About Me

Dear Couchsurfers,
I am one of you - a traveler, an explorer, a teacher, and a learner.

Professionally, I am an English teacher, I work with adults. Recently I've been writing a book to help my compatriots to learn English. Knowing this language helped me a lot in my life - I would never have decided to head off for my first travel if I hadn't known English at that time. So I want to help others achieve more, open up, discover and whatever knowing this language can do for them.

I have experienced ups and downs in my life. I grew up. And I think I am ready to share a lot with you.

Currently, I am working on my own project - I want to prepare a huge gallery of pictures and videos from as many countries as it is possible to inspire others to travel the world.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Couchsurfing brought me back the faith in people after I'd lost it. I will always be thankful for that and I will never stop taking part in this special project.


I love writing. I have published one book so far. One of my 'travel stories'. I was very happy to share that story with others. I also like learning how to cook different dishes from all over the world.
I love dancing, although I might not be very good at it. I am a belly dancing instructor.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can give anything that somebody wants to get from me - my optimism, my heart, my advice, my skills (I think I may be quite skillful in some areas, I can dance... I can ... listen... )
The only thing I want to learn is YOU, dear couchsurfers... :)
