Join Couchsurfing to see Olga’s full profile.
We're living in Germany, Nuremberg.
We are from St.Petersburg in Russia!
Finding new interesting places. Finding interesting things to do together with my daughter.
I'm a happy, enthusiastic person. I like doing interesting things, either working with hands(pottery, sewing, baking bread, and others) or finding new places to go to.
I like nature — hiking, swimming in rivers and sees, sitting by the fire, watching the stars.
I am a former engineer for development of measurement devices for volcanology. I have a tecnical approach and analytic mind. In any field of knowledge I deal with, I'm interested, how it works and like go to the ground of it.
I am a Yoga Instructor. I am exited about how the body works, how to make it more beautiful, healthy, conscious. Also I am a beginning Cranio-Sacral-Therapist and when I learned about this the first time, it was an life-changing moment.
I am an action person, I like when things are happening. Or to make them happen. Sitting at home doing nothing is not my thing. Experiencing exiting moments, manifesting incoming ideas, working with hands, learning new things, striving forward, this is what makes me happy.
I am a single mom and have a two-year old daughter Maria. Together we are eager to go to nature places, walking barefeet, smelling the odors of a field, watching little animals, collecting leaves, stones and wood, to make something beautiful of it at home.
Also I have a dog — a Malinois shepherd, called Mokh. He is our veery best friend and we love and respect him a lot, for he is a strong personality. Right now he lives at our grandpas hoyse, because they became very good friends. So in my appartment there are no animals.
I care a lot of traditions, especially the russian ones. I like singing russian folclore songs and enjoy old russian traditional fests with food, songs and old rituals. I also have sewn some traditional gown by hand. I feel that this brings me nearer to our routs, and life becomes more colorfull, happy and juiceful, purposeful.
Also I am interested in the traditions of different other countries, because knowing about them enriches ones mind in a very worthful way. I believe that these traditions let the people live with more happiness and life quality.
I like to play guitar and to sing. I dream to learn to play exiting rhytms on a djembe.
I have traveled a lot to interesting places and lived exiting adventures in Russia, Armenia, Sweden, Norway, Austria, Ireland, USA(Colorado), Sicily, and lots of other countries.
I would like to continue this experience, and find a way to travel with my daughter to enrich her and my vision of this world.
Also I am very curious about the people who might come to stay at our place. Every person you meet brings you new input, new ideas and inspiration and enriches your life!
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
The idea of Couchsurfing changes thinking to new dimensions — this is a completely different experience of travelling! When you come to live with people from a country, you dive deep into the reality of the life there and aquire experience you would never see, when living in a hotel. It makes the travelling experience of people so much deeper and more colorful!
