About Me


Challenging myself, learning from others


I'm passionate about traveling and meeting inspiring people. John Lennon once said: "life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans" and I completely agree with this life philosophy. I adore 60 (sometimes too much!) and good live jazz in a bar. Great conversations with smart people. Adventures. And being in the places where great things happen (yes, I'm from Ukraine).


"It's better to burn out than fade away".(Kurt Cobain) "I have simple tastes: I'm always satisfied with the best" (Winston Churchill)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I cannot host, but I can show you around Kyiv and have a cup of coffee with you :)


It's been absolutely great so far!
