Hi. I'm Kristina, originally from a little beautiful country between Europe and Asia (1) which is the only remaining state from Babylonian Map of the World (2) and the first state to adopt Christianity as a state religion (3).
One period of my life I used to be communicative, however things change :) During university studies one of my jobs dealt with people (looots of people) from different background, stratum, age etc. So, to put it short, since then, I've started to appreciate being all alone, and to some extent have forgotten the skills of making friends easily. However from 7 bln population there are surely many (one of them can be you) who have some similarities with me (that's nice) or differences (that's nicer) and with whom this special chemistry is easily created. In this case I will welcome you with whole my warmth (though my hands and feet are always cold) and will try to do my best to comfort you.
I enjoy traveling. From different types of tourism I enjoy community based tourism in rural areas. In urban areas I enjoy shadowing one person, i.e. start the day with him/her, eat, go to his/her workplace , pick up the kids from kindergarten, go to cinema, bar, park with him/her. Though I highly value and respect above (almost) everything local history and culture, I cannot stand cultural-historical tourism, but rather I prefer to stroll in the neighborhoods. I have "3 musts" when visiting abroad. So my "3 musts" are: taking public transportation which are most commonly used in that specific country, tasting some of their national dish and visiting their parliament.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Laying on my back in the sea in the evening, listening to my own breathing, water waves, mystic under-water voices, watching the sky and birds, tilting a bit back my head to see the picks of trees in the beach.
