About Me

I'm from balalaikaputinland, but i live in a smørrebrødmermaidcountry, right in its main village. My home is in the south end of it, my heart is in Christiania (our own freetown) and I know for sure where to spend a friday night.

If you float down the river, soon you will see the corpse of your enemy sitting on the bank.
I rely on the kindness of strangers and I take care of those relying on me.

Dear people, I can only host one at a time! Please, please, don't write me requests for two. And please please don't send requests more than 2 weeks in advance. I'm not a goddamn hostel and I refuse to be bound so much by your lack of risk.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Well, i host and i always have a spare blanket and - important! - a towel.
You should know how lonely it might be in an alien town without a towel.
Somebody has to do the job.

Music, Movies, and Books

I like music with a swing, a shuffle and/or a groove.

I read a lot and I grew up on Russian classics among others so don't go near me with that existential crisis of yours. I've got my own.

Movies by Wes Anderson, Terry Gilliam and Michel Gondry and all those that make me cry and laugh at the same time, those with insane scenography and a little sci fi and absurdity but not very scary.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I got to steer a small plane for about 20 mins and that probably tops everything else

Teach, Learn, Share

i'm practicing lighting a match with one hand only. Join in, we could make it a school.

In general, as Calvin said once while playing with his yo-yo, "the only skills i have enough patience to learn are those that have no real application in life".

Though i'd appreciate if you teach me to cook smth cool. Or juggle.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I'm pretty-pretty good at pancakes. Dude. Pancakes.
Pancakes, metaphors and ideas.
Rather handy with household, garden and other minor maintenance.
