About Me


Hello, I'm Lisa, I'm russian, from Saint Petersburg. Now I live in Budapest, I'm a phd student on literature departement of ELTE. I write about magical realism in hungarian literarure, really interesting btw

I like to meet people, I'm quite opened, I think, and I love to fly in the plane)

and please avoid the dating-site-kind of msgs, I mean out of the blue starting with "hey pretty" etc.


My parents are psychologists, so when I was younger I also (with them) went through this interest towards positive psychology. Some things I still find nice. But all in all for now I'm afraid we live in a world of aphorisms. "Be hungry be foolish" (which btw doesn't even belong to Steve Jobs) be this, be that, be happy... Aphorisms are in the internet on t-shirts on cups - everywhere. That's sad. And another thing - I love disharmony too. I think we don't need to be happy all the time (neither sad). And as for philosophers for now I realy like and enjoy to read Nikolai Berdyaev.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Unfortunately I can't host now, but I could show you Bp, to go for a walk, for a coffee or for a party


I like to walk alone or with smb, I like reading a lot, and conversations as well, also parties, cinema, and I also like to draw and to sew, but may be I can't do it very well) And I also write fairy-tales and stories.

Music, Movies, and Books

I like some electronic music like "The Knife" or "Röyksopp" than Radiohead, Love, Regina Spector, the Smiths, etc etc
Now I'm getting to know classical music too.
Currently my favorite poet is Osip Mandelstam, writers - Heinrich Böll, and Kortazar, Thomas Mann and a lot of others. Also Viktor Frankl. And Astrid Lingren is also great I think)
I also seriously dislike one movie - The "Before midnight, sunrise and sunset" trilogy. For my taste it's a bunch of cliches and the couple for some reason seems to me quite disturbing. Do you think you can know a person, knowing what they dislike?)) Sounds uniting, no? "heey, friend, you hate this one too!")) Definitely tell me if you don't like midnight-trilogy))

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

A lot of things!) Budapest from Gellert-hill for instance. I always have some sacral feeling when I see it)

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach russian, I'm a russian teacher in Russian Istitute, but would be better to teach russian literature for inst) I like it very much. Or I could teach you to knit ot crochet;)
