en-joy the life. happiness is only real when shared
Mermaids never cry, so I'm always smiling no matter what :)
can't live in routine. need to always experience smth new: new places, new people, new activities.
enjoy being on the road.
like to act spontaneously, to do what I feel like doing, not what I am expected to.
can walk around the city for hours, for many-many hours (personal record is non-stop 12-hours walk in St. Petersburg).
let myself lose my mind now and then :)
be as you seem or seem as you are
love your life
give what you can
don't be afraid of the changes
everything is for the better
if u really need it and are ready for it, you will get it
to find the right way you need to get lost first
the journey is more important than destination
It began as a wish, became an adventure, and ended as the ultimate road trip
дорога - мой дом, небо - моя тетрадь
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
as I can't host, I try to show travellers around or just give them some information when they need.
and I'm an active surfer :)
the first one was in Zagreb in 2010.
in May, 2012 I decided to extend it and had an amazing trip through Israel. then was short autumn in Lithuania and New Year-ish winter in Poland.
and 2013 spring I fully experienced the real turkish hospitality.
I'm very grateful to each and every one of my hosts for they are so different! all the best to all of you!

Teach, Learn, Share
what I'd love to learn one day (may it even not be via CS) is dancing, bycicle riding, diving, and some more languages (even thought of sign language).
what I can teach - I'm not that skillful at anything. but some people I teach with my own example that one shouldn't be scared of living a full life, that there are much more nice people around who are ready to help you than bad ones, and that if you think positive things will work out for you :)
well, and of course, English and Russian in case you are interested.
