ABOUT ME
On Couchsurfing last 10 years and in Italy last 9 years 🙂

I was born in beautiful Baku, raised in Russia (Moscow) and lived some period in Greece, Turkey and now in Italy.

In general, people say I am easy-going and open-minded person, and I tend to believe this :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I am glad to help. We can meet and I can show you the city around, I can also try to host you if suitable for my work schedule (since I have started working it became more difficult, was hosting a lot more often when was a student).

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I like the CS and the way it provides the cultural exchange between people.

Interests

Travel, books, poetry, science, technology, mountain bikes and bike trails
