Вот как этот успешный семинар http://vk.com/event70479102 Уверен, и начинающим и продолжающим путешествовать интересно узнать много нового и полезного! Например, как добираться автостопом быстрее, чем на поезде и автобусе, как стопить и легко кататься на такси, как стать с водителем лучшим другом и быть приглашенным на ночлег за 15 минут знакомства и многое многое другое. Это весело и занимательно!
P.S. Каждого желающего ждет практика.
P.S.S. Фотосессии профессиональные включены. Одновременно можно узнать о предстоящих автостопных реалити-проектах и поучаствовать в них.

Add me https://www.facebook.com/victor.aspidov and http://vk.com/v.aspidov vk.com is better as I am there more often.

I am a good boy who has been made for export. That's why I am always happy to escape abroad. I clean myself pretty regularly. I am bad in swimming but good in walking. My socks don't smell badly. When I sing I kill mosquitos! I don't snore. Even fast food I eat slowly. I am happy when I am not sad. I wish everybody becomes friends even Tom and Jerry. I like counting countries I have visited but I don't like maths.

I am hitchhiking addicted! I take that perfect pills against humdrum existence. It works fast. The fastest stop at me was in Germany: the woman on sports BMW coupe squeezed out up to 220 under Bloodhound gang and in Lithuania: 240 in Audi A8 like in an aircraft, the slowest in Turkey in a body of a tractor of 40 km or horse-drawn vehicles in Morocco of 8 km under a rumble carried by motor-cars. I am a pupil of school of hitchhiking in Moscow. I study hard. I love adventures giving me fuel for life! No one and nothing stops me!

Автостопный реалити проект со мной на РЕНТВ. Множество полезных советов и впечатляющие реальные эксперименты на тему свободных путешествий.

PHILOSOPHY

My name's meaning. Be easy but not boring. Smile but not just because you are polite. Keep moving but don't forget to stop to enjoy a moment. Normal doesn't mean good. Humor is the best medicine against reality. You have to be smart enough not being afraid of playing fool.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Too much! And don't even think how to give it up!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

The very first couch I surfed was in maternity hospital after beating my opponents spermatozoa and living in a very cozy place! And my first outside couch with cs was on the island in Norway where I slept in hammock under stars shine! And much more amazing experiences...

Interests

Not normal people, yoga, pilates, shaping of my mom's food and not only, strip-plastic, sweet dreams (not just about my mom's food), jokes, voluntary movement, mandarines, travellings, fiction, foreign languages, football, theatre, fun

Music, Movies & Books

I am allergetic to commercial books and movies, so I don't consume it! All this and music should be in unison to my soul. My soul is fastidious.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I was in Turkey for a voluntary work camp in May 2005. My camp in Turkey was great. Our task was to ornament 8 walls of a teenager camp. The camp place looked like a hotel. This place is situated on the Aegean Sea cost near the Lesbos. We drew many interesting things: mosaics and colourful funny pictures. Our group-leader was an artist from Istanbul Baris Saribas. There were eight of us in the group: three Englishmen, the Turkish leader, an American, a German, a Korean and the Russian guy. All food was cooked by a cook who did it in a perfect way. He prepared a lot of tasty Turkish dishes and, of course, kebab. There were two important historical places near the camp - Pergamom and Efes. We visited the first one during the camp period. It was the great experience. The ruins of Pergamom are very wonderful. They are situated on a high hill near a lake. The view from the hill is nice as well. I got acquainted with a Bulgarian lady in the camp. She and her friends invited me after the camp for kebab. When I visited her with Heather (girl from the camp) her family and her showed us ruins of an ancient city Keme, then there was kebab party at their friend's place. Heather, Matthew from England, Ji-hoon from South Korea and me were invited by Baris to his parent's home for a couple of days. After that Ji-hoon, Matthew and I went to the Efes by hitch-hiking. It was evening when we came there. The museum was closed. After we had beer we went for a walk through the hole in the fence among ruins. It was security guard who called us after two hours of enjoying the stones, bleating of sheep and views of the nature. We didn't wait for his friends for so long time. There were two nice gendarmes with a pair of absolutely peaceful dogs which had just come in a couple of minutes. There was Turkish soldier who served in American army and could speak English. He was a diplomat trying to understand us and tell about it to anofficer. It was a difficult task because we didn?t have any documents with us and we were trying to explain how we had come there in a very complicated way. ''We are volunteers. We were hiking and lost! We don't know exactly where our things are. We are tired and hungry?'' - were our answers. They couldn't understand even more than before they had asked. Then gendarmes separated us. Matthew went to find our things with a boss of the gendarmes. Ji-hoon and I went to an office in a ''warm'' company. When we came to the office there were new gendarmes. Wow! Many gendarmes! One of guys in the office asked us: ''Chay?'' "Tamam!'' - was our answer. So he had proposed us tea and we haven't thought a lot before say: ''Ok''. We were drinking tea when wet Matthew came with the whole luggage. The boss told us via the interpreter to show our things in case we had stolen some ruins from the Acropolis. Matthew was the first taking out his stuff from his backpack. At first he showed his collection of rubbish which he had been picking up on the beach during the camp. It looked like rubbish for normal people but not for an artist as he is. He saw in glass and wood pieces, stones something more than usual people can see. ''Tamam, tamam'' - the gendarmes were telling him. They gesticulated: ''Continue but faster!'' because he was very slow. Then he showed his book with funny cartoons of the people from the camp. The gendarmes were smiling and even laughing when the Englishman has started to play his Pakistan drum. Enough! The next! The next was Ji-hoon. He hasn't been faster then Matthew. Finally the Turks told him to finish because they have been sure that we hadn't stolen anything. They told us that we are very good guys and have done a great job for Turkey. They asked: ''Are you hungry?'' Of course you know what our answer was. Our new Turkish friends apologized that they didn't have food and gave us just three loafs of white bread. They drove us up to the nearest city from which we have tried to hitchhike. We caught a car to direction of the cost immediately despite it has already been midnight. Three of us got food from the gendarmes instead of punishment. And more: we (three guys) caught a car in midnight immediately. Truly Turkey is a really magic country with such lovely people.
Мозги и деньги
Отсутствие интересного в жизни это проблема мозгов или денег? Читайте мои веселые истории ниже и делитесь соображениями!:)
Конечно, речь о путешествиях! В Англии меня миграционная полиция поместила в КПЗ на ночь с едой, питьем и бразильскими жрицами любви. Проблемы с пищей и ночлегом были решены, как минимум. А на допросах им развлечение обеспечить было легко - распрощались мы уже друзьями. В Турции у нас была своя "Ночь в музее" - англичанина, корейца и меня схватили жандармы и хотели поместить в тюрьму. Но шоу, которое мы разыграли растрогало их настолько, что полисмены отдали нам все съедобное, напоили чаем и отвезли нас уже в статусе героев, почетных гостей страны, туда, куда мы попросили. Еще один случай: на въезде из Бразилии в Венесуэлу, мы с аргентинцами рисковали быть уличенными в контрабанде папайя, авокадо и гуаяв, которые мы собирали в бесхозных садах. В итоге же выстроенная нами линия защиты принесла дополнительные плоды - кокосы в виде стружки с вкуснейшими булочками, напитки прилагались. Швейцарская же полиция, схватила нас на дороге, когда я стремился попасть на могилу Габриель Шанель. Проблему с транспортом удалось решить всего одной историей, которая увлекла "гаишников" настолько, что их эскорт доставил нас с пафосом официальных делегаций прямо к кладбищу. И, кстати, я прожил более десяти дней совсем без денег в Крыму - виноград, орехи, водоросли, суп из виноградных улиток стали основой моего рациона. А солнце и море только закрепили результат такой диеты: здоровье и счастье на лицо и ... все что ниже. Идея супа привезена из Бельгии, улитки украинские, а мозги отечественные. :) Автостоп и деньги такие же совместимые понятия, как классическая музыка и наркотики. :)

Teach, Learn, Share

I love adventures. HH and CS feed me with that. I love to share this and all the rest which I name "The Real life and The real love". Go on to share some of my impressions. For example some hh. My another hh trip around 2500 km in Scandinavia and Germany was as easy as take a candy from a baby! I am happy to be such kind of risky person. HH means for me adventures, comfort (most of transport are better than any bus) meeting really unique people telling me a lot of new things, however hh is very predictable and fast (usually it takes a few minutes or even less to catch a car) fun, getting care from people being far away from your mom and after all it is not just free but freedom and great activity for lazy people as I am because there is no need to worry about time and tickets stuff and often I am taken just right to a place I need, so no even need to walk.Any troubles makes me stronger and I appreciate all simple pleasures far much more. The secret is just to be in a good positive mood and spread positive energy! People love it and just give it back!I love super voluntary camps! Why? If you have done at least one in your life it is not useless!My Honeymoon in Girona, Spain! Try it and share my pleasure!So, there is my first cocktail (the etymology of cocktail word is a tail of cock which has many colors as a cocktail drink normally), which I have just invented being in Girona (beautiful city where "The Perfumer" has been filmed) before my flight to Malta among the other countries in my another crazy trip. It is lovely and healthy! For enjoying it you need 20ml of brandy, 200ml of milk and 2 teaspoons of honey. Milk should be hot and the honey melted in it. I gave it a name "Honeymoon"! You can make it cold. It depends when you do your Honeymoon in winter or in warm season. Anyway it gives you lovely vibes! Repeat my experience and share it with me! You can effort Honeymoon everyday! Don´t drink too much because ther is another side of the moon. If happend you present it to the others you should name the author!:)And for a desert hitchhiking tips which can work. Probably it is not new for you but I can tell you it is easy to hh all wheels divices. I advise to use extra fake wallet with empty card and some currency of uknown country with a lot of zeros but not valuable, put money in different places and better sometimes to avoid police as they can be corrupted. In case of problems you should try to keep being positive. I use paper in a local language saying that I am Russian, my name, I love hh because as it is the best way to know the country. But I never had troubles to really use this things because hitchhiking is very safe and just amazing! Happy travels, buddies!
ДУХ СВОБОДЫ ИЛИ ДУХNESS
Автостоп - лишний риск и трудности!? Мужчина без риска и трудностей, как орел без крыльев, становится подобным курице. На дороге фильтруются НАСТОЯЩИЕ люди от бандитов до света нации, объединенные самым главным - ЧЕЛОВЕЧНОСТЬЮ. Авто от сверкающих класса "лимузин" до "малолитражек", дышащих на ладан. Скорости от 3 до 240 км. в час. Истории, жизни, судьбы, энергии, улыбки, мурашки, музыка, песни, смех, пыль дорог, солнце, ветер, облака... И абсолютно неизвестный человек становится таким близким!
Что может быть прекраснее дороги к дому? Только дорога к дому автостопом! Позади 77 дней хитчхайкинга, 11 стран, 5 морей, сотни потрясающих людей и авто, 3200 м. над уровнем моря - перевал Казбеги с десятками застывших на ледяном подъеме фур и одной, сорвавшейся вниз, 21 час финального морозного стопа с Кавказа где поезд едет 33, и я успел... успел отменить конец света! Я доомааа!!! И со мной истинное богатство - тысячи фото, видео и неисчислимые мгновения настоящего счастья равно как и звезд над головой. Я люблю этот Свет без конца!
