About Me


Find joy in simple things


Lost in Iceland, born in Russia, travelling around the world (well almost)...I like languages, countries and people - active people and those who are not scared to step out of masses...I´d like to believe I am one of them, independent, straightforward and a bit of a dreamer...


Find what I am good at through trying what I am bad at. Shape my personality to be the person peple enjoy to be around and enjoy to be around people. Be courageous enough to get experiences that at later age will make me wonder if it really happend :)

Life is wonderful...and short, no time for waste - every moment is precious, every monment can be lived with happiness.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I´ve been hosting people through Esperanto community (we had a language to unite us) for many years; I liked meeting new people and decided to continue through CS.


I have been in one of the Couch Surfing parties here in Reykjavik, met some nice people there that put me into thinking of joining as well...Since then I hosted and been hosted a great many times. Amazing experiences so far.


Photography, motivation (what motivates people to be or do whatever they are doing), languages, jogging (I am planning to run the whoele marathon at some point, hopefully in New York, travelling, getting to know people and myself... reading(I have done speedreading, since I always get fascinated by bookstores and get way too many books which usually stay untouched).
