About Me

I am open minded, respectful, sociable and easy person. I like to travel so much and I can't live for a long time without ocean. Sailing is my passion. Every season I try to sail somewhere. Except sailing I love kayaking (rivers, lakes and coastal sea trips) and cycling. Also I am big fan of the wild nature.
I like to tell stories and to listen them as well. I have friends in many countries of Europe and beyond so I'm pretty know what is cross-cultural understanding is about.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I like to meet people from different parts of our planet and I like to share with them my knowledge and impressions, gaining new knowledge and impressions in exchange.

I believe that good people attract good people, and I believe that a good relationship is one of the great values.
