About Me

I raised in Minsk, Belarus. At the age of 17 I hitch-hiked to China and back alone. At the age of 20, I quit university for a world-round journey. In almost three years I have hitch-hiked through 25 counties: from Belarus to Iran; from Iran to Malaysia; from Malaysia to the USA; from the USA all the way down to Argentina. In 2014 I have returned to Belarus.
In 2015 I went on a journey around Belarus with my friend on the bicycles with motors. We were shooting a documentary movie 'Around Belarus' on the way, which is now being edited.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

It is a great way to meet people. In a journey you often depend on a kindness of the complete strangers, I know that very well and I always try to help those who seek for shelter.

Interests

I like challenges. I seek for them, I create them, I find my inspiration in solving complex issues. That's why I like to travel; it creates feeling of adventure, and that what makes you feel alive.

Music, Movies, and Books

I like electronic and piano music, like Nicolas Jaar, Ghostpoet, Nils Frahm, Olafur Arnalds, etc.
I'm keen on psychology and new technologies.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I went to a Magic Bus from the movie 'Into the wild' in late October 2013. Teklanika river was low enough but freezing!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you how to travel on a very little budget. How to hitch-hike in different parts of the world; how to look for a shelter in an unknown city; how to get visas when you don't have a bank account; how to find a job in a foreign country, etc.
I can also give you some tips on travel photo and blogging.
And I know a lot of inspiring stories, when something would look impossible but eventually happened.
