About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To find my place in this World

ABOUT ME

5,5 years ago I packed my stuff and left home on a journey to find myself and my place in this world. During this time I'd traveled to seven countries (in 2 of them, I'd lived). But still I haven't found what I was looking for. So the journey continues.

PHILOSOPHY

- What does not kill me, makes me stronger.
- Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution.
- Looking at a puddle one can see only a puddle, another one can see stars.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I don't have a lot of cs-exps. But this little ex-s had been really positive. First time I'd heard about this site from my Brazilian friend in Moscow. It was so new and exciting that I decided to find out some more about cs. I went to one of Moscow's cs parties - it was incredible! It was first time in my life when I saw so many persons from all over the world!
Another important experience of my life, which was connected with this site, happened on my 2nd year in France. It happened so what I was almost left on the street without a roof over the head in Paris. And for that time I knew only two peoples from the cs in Paris, but one of them wasn't in the country and another one I saw in real life maybe 1 or 2 times before, but I called to him, explained him my story, and he helped me: I'd been living at his place for 1 week, he tried to help me to find a way out from my situation (to find an accommodation, a job, to prepare my documents for the visa and etc.). I'm very grateful to him for his help and his tenderness.
