About Me

Hello! I from Russia, and more exactly from Siberia. I travel with my girl Angelica (26).

After graduation, we decided that it was too early to start working. We want to travel and see the world now, and not postpone it till later. Since then it may not happen! We are open to everything new and will be very happy to meet new people and immerse ourselves in different cultures.

Brief our history:
-At first we traveled only in Russia.
-Then we were in Turkey.
-After that we were volunteers and traveled around the UK and Ireland for 5 months.
-Then we worked in China for 6 months.
-We saved up money and went on a round-the-world trip. in 7 months we traveled 13 countries using hitchhiking, couchsurfing and workaway.info. With a budget of 9$ for two people per day :D Then the corona virus came, countries began to close their borders and we returned home.

P.S. in photos there is a map with the route
