About Me


to live


A russian with some non russian name at all and just unpronounceable surname but you can try though
I like coffee and pineappes, to keep silence for some time in the morning and tasting new food and eating in general. And to ask new people some stupid questions.
Trying to learn to live the present moment - a difficult task actually.
And sometimes I can laugh really loud.
I'm preparing myself for my lifetime trip


U'd better ask my friend Nadia cause she has a degree in philosophy and can tell u more even about MY personal phylosophy

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Some time ago I used to host a lot. My friend and me were surfers during our travel around England.


So back into 2008 I first heard of CS from my friend Alexander Zelenkin and I decided why not to try. First there were some CS-meetings and then my first real guest the funniest Michael Acevedo and then things began to take off.
We were as near as dammit missing our train with Pirmin Proier and Asa Merritt but got in time! And Michele Ragazzini and Raoul Pilotti finally missed their train - not my fault though!! They overstayed here by mistake by 1 day!
The kindest Iannis Kase and the company had inspired my great friend Irina Ustyantsevawith their german after what she moved to Germany!
We had unforgettable conversations with David Schmidl and Matthias Danzinger
who somewhere in the middle of Tibet advised me to another unforgettable person who became a teacher in my University for one day – Jules van de Wetering! The world is really tiny)
The nicest Enric hosted my friends in the shining city of Barcelona! We’ve already met twice in different parts of Europe with David Barth and I’ll never forget my first roadtrip in Europe and how we made it to Octoberfest with Ashwin Pattarkine, Mélanie Montil and Ivonne Cussi!

Music, Movies, and Books

movies to watch
can't understand people who can name their favourite film
but I think Being John Malkovich is a really funny one
books to read
anti-utopias and classics
music not to have a headache
no rap
I love trying to sing
I love trying to play bansuri
And some time ago my friends and me got addicted to this Karaoke... ohh no we're always doing it now with the worst songs in the world
