About Me

I've always loved travelling and now it is possible for me to see all of the world beyond my city's countryside. Since I was 11, I was camping on the lakes with my school teacher and a classmates. But than she transferred, so i could only travel to my countryside house and surrounding lands of my city. I really love Saint-Petersburg, but sometimes I have desperate need for extending the boundaries of my world, so I go

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Its a perfect way to meet interesting people, learn more about the culture of country i visit and find out about some places which not marked on the tourist map.


I am deeply in love with the languages, especially Japanese. This is something that makes me to breathe. I am sort of obsessed with it and my eyes probably burning like hundreds of bonfires when i make an encounter with it. I love Japanese culture and history as well.

I love literature, i can fall in love with the words and phrases. I love art, contemporary and ancient, renaissance and impressionism. Also, i'm interested in evolution theory. And now i fell for the philosophy.
