About Me

I'm a student of Erasmus Mundus Master Program living in Glasgow right now. So, I'm making some science, learning scottish and trying to understand how this whole system works.

P.S. The strange hat on my head (on one of the photos) is so-called hood, in other words chaperon. Historical contraption.
And yes, I smoke pipe.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To meet local people and plunge into the country with the help of their eyes. Not only seeing the country but feeling as well.

Interests

Reading books, playing tin whistle and learning guitar, science, role-playing games (LARP), archery, travelling, skiing, snooker, alcohol, playing computer and board games.
To be more specific: Heroes of Might&Magic III/ 3.58 and Starcraft - my favorite among computer ones. I used to play World of Warcraft for 5 years on official and now quite nostalgic about this.
Board games: backgammon, chinese checkers, cards, domino, Munchkin.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Once I was galloping on a horse barebacked down the hill and wasn't falling for whole three minutes.

I got lost on the top of the Esya mountain (Reykjavik) in complete dense cloud for 5 hours, but I found the way back.
I survived in Iceland having 50 euros in my pocket for 6 days :)

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach how to shoot with the bow (if suddenly you don't know how) and how to make some nice coctails.
I hope that sharing interesting stories is the one of my distinctive qualities.
I like to learn, so if there is anything weird (or not really) you want to teach me - I'm opened to a new knowledge.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Leisure, wine and wide smile.
