About Me


To take from my life as much as possible and share it with people I love.


I graduated several years ago and now try to find myself in the exciting world of banking business. I must say, it's pretty hard! :)
I like to travel, meet interesting people and find new places. That's why I learn foreign languages: understanding is the most important thing for life.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


The idea of hosting-community impresses me a lot and I do my best to take part in it and to introduce it to my friends. I have already succeeded somewhat: my 13 y.o. brother is already an experienced couchsurfer and enjoys it too!


My family likes guests and we always have had someone staying by us. In May 2009 I registered on HC (nickname - tiunechka) and hosted for the first time Sarah from Germany and we both (I hope!) enjoyed that a lot! Her experience inspired me and since that time I have been enjoying CS lifestyle.


Reading, traveling, belly-dance, theatre, movies, roller-skating...pretty much... Oh, I adore COFFEE! :)

Music, Movies, and Books

I like reading and though at the moment I have time only for books about economics and strategic management, I try to discover new pieces of literature and not to forget old good detective stories, that I like very much!

Music... It's hard to choose some favourite type or style. Im my walkman there are German bands "Die Ärzte" and "Absolute Beginner", french rap, soundtracks of different movies, russian rock music... Actually I like any music to dance to, except drum'n'bass: I just can't move like a robot... :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The most amazing thing I've seen is the night sky in Crimea. It's like a huge and deep ink-black lake, that is covered with billions of the small silver drops. I always wonder why it doesn't spill on us...

Teach, Learn, Share

I can give you some delicious baking recipes and try to teach you German, Latin or Ancient Greek. If you're interested in, of course! ;)

I myself would like to learn how to make chocolate bars and sweets. May be I am a future genious chocolatier and just don't know it...
