About Me


don't write memoirs, write fairy-tails instead


A year ago I left my hometown, Saint-Petersburg, and my motherland, Russia, to see the country I believed everyone has to see at least once in their life, USA. I was going to spend summer here and therefore had just a small backpack with a couple of t-shirts and shorts with me. But for some reason I stayed and I'm still in US not really planning to go back.
Changing my life completely appeared to be one of the most challenging, yet rewarding and fascinating things I've ever been through. And this is where the magic begins.


If something looks impossible for you, it just means that you are scared of trying it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've hosted back in Russia and surfed in the US. And it has been great so far!
