About Me

Read carefully. I’m in Philippines right now.
I’m a traveler, living a healthy lifestyle. I don't smoke and don't drink alcohol. It’s prohibited in my house.

I’m working on radio 📻 pilotfm.ru/online in Yekaterinburg.
Always searching for beautiful people and places.
Collecting📍points on the map 🗺 .
One picture is worth a thousand words.

Check my albums here to feel joy of hosting and surfing.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love traveling, meeting locals and hosting foreigners.
I'm starting to use CS during my travels not so much time ago, but it lifts the experiences for the highest level.
Thank you all!
