About Me


To pack for the Interrail!


I'm Russian girl living in Finland, studying cognitive science in University of Helsinki. I usually don't consider myself as a spontaneous person, but at the end of the day I notice that I am, kind of. I like dancing, adventures and seeing my friends and my boyfriend and experience new things with them. I also like hiking and riding my bike, and I'm always starting or quitting jogging. :D I'm into different languages and practicing them by talking with people from abroad.

PS. I asked my friend, her words to describe me: "a purring cutie".

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Right now I can't host, sorry, but I can help you getting around in my city (at least try, I'm a bit busy at the moment). (: I'm leaving to Europe in couple of weeks, Interreil, so maybe hoping for some friendly couch (:


Nothing yet, eager for the experience (:


- All things beautiful, meaning whatever, places, architecture, art, cats, people, nature...
- All things yummy of course, like ice cream, chocolate etc.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

This is kind of a cliché, but definitely on of the most awesome moments was being on Machu Picchu at eight in the morning.
