About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To break the bounds, to bend the plains, to discover the inner fire and cook some fried sausages.

ABOUT ME

I was going to work day after day. Everything was okay, everything was determined. Next thing I remember: I'm in hot Crimean steppes with my rucksack. Why is that? Well, I don't know. I like my home, I like to lay in a bed. But sometimes I like to leave behind the everyday routine and something happens. I can spend the whole day trying to invent some new dish in the kitchen or go traveling. Change just happens and I can't see any reason to stop it :)

PHILOSOPHY

Move. Observe. Be calm. Empathize. Do not succumb to the feelings, yet do not suppress them. Perception depends on the scale. You can always zoom out.

Interests

Walking, jogging, hiking, bicycling. Talks. Cooking, bread-making, hot drinks. Writing. Music and music festivals. Computers. Books. Movies, animation.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I don't know, all amazing things of yesterday seem just okay now :)I was walking in the rain once. Heavy streams were going down from the sky right on me, on everything. I took off my shoes and just wandered. Rain was everywhere: my skin only felt the hitting of drops, my ears only heard the sound of falling water, my eyes were shrouded by this liquid wall. The world disappeared. And there was not one thought in my mind. This was amazing :)

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm good at computers and my native language, so I can teach these things. I can share some cooking recipies and give some advice about bikes. And of course I can tell about places, where I've been.

Countries I’ve Visited
