About Me

Hello, visitor!
I love travelling and finding adventures, thats why I am here, I guess :)

Originally I am from Crimea, Ukraine. 🇺🇦
But currently I live in Lisbon, Portugal.

As everyone here I love travelling, also my passion is music - I don’t play anything, but I love going to the concerts and festivals and often my trips are planed around a festival. My profession is event planning (dreaming to organize a music festival, something like Glastonbury haha).

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I believe that meeting people is one of the most important parts of exploring the world. Through my experience on couchsurfing I have met so many amazing people, who made those trip really special.
I also travel on my own sometimes, so couchsurfing is a great way to make new friends on the road.
To sum up, now I even cant imagine planning a trip without opening couchsurfing, even if I dont need a host. Regular tourism feels a bit boring :)
