About Me

I`m a keen traveler and it is truly my passion. I have a list of countries that I would really like to visit, so if I`m sending you a request - your country is the one :)

Besides traveling, my main occupation is project management in IT. I love my job as it allows me to communicate with different people from all over the world and get to know their culture.

I also love skiing, biking, dancing (I used to go to a dancing school for 6 years), hiking and just hanging out with my friends. I can`t say I`m a big party girl but I do enjoy meeting a lot of new people, especially abroad.

I am a true cat person. My cat`s name is Mars and I think it was a right name for him because he always tries to attack me (not in a mean way, just to play...I hope).

Fun fact about me: I`m very petite girl (only 155 sm or 5' 1") and weigh 45 kg (99 pounds). So it may seem like I don`t eat much, but don`t let that image fool you :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I can`t live without traveling so I always go to a new country whenever I can. Of course I can rent out an apartment or book a hotel but it`s always nice to get to know a local person that could actually give a lot of insides on a culture, traditions and maybe even help with fun places to go to. I`m a very open-minded person (at least I`d like to believe so :)), so I`m very interested in other aspects of life that people from different countries might have. And of course share something about my culture if someone is interested :)

Music, Movies, and Books

I really love all books by Steven King. My favorite one has to be The shining.
As for the movies, I prefer comedies or cartoons (yes, I`m a child at heart). I do like some drama or thrillers as well. I really enjoyed "A beautiful mind", "Crazy, stupid love", "The Greatest Showman". My recent favorite TV show is Stranger Things and I`m still waiting on a new season of Game of Thrones.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I have always dreamed to take my mom to a vacation outside the country because she`s never been anywhere. I was finally able to take her and my brother to Egypt for a nice sunny vacation.

Teach, Learn, Share

My favorite saying is: "It`s not better, it`s not worse, it`s just different."

What I Can Share with Hosts

I really like to discuss different cultures and compare them and find similarities. And it always amazes me how different but similar at the same time we all are. I can share anything about my country starting from politics, social life, prices, culture, how people are etc.
