About Me

I'm a travel mommy with my bundle of joy: Baby Leo :) I live no far from the black sea in an amazing city in Russia. I'm addicted to travelling and discovering anything new in this world. I love connecting with like minded kind, honest, deep people. I'm a travelling mom. Sometimes I travel with my hubby and son and at rare times i'm travelling alone with my son Leo.

I love to listen as much as share my own thoughts. I have an open mind, see beyond all races, a good sense of humor, foodie, local markets and love discovering local culture.

PS: I'm not on couchsurfing because i want anything free. Fortunately, i always have a decent budget to travel. But i also don't enjoy being contacted by people who are promote their own business and services as its against the spirit of couchsurfing. Also, I have a family; a loving husband and a child; I hope nobody will contact me with any other reason than sharing with each our culture, places and possible friendships. Its not comforting when you receive creepy messages.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To see the world through the eyes / lens of the native local people. The learn the culture, hospitality and wisdom and bring it back home with me and share with people who don't travel often. Also to show my son Leo the vastness and beauty of this world and its people.

I would also like to share in return with fellow travelers the place i live in and my world with my son and family.


I want to overcome the stereotype about travelling with a young child. Discover new places, beaches, nature, animals, forest, people, amazing food. I want to meet kind, honest people in my travels.
