Join Couchsurfing to see Evgeny’s full profile.
Dear Couchsurfer, please read the profile very carefully (including the "home" section)
Make sure to mention in your requests if you are ok with all the things mentioned in the home section.
Don't just say "I'm fine with everything" but mention each point individually, please.
Well, it is hard to talk about yourself without being subjective, so I think I will just enumerate the mere facts about me:
1) I was born in the USSR, but grew up in Russia, live in Canada;
2) I used to be an English teacher;
3) I am married to a wonderful person.
As for the rest, I think at this point you can read the references I have received from hosting and surfing and get a somewhat objective picture of me)).
I can ONLY host for maximum 2-3 nights.
I can host ONLY 1 person.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I heard about CS on TV back in 2010 (yeah, I watched TV back then) and became interested in it. CS is a really fantastic thing. Thanks to CS I've found lots of friends in Canada and in Europe. Several years after I had learned about CS I still think it's an amazing community to help the people you meet. I've surfed and hosted a lot and I really enjoyed it. The people I've met and the friends I've made are all fantastic people. It's cool to be able to share your experiences, your travel stories with people from all over the world.
Oh, this is a very old description, but I will keep it))))
Here is some update of my ideas))):
So, up to now, after 10 years on couchsurfing I am still in the same tune of sharing and helping.
Unfortunately, there are a lot of people who take couchsurfing just as a means of a free place to sleep, which it is, in fact, and I am not denying it, but it is not a hotel or a hostel.
I have beed receiving so many "copypaste" request recently, where people just say: "Hey, what's up? Got a couch for a night or two?" As I have already mentioned for me couchsurfing is not just a free place to stay.
Thus any so called "copypaste" request will be refused. Try to make your request personal.
So what I mean by personal request:
1) it should contain the real name of a person you are requesting to stay with;
2) I expect you to read my profile and tell me why you want to stay at my place and not somebody else's;
3) you should mention if you are ok with the arrangements in the house (read the "home section");
5) the rest is up to you.
I love snowboarding and every summer I am looking forward to winter. In summer I do some cycling and recently I have started trampoline jumping and I love it.
I can say I love languages, but I guess it is not really a hobby, but a job.
Music, Movies, and Books
I don't have favorite music if I like a song I don't care about its style or whatever.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I think that the most amazing thing I've ever seen was The Grand Canyon. I'll never forget this view.
Crossed Russia by train following the Trans-Siberian railway.
I met a lot of friends couchsurgfing in Europe during a 40-day journey.
