I am very happy I am alive and I do everything I can to enjoy every moment of the miracle called "life on Earth". And I am waiting for a continuation of it in Heaven.

PHILOSOPHY
***
Orthodox Theology https://goo.gl/r3UX3X

Never say never

Tell me true tell me why was Jesus crucified? (R.W) http://goo.gl/CKGAF

Do you think we should be closer? (R.W.) http://goo.gl/cv5C4q

Like the moment when your brakes lock
and you slide toward the big truck
and stretch the frozen moments with your fear
and you'll never hear their voices, and you'll never see their faces
you have no recourse to the law anymore (R. W.) http://goo.gl/f8RNjq

What's done is done https://goo.gl/NRDOOd

Don't be afraid of what the people say (Gallahan) http://goo.gl/PHNTIi

All I have to do is just close my eyes
To see the seagulls wheeling on those far distant skies.
All I want to tell you, all I want to say
Is count me in on the journey. Don't expect me to stay. (R. W.) https://goo.gl/3UEIWZ

Well, you go your way, I'll go mine. I don't care if we get there on time. (R. W) https://goo.gl/3UEIWZ

Is your conscience at rest If once put to the test? (D. G.) https://goo.gl/RkZA74

I am very pleased to welcome all guests to my home, wherever it may be located.

I also try to answer questions in those groups, of which I am a member, should I have something meaningful to contribute.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE
***

Watch the video about it! — https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cFVic-qC3Pk

Up until now, my overall experience has been both encouraging and helpful and I trust it will continue to be such.
All the more so I think that selling the CouchSurfing to private investors and turning it into a corporation was a mistake, and a crooked one to that.
The video where Casey Fenton, the co-founder of the CS, tries to cover up that crookery is now deleted from the CS website — one might wonder why — but the Internet remembers: https://goo.gl/1GxVGM

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

***
I could list here a huge number of "amazing moments" I have experienced. But, as I see it, my whole life is a miracle, so I just enjoy it, without counting the days and listing events.
***
The river flows
It flows to the sea
Wherever that river goes
That's where I want to be
Flow, river, flow. (https://goo.gl/L8hdWx)

Teach, Learn, Share

Orthodox Theology

Ancient Languages

Russian Civil and Church History

Hitch-hiking in Russia and CIS

Teaching of Russian and English languages

Cooking

Housekeeping

I would like to learn how to play the flute and drums. And anything you will be willing to propose, if I feel so inclined.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Well, on a culinary front, I absolutely love cooking and, even if I say so myself, I am not too shabby in the kitchen. So, why don’t I cook up a tasty meal for us both? I can also share recipes I’ve collected on my journeys.

I am also very house proud: I don’t mind doing the washing up and am more than happy to clear up after our meal. If your flat needs cleaned up a little, I am also happy to set to the hoovering and the dusting to keep it neat and tidy.

I am a firstborn of a family of 12 children; as a result, I love kids and I can play with them/babysit while you have a rest or treat yourself to an evening out.

I can give you a relaxing or sports massage, depending on your physical condition.

I can help you with your English, both spoken and written... and, if you are so inclined, Russian (it’s not as hard as you might imagine!).

Being a keen photographer, I can take some photos of you and your family and make a video!

To be honest, I would be happy to help out wherever I can, providing, of course, that it does not break the law or cause any pain or distress to myself or others! Just ask me!

Some topics I dare say I have learned something about and therefore can provide you with some insights:

Chrisitan (including, but not limited to) Russian Orthodox Theology

How to read christian icons

Ancient Languages

Russian Civil and Church History

Hitch-hiking in Russia and CIS

How to prepare and pack for a trip (some army techniques involved)

Some survival hacks

Rollerblading and agressive inline skating

Free-diving

Teaching of Russian and English languages

Cooking

Housekeeping

And much more, if you feel so inclined.

Countries I’ve Visited

Belarus, Croatia, Czech Republic, Finland, Georgia, Germany, Greece, India, Lithuania, Russian Federation, Spain, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Ukraine

Countries I’ve Lived In

Russian Federation, Ukraine
