About Me

I am currently away. Sorry guys. Back to hosting from the late September.
ABOUT ME

I am a typical Russian of 3 nationalities... Living in a multinational country is a sort of inborn couchsurfism (rhymes with couchsufism)

PHILOSOPHY

Life is awesome. Life is gruesome. People are nice. I am nice. It's nice to meet nice people.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I travelled mainly to the East, hitchhiked, not much though, don't hitchhike alone anymore, my favourite transportation is a ship and on the top of a lorry.

Interests

I like diversity in all combinations, the Republic of Georgia, the East, people rather giving than taking...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Came back to Moscow.
It's like the gravitation point.
driven by the Moscow's rythm.
Ready... steady... go...

Teach, Learn, Share

In Tehran on my first day of arrival I couldn't call back home because they don't use Arabic digits there. I was fully at loss. But then some Azerbaijanis came to help and helped (in Russian)...

I always knew that if we don't speak the same language, we can use a mediator language (now English). If then one of us can't speak English, we can use gestures, draw pictures, numbers, sing, dance...

But what if nothing helps?

Sometimes I am dreaming of such a journey when you come to a dead point of a complete, pitch dark non-understanding. Must be somewhere in the jungles.
