About Me

Since there are some issues with CS and I don't get notifications in time. Contact me on instagram if it is an emergency. IG: kovit27
For me is much easier to host people with last minute request, as usually I am never sure where I am gonna be in a week and cannot promise if I will be able to host those future days you may arrive.


Travel the world, meet new people, learn more about life, locals and their cultures.


I like to meet new people and learn something from them and I think that the best way to do that is traveling the world without following the touristic paths, on any transport in any way, the more unusual the better.

I am open minded, vegetarian and try to be eco friendly.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

During my hitchhiking trip from Lviv to Rome in 2011, I discovered couchsurfing and since then do not travel without. Here I found new friends and wonderful experiences.

Music, Movies, and Books

I prefer music that is pleasant to hear
does not matter the genre
I like movies, after which you are left with emotions
I love read books, specially fantasy

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I have travelled for three years by hitchhike all around Europe, mostly without money, visited 36 countries, climbed some mountains, survived in Iceland without tent, money and a ticket back.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach some ukarainian, italian or russian words. I like to cook so I would like to know new recipes of vegeterian food and I can teach some national dishes from countries where I have been living.
I'm a hitchhiker and I can teach how to do that:)
