Join Couchsurfing to see Maria’s full profile.
Firstly, I'm sorry in advance if I don't reply. It just means that I'm too busy with work and study at the moment.
My name is Maria. I love languages, art, movies, sports, self-development. Now I live in Turkey and work remotely. Life without a challenge is incredibly boring, so sometimes my form of challenging myself is traveling and diving into another culture / society.
“We do not believe in ourselves until someone reveals that deep inside us something is valuable, worth listening to, worthy of our trust, sacred to our touch. Once we believe in ourselves we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight or any experience that reveals the human spirit.”
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I just like meeting new people, this is my way to explore the world.
When I'm in my home city, I love being at home and spending time with books, music and movies. I'm a foodie and a coffee lover: if you want to explore more cool restaurants or coffee places in Moscow – ask me about it!
My main interests for now: popular science, psychology, business, marketing, IT product management.
I love talking with different people, listening to their stories and sharing experiences with them.
NO DRINKING / NO SMOKING
I'm kinda into healthy lifestyle, so please don't invite me to drink.
