Join Couchsurfing to see Vera’s full profile. It’s free!
I'm Russian, was born and still live in Moscow. I enjoy having interesting conversations (who doesn't?) and visiting new places (who at CS doesn't?). My biggest dream is to travel around the world, most of all I want to see as much as possible in Latin America.
Sometimes I can be crazy, spontaneous and childish. I'm stubborn and always ready to protect my point of view, but if I don't know anything about the object of the discussion, I just admit it. Naturally, I love reading good books, listening to good music, watching good movies. Highly appreciate good food and good humour.
One should use all the opportunities life offers. It's better to regret of what you have done than of what you haven't.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
So far I don't have an opportunity to host travellers as I live with my mom, but I'm always glad to show them around Moscow, to share some coffee/cocktail/whatever.
Have not tried surfing or hosting yet, but one day I will, for sure! ;)
Met some people from CS while travelling in Mexico and then in Moscow. So far it was always great!
Travelling, learning languages, reading, watching movies, going to the theatre, chatting about everything in the world.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Spent a whole amazing year in Hangzhou, China, studying, travelling and having fun.

Can tell a lot about Russia, because it's my motherland, or China, because my major is Chinese language and literature. If you're interested in language exchange - perfect, I'm in :)
