About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Be myself

ABOUT ME
Finally boarders are open again and I can travel! My first EUropean travel after Covid is planned for August 16 and I wanna visit Berlin for one week, Budapest for some days and Bucharest for a week. Looking for hosts in those lovely cities.

Young, intelligent, smiling, open-minded girl. Would like to meet people of different cultures.

PHILOSOPHY

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. A person is known by the company he keeps. A rolling stone gathers no moss.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I'd like to show my native city Minsk around when you have a chance to visit it.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Already 10 years enjoying it and not even one day regretting.

Interests

cinema, book reading, music, live concerts, ballet, dances, making fun, cooking for somebody and with friends, red wine drinking, exchange of postcards (yes i love written cards, it's not old-fashioned), discovering new countries (my big wish is to attend +100 countries till the end of my days, so far I am one third closer to this goal), riding my bike and learning more about Minsk and surroundings.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

From the latest - observing sunrise in Cappadocia from the hot air balloon at the height of 1,000 m and looking at mountains all around!
2 weeks ride on house on wheels (RV) along 3 states (Ca, Az, Nd) to see scenic road along Californian coast line, celebrate New year in Las Vegas, visit the biggest sea aquarium in the word in San Diego, the Death Valley and just admire the nature and animals.
The Northern Lights in Iceland, Flying in air tube, The Great Wall in Beijing, Dubai city, paragliding in Switzerland and whole world under your feet. Beauty of Norwegian fjords. Stockholm city and flying huge owl over me in Skansen, "newly born" experience in Copenhagen (if you know what I am hinting at), panoramic view and sunset from TV tower in Kuala Lumpur, touching a peacock.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you some Russian and Belarusian expressions and cook together delicious international dishes.
