About Me

I don't know anything about thins world, but I'm trying to understand it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

As for me, the best way of traveling is "wild" traveling, without any plans, booked tours and hotels. You can't understand country, it's culture, traditions and mentality, sitting in the bus and just staring out the window. Our world is larger than a hotel's room. And people in this beautiful world is the most interesting part for me. Because of my occupation, I have to talk to many people daily. Sometimes people are freaky, sometimes they are too boring, but all of them are beautiful and unique. Exploring another country is impossible without exploring its nation, without new connections. That's why I am on couchsurfing.
