About Me

We grew up and live in Moscow. We are both computer programmers. Alex writes sci-fi stories. "Yeah, I have a book and a bunch of short stories". We're vegans.
We have two sites full of photos taken from all the countries we've been to -- (RUS) and (ENG).

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

We are travelling and hosting together with my wife Elena. We think positive about everybody and try to be as tolerant as possible, respect all cultural differences, habits and traditions, all we could meet. And we share knowledge and experience as much as possible with anyone who is concerned. We like all nations, all countries, all cultures and each person we meet (by default).


Travelling, hiking, biking, skiing, photography, websites building, writing stories, astronomy, popular sciences, history... well, people and their cultures. The World.
