About Me


Explore and support


We are a family who slowly travel around the world. Currently we live in and explore Australia. At the moment we live just outside Lakes Entrance (5-min drive or 1,5 hour walk).
We have a 3-year old boy.
We can host family with children who don't mind to sleep in the salon. We have big living area, but we don't have spare mattress or bed except travel equipment.


We believe a man should live a simple life. Expensive cars, spacious apartments and glamorous cosmetics are all artificial to the nature of man and carry no value. Living frugally not only save lots of money, allowing to work less, but also helps to reduce our impact on that beautiful planet.

My favorite quotations:
"Happines is only real when shared" - "Into the Wild"
"Everything is figureoutable" - Marie Forleo
"If you don't live your dreams - you live your fears"

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


We meet with new people to hang out, to host or to be hosted


CS is great project allowing people passionate about travelling and outdoor meet and share experiences. We enjoy hosting people and learning every time new things about so many places


My husband does mountain biking, I do windsurf. We both love trekking, and I believe our son loves it too, at least he didn't said a word when we took him on a hike with sleeping in a tent when he was month and a half. He didn't mind either when we took him on caravan in Europe when he was 7 months old. When he was 1 year old we took him on indefinite travel in South East Asia. And now we live in Australia.

I love knitting, especially small amigurumi toys.

My husband does video editing and production for living in SE Asia.

I love doing puzzles

I love photography. I do graphic design.

Music, Movies, and Books

The last one that we saw, was simply astonishing in its beauty - "Planet Earth". The scenes are amazing, the filming and the quality beyond any imagination.

My favorite books are by Japanese author, Haruki Murakami: "Hard Boiled Wonderland and End of the World" and "1Q84"

Movies - "Shrek", "Into the wild"
