About Me


live and learn

My job is my hobby. Kids give so much joy back) So I can say I'm one of that happy people who don't work coz they do what they like instead)
love my friends
love to dance
love wind and sun
I study in a medical college as well.
One year of my life I spent in the Netherlands being an au-pair for 2 super cool kids of 11 ad 14 years old.
I think that travelling gives you chance to take a look at your life from different point of view, to check your priorities and values and to find new ways.


Don't allow your soul to be lazy.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Time to time show new places to travelers, or take part in CS events. Would love to meet some couchsurfers during my trips as well.


I participated in some local CS events. The most bright one is of course Carnaval in Maastricht and area!!! CSers made it unforgettable!!! I shall keep a warm feelings about it for a long time!))
Was hosted by a great people in Luxemburg and Moscow


I enjoy spending time on a nature: cycling, swimming, hiking, tenting or whatever.

Depends on mood (classic, some russian rock, live guitar, so on)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Help kids to speak correctly. Specially that time when I taught a girl to pronounce correctly the name of her grandma who was on the last stage of a cancer and had a dream to hear her granddaughter calling her in a right way before she ll die. Nothing special but everyone was crying.

Teach, Learn, Share

Can help you during your trip to Russia with some life hacks.
Would love to learn how to cook Indian chicken, or to listen some interesting stories about your trips.
