About Me

I like foreign languages and cultures. I spent one year studying in Taipei, one year in Beijing and three months in Sakarya ( a small town near Istanbul). I was born in the heartland of Russia - the Urals, the place where the West meets the East in the intersection of different religions, cultures and languages.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I need to spend several days as part of my internship at the OECD (Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development). Since I do not know anybody from Paris, I thought that using couchsurfing would be a nice opportunity to find new friends and get acquainted with local culture.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

At the age of 14 I took the Transibirian Express to Vladivostok solely by myself. It took about 5 days to get to the final destination. I met dozens of people on the train, saw all major landmarks of the Siberia on the way to the Russian Far East from a train window. After five days on a train it was quite relaxing to finally step down on the ground in Vladivostok. It was also the first day when I saw the ocean in my life.
