him to Ukraine as he was interested in Ukrainian girls and culture (well, probably, he was more interested in girls).

It's not the free couch that we are looking, but a REAL couchsurfing experience!

Thank you people, you are just awesome!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I am working on my web-service for children who want to learn English. We are providing the users with gamified learning opportunities with the background information about the USA. In fact, the users are not only learning English but also making some kind of virtual journey around the States.

That's why I am trying to see as many different US cities as possible in order to get a lot of useful content.


Soccer (yep, that's what we do in Europe), traveling, programming, web design, learning languages, meeting new people and listening for good music are just a few of them.

Music, Movies, and Books

I am fond of jazz. That's why I am currently living near New Orleans.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I terminated my run for the presidency of the United States for now, therefore, I have no need or obligation to advertise the amazing things I have done in my life.

However, a road trip from Seattle to Los Angeles via Highway 101 and Highway 1 was a truly amazing thing I've done

Teach, Learn, Share

I can tell you lots of thing about Europe and especially Ukraine (there are lots of rumors and speculations about it lately, I can give you the real view).

And I can definetely teach you something about online advertising, including Facebook ads, Search Engine Optimization, building Wordpress sites and many other things.

What I Can Share with Hosts

We're travel hackers and I can tell you about the ways to accumulate millions of points and miles for different airline and hotel programs
