About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Each day offers so many possibilities. I want to do everything!

ABOUT ME

Hello. We are friends of Mary and Olga. My name is Maria. I grew up in the south of Russia.I get great pleasure when I see the beautiful scenery. Sea attracts me. I can not help it if I have the opportunity to ride with someone on a motorcycle near the river. I like it when the wind hits the face and the smell of wet grasslands. When my friends can not go with me, I travel alone.
I often meet nice people on a journey. The more I travel, the more I meet wonderful friends! But the most amazing thing is that each new one is a whole new view of the world! We are all so different and are identical at the same time.
Olga knows a lot about painting, sculpture and architecture. It teaches children to art school. She infected me with a passion to learn new things. It has long been in love with Italy, but never here and her dream was to see with your own eyes! And she's a great cook. It will teach you Russian cuisine. And we will be happy to learn from you to prepare new dishes that you love.

Please forgive me my bad English.

PHILOSOPHY

I think the most important thing in life is a creation.
I believe in friendship.
The more we give to others, the more we get in return.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I can take one guest. Sometimes 2 guests
Of course I'll make Russian dinner. When I have a weekend, I can show you the museum and also rural and urban surroundings.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I am a newbie here. But I think it's great. Here everyone can find a person close to you in spirit.

Interests

I love looking at the stars. Have you looked at your zodiacal constellation in the sky?I'll show you the constellation Taurus, Gemini, Leo ..., if the moon will not shine. But in different months, we can see different constellations.

I also like the floods in the spring. And I like to feel the breeze, when I'm standing on a cliff near the sea or rivers.

I often dream of sailing ships. Although never sailed on them. Perhaps sometime in the future ...

Music, Movies, and Books

Irving Stone,Stefan Zweig, Ernest Hemingway.
I'm also a fan of Greek myths. I think that on a subconscious level, it's something to do with my past lives.
One of the films: Ocean's Eleven. Because I work in a casino 8 years ago. In this film, the spirit of adventure.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The most amazing thing - sculptures of Michelangelo.

And if you prefer, Olga and I will teach you to cook Russian pelmeni and Russian pancakes.
