About Me


be happy


I am Svetlana. All my life I was moving slowly from one country to another, from the East to the West, changing schools and universities, languages and cuisine.
I would like to call myself muticultural. This is how I live. I am trying to take the best from every culture and make a mosaic out of it in me.


My personal philosophy is to live in the moment. I make plans for future and reflect about the past. However, I think people can get real taste of life when they enjoy the moments they live in, no matter what they do, eat, wandering in the park or laughing with good friends. It is very difficult to acheive but I am on my way :).

Why I’m on Couchsurfing




reading, watching movies, cooking, knittting (yes:)), doing yoga, skiing, riding my bike, meeting my friends, talking about politics with Germans.
When I travel, I like visiting cities and trying new food in the not touristic places.
Professional interests: sociolinguistics.
