About Me


If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?”


Well hello!
It's so hard to ever describe myself. For the most part I think I am super boring but then it makes no sense why I have so many amazing people in my life. I LOVE to love and I love to encourage. The way I find myself is through traveling away from home. Being on the road makes me feel complete and wholesome. I have a rather diverse background of life and a past I want to write books about.
I was born in Russia and always hated the fact that I am Russian until I went back there to teach English.
A lot of times I am very spaced out and forgetful and may come off as a silly blonde but I promise you that it's just external. And honestly I actually came to terms to being this way and I enjoy it.
I used to have time to read books but now I feel like I run around like a chicken with its head cut off due to an overwhelming eventful life of mine. But once again I love it!!!
Part of the reason of who I am is because of the people I have in my life and have met. You will probably be one of those people.
I count my blessings and cherish my stories and memories like gold.
I do not care for materialism (unless it's my camera) but I care for stories that will inspire me and get me motivated. So if you have a story and I am sure you do (because everyone on CS should) I WILL listen and most likely cry at the end because of how beautiful it was.
When you first meet me I will probably be shy, but I promise you I will loosen up, and most likely get super silly, hyper and weird.


My purpose of life is simply to live it for God.
(I will NEVER shove religion down your throat, neither do I count myself as religious)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I attend CS meetings when I travel, get hosted by people, and meet for coffee


My first CS experience was in Russia. The meeting took me to places I never thought I'd visit

*I was hosted in Moscow twice by a lovely Russian New Yorker.
*Hosted in New York by the most amazing guy ever.
*I have also gone to a CS meeting in Moscow, RU and let me tell you, It was the best meeting I ever had to attend.
*Canada trip hosted by another AMAZING host!
*Hosted in Germany
*Hosted in Tel-Aviv
I loved all my experiences.


Photography. Travelling (duh)
The Stars, the Moon, The Sun.

Music, Movies, and Books

My body can rock to any sort of music. It might not be the prettiest dancing you've seen, but I'll be having a blast.

But if you chose to turn on some modern pop my head may or may not explode.
