About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Our family is ready to host a family from Ukraine in Dresden and provide support.
Мы готовы временно предоставить кров и посильную помощь в Дрездене людям, эвакуирующимся из Украины. Не стесняйтесь обращаться.

ABOUT ME

I don't like crowds, but I enjoy individuals. I am a bit absent-minded, prefer concentrated, philosophical discussions. I'm quite easy-going and expect people to be frank with me, saying directly what they like and what they don't. I try to see things from a non-standard perspective, looking into backyards rather than at the facades. This lets me form a less biased view of the world. If you have your own opinion, you are the one I'd like to talk to. I have no trouble if you don't agree with me (you often will not), and I expect the same from those whom I call friends.

PHILOSOPHY

Go for the broadest spectrum of emotions you can experience in your life. Pessimism is bad, yet chronic happiness is not much better, either. You have to feel the contrast to really appreciate what life gives you at those rare moments, and never take it for granted.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I had hundreds of CS guests already, and all of them were a wonderful experience with no single exception. For the moment I host more often than I surf, but that might still change. Always looking forward to meeting new friends on CS. Even if you don't need a host, write me to meet up downtown or to go hiking together.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

A beautiful sunset in the fortress of Monsanto, Portugal, in the town built among giant boulders. I met the New Year 2012 at the end of the world, in Sagres, which is the most south-western tip of Europe. There I could swim in the Atlantic Ocean right on the 31st of December under a romantic starry sky.

Teach, Learn, Share

I wish I could meet someone knowledgeable in genetics and natural selection. I have many questions. Currently I am also trying to improve my chess skills. I would appreciate if you teach me a phrase or two in your language.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can tell you stories about CouchSurfing and traveling, some lessons in physics, or we can have a language tandem. I can also show you around in Dresden or outside in the Saxon Switzerland.
