About Me

Hi guys,
My name is Katya. I am originally from Moscow, Russia.
I have a degree in teaching English and German and I`ve been working as a freelance translator since 2006.
I am an active traveller, have been to 36 countries and counting. Tanzania, Sri Lanka, Costa Rica, Indonesia, Singapore, the Seychelles, Italy, St. Vincent and Grenadines, Nepal and Russian Kamchatka are among my favourites.
I'm an introvert and can be shy at times, so if you expect to see a crazy party-goer and you're looking for a company to visit clubs, sorry guys. I prefer cosy and quiet evenings, hiking, nature and intimate conversations.
Just in case it`s important to you, I`m a pescetarian (yes to fish and seafood, eggs, dairy, but no red meat and poultry), a non-smoker and a non-drinker. I can call myself a foodie and I love the Mediterranean, Georgian and Indian food.
I love nature and animals, I`m a dog person.
I`m very into art and photography, healthy lifestyle and freediving.
I can`t imagine my life without my friends, sun, ocean, music, honesty and freedom.
