About Me


I'm Maria, I enjoy traveling and I love meeting people from different backgrounds and spending a few days living in their way! Part engineering geek, part dancer, part impulsive Russian :) We are all the same on the inside, and there is something magical in meeting someone with a seeminly different life on the other side of the world to share and make memories and connect!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I have always wanted to give it a go, and it sounds like a great way to get to know people from different walks of life and places.


I am a dancer at heart! I love thinking about all the things and discussing them. I really like being exposed to things I don't understand and things I haven't experienced yet.
