About Me

ABOUT ME

Adventure addict. Not only about travelling, but about the whole lifestyle as well. While still studying in the university back in Moscow, I'd decided that I was craving for a big change in my life. That is how I ended up here, in Barcelona, and yeah, that was four years ago! Four incredible, extraordinary, the happiest of years that made me who I am today. I'm finishing my studies this year and ready to explore new horizons;)

I guess I’m an open-minded, laid-back and easygoing person, always open to new things, especially those that challenge me. I love new experiences, discovering new places and meeting people (you must be kidding!:)) Also enjoy goofing around as much as I love to share a cosy chat or a brisk discussion about pretty-much-anything.

Oh, and I love all things creative! I'm quite into photography (you can see my pictures here http://www.flickr.com/photos/yuliasyresenkova/) but also willing to try myself in different creative projects

PHILOSOPHY

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." (c) Mark Twain

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

As at the moment I don’t have an opportunity to host because I live in a shared flat. But I’m more than willing to have a coffee or drink (with some tapas and a good chat!) with you and show you some of my favorite spots in Barcelona if you happened to be around:)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've already spent some good time with surfers in Barcelona, showing them around and met up with wonderful couchsurfers in Lisbon.

Interests

Photography, filmmaking , learning new languages, yoga, people, being spontaneous, hiking, long conversations, nutella, hammocks, graphic design, bicycles, cosy little cafés, the ocean, music, music festivals, silly dances, speaking with strangers, nachos with guacamole and many other beautiful things that life has:)

Music, Movies & Books

I love reading, so it's not easy to name my favourite books cause they're quite a few! Probably, it's mostly classics (especially 18th-20th century), but I do enjoy contemporary books as well.

Same for movies, I guess...Damn, I'm definitely not good in picking up "favourites":) I tend to enjoy movies that have a great idea behind them, movies with quirky humour and those with weirdos as protagonists:)

Less talk, more rock! 60s-70s rock, indie and jazz are always in my iPod. A good gig is always appreciated!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Dalai Lama's teachings in India were very inspiring! Nature in Iceland is stunning. Also I was blown away by the beautiful night sky full of stars in my first night in Tanzania!
During my last trip I fell in love with Koh-Rong island in Cambodia.
