About Me


Enjoy life - it's not a dress rehearsal!


I am a cheerful and playful person, trying not to take life too seriously and keep the child living in me. Energetic and driven, bit idealistic, bit strange and spontaneous. Sometimes like to go with the flow to enjoy what life has to offer. Sometimes calm and unassuming, yet always - warm and friendly, eager to share in many experiences.


Nothing makes the earth seem so spacious as to have friends at a distance; they make the latitudes and longitudes.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I surf, I host, I meet people. That's what this project was created for :)


Official CS experience consists of surfing in Russia, CS meetings in London. Hosting some girls while I was living in UK. Unofficial - lots of living places and activities shared with exchange students both on their and mine trips.


Already for several years I have been a mentor for international exchange students. Best call in my study years!
Carried away by Postcrossing - best way to see more of this planet while not travelling.
Other interests include psychology, sociology, marketing, reading, Spanish language, Greek mythology, discovering cozy corners and admiring city lights at night.
Like most of people (like every couch-surfer should)I like travelling, meeting new people, finding kindred souls (doesn't happen too often but every time it does - the world becomes brighter).
Oh, and going on a spontaneous adventure is always on the top list!
