About Me

CURRENT MISSION

save the Earth coz it's the only planet with chocolate

ABOUT ME

I'm trying to find myself, though I have already finished University. I enjoy life with interesting people in interesting places. I can't stay at home just watching any soap thing. I lived too many years in a big city(which I miss desperately but really can't live in) and now I want to enjoy the fresh air, the beauty of sunset on the lake, bikes, hikes in the mountains, camping, fields of flowers (smell of cow's shit :)) etc as much as possible. I want changes every day. I want to travel coz it is my drug. But friends are my energy. Now I am doing a fabulous job back in Moscow. I work for Russian NGO www.ayavolunteer.ru for promoting volunteering. Ask me, if you want to learn more. Sometimes I talk too much about it but you can always try to stop me :) I may be shy in the beginning, especially if it's French you are speaking. But then I will find my rythm with you. I also love big parties, fun, jokes.

PHILOSOPHY

to be lost in strong feelings

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I mostly surfed the couches of the others. I hosted few CSers in Moscow and Helsinki. But I'm always up to organize an event and to support the idea (and spread the word)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have been into CSing, I am in CSing and I will be supporting the idea as much as I can

Interests

Nature and environment Movies - something I can't live without. I live festival ones, black an white and do like filming myself. Photography - I hope there are still some unused ideas in photography, so I'm making pictures Graphics - enjoy sketching with charcoal Kids - there are lots of things you can learn from them. Books, music, traveling, languages.

Music, Movies & Books

Like different kinds of music. Brit pop, jazz, trip hop, rock , pop(why not). The music really doesn't matter when you are in a good place with your best friends. I worked in cinematography for half a year and prefer movies where you need to think, movies that take you, shake you, brake you. But for the last year i think i havent seen anything new like that. Do like old movies with Charlie Chaplin, crazy about Jim Jarmusch movies(especially Coffee and Cigaretes), Hitchhock movies..mmm.. Eternal Sunshine of spotless mind, Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy..mm.and others Books. I read a lot but now im into improving my english so i ready easy-books now like Agatha Christie (dont throw eggs at me). I like Hemingway, Salinger, Ian Banks, Nick Hornby, Begbeder, Kundera, Kafka and many others(I'm crzay about guidebooks, read them even if im not going to that place in nearest future
