About Me

*** Hey guys, sorry I'm not always here. I live in Papamoa beach, not far from Tauranga. Up for any activities, meetups, etc. Also, I have a spare room to rent if you want to stay a week or longer***

I'm digital nomad and traveller. Started to explore this beautiful world in 17 y.o. and visited 50 countries by now. Love to meet interesting people doesn't matter what countries they are from. I don't eat meat but I can have seafood or fish sometimes. Outdoorsy. Boards fan. Entrepreneurs spirit and hope to build a family business one day.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Meet new people from different parts of the Earth. Learn how the world works and how beautiful it is from their perspective

Music, Movies, and Books

I used to listen rock music a lot in my childhood. Now I prefer different kind of music mostly depends on the mood. Indie, electronic, lo-fi, chill. Absolutely read maniac. I keen both on fiction and non-fiction. Erich Mary Remark, S. Esenin, F. Dostoevsky, Jack London, C. Palanick and others. I'm a fan of longevity - the conception that everyone can live a long life. If you're interested in longevity, I highly recommend the biggest research called 'The Blue Zones’ by Den Buttner and National Geographic. You can find 20 min TED video about it on YouTube.

Teach, Learn, Share

I love to cook. Want to try to make traditional dishes of every country I visit. I'm learning Spanish now and this is my 4th language (2 of them my native languages Russian and Tatar). Love to explore and discover. Open for experiments. Curious about new things. I’m happy to share my knowledge in travels, digital nomad's lifestyle or finding cheap deals - how to travel on a tight budget.
