Join Couchsurfing to see Igor’s full profile. It’s free!
I am a freediving/divind instructor: www.markin.info. Being mad about all kind of outdoor activities: hitch-hiking, rafting, kayaking, hiking, paragliding, speleology, diving etc. I often organize some incentive tours in Ukraine, Poland, Eastern and Central Europe and Balkans - mainly rafting and biking: www.raftingukraine.info
Possessing an 8-sits minivan I often course between Warsaw and Lviv - two cities where I spend the most of my time if I am not traveling or working abroad.
http://www.lvivguide.info - a travel guide about my lovely home city Lviv. I created this site in 2010 so now it looks a bit old but still informative enough.
The was a period of time when with my friends together we managed to organize 4 great travel projects that involved sponsors, media-partners, press-conferences etc:
2004 - China, Tibet, Nepal, India.
2005 - Armenia, Georgia, Turkey.
2006 - Kazakhstan, Kirghizia, Uzbekistan, Syria.
2007 - "Rocks and Caves of Carpathians"
Whenever I hit the road I am usually making professional photos and writing a kind of traveler's blog (www.markin.info) which sometimes get published in local newspapers and magazines. In 2005 my book was published (in Ukrainian).
