About Me

My name can be written two variations:
Kseniya (russian choice)
or Xeniya (normal choice).

I'm honest, frank and extremely friendly - can you believe? It is natural for me. I admire people, and I expect it from others. I like interesting conversations and humour... never get bored of talking to and discussing with people who have something interesting to say!

I have some knowledge about Moscow/Russia and bad English) and I do not work on it myself, I'm too lazy. But conversations with people helps me to remember something new. One more: my tea is so good and people can forgive me everithing!)

I think that the world is not enough kindness. The banal phrase? Maybe. Too often we argue, trying to prove something to each other, to be winners, to be leaders. This is so stupid. Every day I'm learning not to do it.

I like to absorb everythings what I see around me - talks, views, buildings, noise of an streets, the silence of the dunes... I like to meet people and to leave them too because it gives me a hope for a new meeting. I would like to spend on roads for five months or ... more. So, I'm always ready. I'm ready to do something important. Something important for someone. Something important for me. Ready to do nothing)


Why I’m on Couchsurfing

My first CS-experience was a good example of the correct host: Friendly. Hospitable. Trustful. And now I use this experience, when I invite people to come in my place.

I've been hosting, surfing, meeting for some people and every time I'm even more shocked than before: all the people I meet were friendly, outgoing, talkative, peaceable... I think it's common for many people, but I have met such people very rarely on my way before CS. Host must go on!


Walking. Very very long walks.
My favorite phrase: "It's not so far away". I like long conversations as long walks. They can be mix)
Usually historical places BORED me as HELL but it depends...)
