About Me

Traveling and changing the world through education, filming awesome videos and inspiring people around the world to couchsurf, workaway and travel responsibly. We have recently received permanent residency in the United States and are currently traveling and working here.

ABOUT US

We represent a project called Turbomasala. At least 6 months out of each year we travel around the globe, create awesome inspiring videos, work, volunteer, teach and learn about other cultures and people. We don't eat meat and like to cook tasty vegetarian dishes. We're Burners!

We have started a seasonal family business making Holiday Ornaments in Russia and spread it to USA and going to Europe this year. We also have a few other small start-ups we are working on.

You can learn more from our website www.turbomasala.com and facebook.com/turbomasala

PHILOSOPHY (we will play it with some of our favorite quotes)

Make interesting decisions and you will have interesting biography.
If you want to change the world, start with changing yourself.
Happiness is only real when shared.
The only success in life is to live it in your own way.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

This year we've had an incredible couchsurfing experience an now it's time to pay it forward! Thus, we're offering our couch in a beautiful remote place near Moscow. (well, during the short periods of time when we are there).

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Our first CS was in August 2013 and since then we have surfed with many amazing people. It was incredible! Hell, even our witness on our wedding in NYC was our couchsurfing host! =)
