About Me


To live an intense and passionate life, to make all my crazy ideas reality, to infect others with my travel bug and feel alive every single minute!


When I was about 5, my parents pinned a world map above my bed. After spending my entire childhood glued to it I decided: one day I'm going to visit every corner of the world. Every country - at least once. Back then I lived in communist Russia and all I could do was dream. But now I'm making this dream come true. Bit by bit. It gradually replaced all normality I ever managed to have in my life, and to my travel bug I've sacrificed my career amongst other things - best crazy irresponsible decision I've ever made.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


host, surf, meet, show around and convert the non-believers!


Most of my couchsurfing experiences have either been great, amazing, or sensational! I've made life-long friends both hosting and surfing.

Apart from that: travel photography/reading/writing... ok ok I do have other interests: good -timeless - books, hiking, collecting art from around the globe, dancing - latin, african, dancehall, any dancing really..

Music, Movies, and Books

Books: Marquez, Cortazar, Paolo Coelho, Kundera, Pavich, Russian writers whose books are yet to become world famous. Films: old Russian movies.. Italian.. 2046. Music: grew up on The Beatles. At the time I moved to Australia my whole vocab came from their songs:) I'm a massive fan of Caribbean music, from soca to bachata to reggae to zouk...Coop, Paris Combo, So Frenchy so Chic and the two Congolese musicians playing next to the Roman Agora in Athens.. I love buying music on the streets...there is so much talent in the world!! I don't do radio or TV. I don't like being spoon-fed anything, be it manipulated news or mass-produced-calculated-expertly marketed 'art'.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I try to do amazing things all the time or at least imagine ordinary things to be amazing.

My zest for life! My crazy travel stories, my either great or horrible cooking skills (depending on the day)
