About Me


learn how to SURF. Both couch and wind.


Just love water: see, ocean, river, it can be anything, but I just have to swim, swirl, dive, snorkel and splash.
I am looking for something I would like to do for a living and enjoy. I wish they paid for traveling!


Carpe diem!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Well, I haven't hosted actually, but I met some CSrs and enjoyed it greatly!
Now I hope to surf some couches and meet more interesting people!


I've met two CS guys and they blew my mind. They travelled to places in Russia which non of my russian friends had ever been to. That's incredible what surfers do.


Novels, travels, languages and Chinese in particular. Yoga, meeting people and talking to them. Trying different authentic cuisines.
I've tried rafting and I loved it! One of my fave activities is hiking and exploring new routes. There are so many things to do and to see in the world that I feel overwhelmed at times. Well, my journey in one thousand li has already started. Add oil :D

Music, Movies, and Books

Last book I liked was Catch-22, movie - the one about Serge Gainsbourg. Chopin - all times favourite.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

One of the latest memorable moments happened when I went night hiking in Hong Kong. I just stood there on top of the hill, having a huge vibrant brightly lit city on one side and dark mysterious ocean covered with the lights of fisherman boats on the other side. That was something to feel, truly.
