About Me

I'm an outgoing, nice and friendly person with a good sense of humour.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I think that there`s no better way to get to know a place than through its people, coz they always know what's worth doing or seeing in a city. Plus, hosts are generally awesome people with amazing interesting jobs and a global point of view which is really great as you can share such experience. I like to discuss music, literature, art, history, or international relations and couchsurfing gives a unique opportunity to do this with different people. Moreover, it`s cool to exchange travel stories.


Travelling, meeting new people, education, going to the gigs, hanging out with my friends, art, photography.
