About Me

Hi all! My name is Viacheslav (short phorm Slava), generally I am from Russia. Biggest part of my life I lived in my home city Bryansk, where I've been studied History (bachelor). After 4 years at the university I've decided that i didn't want to stay in Bryansk and i moved to Saint-Petersburg. There I studied museology (because I like culture and museums especially) and worked as a guide in Sheremetev Palace - Museum of Music. So unfortunately it was boring for me and I decided to be a volunteer in Europeane Solidarity Corps program and now I am in Belgium for 1 year. I work here in Music Fund, we collect old and broken instruments, repair them and send it in places, where people need these instruments to play music. Also we have many others projects. I am happy that I can help people around me!

I have many hobbies (from gardening to history). Yes, I really like to grow vegetables and especially flowers ar home. I also like history of art and different cultural studies, sometimes I read a lot. Nature is my passion, I like to walk in the forests and make photos of different flowers and plants. I also like sport, I go to the gym sometimes and recently I started to run.

I speak Russian, English and I am studying French and Italian now. I am not smoking (only seldom during a party with friends I can smoke one cigarett, no more). Sometimes I drink some alcogol mostly beer or wine.

If you want to know something else about me, you can ask me :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I want to communicate with people all over the world, make a friends, learn languages, and to share travel experience. I also think that travellin with CS is more intresting, because it allows to be not alone in new place, speak with local people, to know some traditions of their countries. The most important thing - CS could help to find a friends all over the world :)

Make peace not war and I dream that one day people could live happily all together without wars, violence,borders etc.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I can win my fear and go to my dream, it is my superpower =)
When I was in a volunteer camp in Crete in Greece a few years ago, we went swimming in a mountain river and jumped off a small cliff into a large pool below. And although I was quite scared, I jumped with guys and still remember this moment full of adrenaline.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can help you learn Russian language or history. I can tell you about Russian classical literature. I can tell you about many houseplants or help with gardening. I also can tell you something intresting about art, culture, museums and something about my travels. And I know how to cook some tasty food!
