Taking a break from hosting for a bit, need to work on some things. Will come back shortly!
Travel, Love and Learn as much as possible about the world
I am very excited person; I enjoy life, new places, and new people. It is hard for me when things are the same for a long period of time, I prefer change. I am happy to experiment and believe that if you have an opportunity to try something new, you should do it. I am pretty conservative in some of the topics and ways of living though, but not judgmental. I will never tell you what to do and how to live your life (Unless you ask,then I am happy to listen and to give an advice). A lot of people have told me that I am a good listener; I value relationship the most in this life. I like to socialize and to get to know as much as possible about other people.
My favorite food is ice cream, and I also usually drink about ten cups of tea a day, or sometimes even more))
I prefer to talk less, and listen more, but when no one talks I feel responsible to fill the silence and end up talking quite a lot :)
I am always happy to help if I can.
I am an optimist; I always try to see best in people and situations. I also believe that communication is very important and can solve most problems. I choose to trust people and be open as well. I am a practicing Christian, so my philosophy goes with the Bible, I try to live up to that standard (love, do not judge, forgive, help, care about others, accept everyone), but of course I am not perfect :) And despite the fact that my faith is so important to me,I am not closed-minded and always happy to listen to and learn about other people’s beliefs (or non-beliefs) and philosophies.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I always surf, or at least hang out with the locals when I travel. Every time I go some new place, I look for someone on CS to hang out with, and always end up having a great time.
I finally can host now, and always happy to see a new personal and well-written request from a cool traveler (which almost everyone on this site is). I really do have Cs'ers in my house almost all the time right now, just as I hoped to, when I started.
All my CS experience was exceptional. In Kazakhstan I have met some amazing people from different parts of the world, who, for different reasons, came to my little industrial hometown :) I also have some surfing experience, and all my hosts were very hospitable, friendly and fun.
I just started really hosting in June, and had a crazy, busy, fun and awesome time, feeling like I live in the hostel, where people from all over the world stop by for a little bit :)
I love traveling, walking and people watching. I like reading books and talking to people, listening to their stories an experiences. I also like to go out and eat tasty food :) I love new experiences and always look for new things to try. Usually I love to work out (weight lifting and dancing are my favorite), but I get too lazy at times. Right now I am trying to get back to dancing regularly, as well as learning new types of dances. a I guess in general, people and places are two biggest interests in my life right now.
Music, Movies, and Books
I love music and like to discover bands that not to many people listen to, but have no problem with popular things as well. Shakira is always my favorite. I also like such bands as The Cat Empire and such artists as Basia Bulat, Katie Melua,Ingrid Michaelson,Ed Sheeran, Glen Hansard and many more. I also love to go to the concerts and shows.Because I just started dancing salsa and learning Spanish, I am getting more and more into the Latin music.
Movies: I like things like Butterfly effect, Love Actually, Requiem for a Dream, The Departed, Mr.Nobody, Inception and, all the movies about travelling and different places. I also like weird and creepy movies. I am also criminal TV shows freak, and a huge fan of Criminal Minds, Bones, L&O SVU, Hawaii 5-0 and etc.
I love books) read anything I can get))
As much as I cannot stand drama in real life, I absolutely love it in music, books and movies!
