About Me

I'm a survival artist with ukrainian roots raised in Berlin. When I moved here in 1989 I experienced the most exciting time in the 90ies. Berlin is having so many faces and it's an interesting city, but I'm always happy if I get the chance to travel.

Six years ago I became a blogger and now I discovered the "travel niche". People love articles about traveling. So currently I thought: "Why not making a Couchsurfing experiment and blogging about it and inspire people to travel the not common way?"... So yes, I decided to report about my travel adventures (don't worry if you don't want to be on pictures, I won't force you! ;)).

But I want to find out as many stories as possible, exchange stories with people and learning about their view on life.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I was a Couchsurfing Pioneer almost 13 years ago (unfortunately my old account was closed because I wasn't using it for a while!).

I'm a free spirit and I always was loved to explore the world (no matter how much money I had, I made it work!). My best friend and I had a huge apartment when we were 17 years old. The 3rd bed room was empty and back then there weren't so much tourists in Berlin. We loved meeting new people and when we heard about Couchsurfing, we decided immediately that we wanted to give travelers the chance to live at our house!
