About Me


Traveling through the CIS, Europe, Middle East, Iran, Africa....


I travel to see people, places and things in that order. I participate in the Couchsurfing project in order to meet with people from different places and backgrounds as that tends to be the most memorizing parts of my journeys.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
