I am an active person and believe that movement is life. Studying abroad gave me a privilege to meet interesting people I would not have met otherwise, learn more about different cultures, travel etc.
I used to follow the conventional way of traveling (buying a travel package-airport-hotel-beach-hotel-airport) for quite a while. Luckily there were a couple of adventures like a spontaneous trip to Gran Canaria, exploring Cinco Terre in Italy by car, going to Sweden and back without a passport. Those memories will stay with me forever.
I constantly work on improving myself: I read books, play chess, do morning exercises. I write a diary. Pretty much every day. It's fascinating to see it grow volumes.
For the past year I have been doing an experiment with myself: I stopped eating meat, fish, eggs and dairy products. I just wanted to see how I'd feel. I do not preach about veganism or anything of that sorts, but if you have questions I'll do my best to share my experience with you, though I am in the begging of this way. In case cooking vegetarian is a problem for you- worry not, I shall take care of my food without any second thought.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I hosted quite a few people on CS and had only positive experience. CS has taught me to trust people: I'd discuss with my guest/guests where we'd meet in the afternoon when I finish work, leave my key to them and go on with my day. I did it for the sake of their comfort and my growth (I hope you are following).
However, I have never been on the other end of CS. I'd imagine that making a guest feel comfortable at your place is a completely different thing from what being comfortable at other peoples' home is. I want to experience that. I want to see how other people live, to know what is important for them. It's a great learning opportunity!
I want to hold a charity photo-exhibition in 2018

Music, Movies, and Books
I rarely read "fresh arrivals" and prefer the books that were checked by time and became classics. Dumas, Doyle, Bulgakov, Pasternak, Esenin, Twain and many many others.
I have read most of Jack London and Remarque.
At the moment I am going through the list of Pulitzer prize winners.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
