About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Reach enlightenment through balanced cooperation with people and world

ABOUT ME

addicted to communication, traveling, and new experiences. Sometimes a bit chaotic, trying to make a nice mix of not giving a hug* to some weird stuff happening around and at the same time being responsible for really important things. Like: Who cares, if the weather is a disaster? I took my umbrella in case of that stuff anyway.

PHILOSOPHY

Love without a demand.
Intention without desire.

ok, everything from above is from 2012, and I'd like to keep it here in order to have a place where I could look back at my persona.
Now in 2022, I'm less of a troll with fewer addictions. But I still love exploring the world and people's fates and interconnectedness. Philosophy principles that I've stated are not easily achievable but are still a sort of a dream approach to life for me.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I live in my own flat in Minsk now, so basically it's possible ot host anybody. Problem is that it is just one room flat. But I laso have an inflatable matrass and folding bed if anybody's coming from CS. Plus, I can find friends who might be able to provide accomodation for more people in certain occasions.

And of course i can help with a little trip around the city or some information about it.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Well, my friend is signed up for Couchsurfing for a year or more and in april 2012 he was supposed to host 5 people from Poland. Unfortunatelly, he had a horrible strike of his Astma, no posibility to express himself clearly, coughing every 2 minutes. So, I met the guys, helped them to buy food and get to the place, entertained them for some time and made sure everything was going to be fine with their departure.
I've myself had amazing experience of being hosted in a van in Berlin and in a wonderful flat in Oslo with hosts that broadened my ideas and views on world in a very nice way.

Interests

Fond of travelling, doing different kinds of volunteer work. Can't imagine my life without music, books. Also, love games: board, computer, card games help me to get rid of boredom sometimes. Love to create live action role-playing games or some activities for groups of people.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I'm not a good cook but I can cook a couple of things from native cuisine like potato pancakes) I can wash the dishes, listen to you, hear you and share your pain in order to soothe it in you (i don't know but a lot of people come into my life for that, as I notice), also tell you about countries I've been to, stories. I can also share a moment of silence or meditate with you.
