About Me

Hello everyone! I'm twenty one years old student from Saint Petersburg, Russia. I am learning science and hope to apply my knowledge for the use of healthcare and ecology. I'm also trying to develope myself in different sides of life step by step, though it is always hard...

It is traveling that really inspires me, even if it comes to a lot of planning and organising. Usually I tend to go to beautiful old cities. I'm always up to climbing to a medieval bell-tower or eating an ice-cream outside a baroque palace (inside would be nice as well, but it sounds unreal). However, I find it really cool to be in the countryside too, especially if there are friends around.

From time to time I also feel like cuddling up in а blanket with a good movie to watch or sewing some cute felt stuff, like toys or pencil-cases.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I think that meeting new people from different cultures is the most exciting part of any adventure!

Music, Movies, and Books

rock, folk, classical...
very-very different: magical realism, some good old fantasy (Harry Potter, Earthsea, Dragonriders of Pern, Deryni and Elderlings series), classical literature, dystopian novels, russian poetry of the 20th century...
Wes Anderson, Hayao Miyazaki, filmes starring David Bowie and anything but chaos in my "movies list"...
