About Me


I always walk when I talk on the phone.. I hate bathtubes. I don't like agressive and over pessimistic people. Coffee addict.


I don't think I've managed to develop my own personal philosophy yet, but I would like to adopt my Icelandic friend's zen approach: "Don't worry and don't be stressed, in two years all of this won't matter."

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


When, right now I am not sure where I am living. I have been surfing my friends' , strangers' and CS couches for almost a year now. I had some temporary homes for a month or two, but this vagabondish lifestyle is likely to continue until spring 2015. So for now, I am not really able to host. However, I am always up for a meeting, a drink or a walk. And as soon as I get my place, you are all encouraged to write me Cs requests!


Overall positive, although I did have one wierd experience.


Reading, cooking and eating and drinking wine and talking with my friends (or random people). Picnics. Running and singing in the streets-sometimes. (Photo)journalism, documentaries. XXI. Russian language and literature. Any literature. Making clothes. Graphic novels. Mint tea. Swimming. Night swimming, even better. Hitch-hiking. Pretending to be a sailor. Geopolitics. Theatre. Sea. Knitting. Sleepless nights.

Music, Movies & Books

If we CS together, you can ask me this question. A great debate might follow.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Was a train driver for a night.
Escaped a (self-proclaimed) mafia chasing me and my friends with a car.

Teach, Learn, Share

I wanna learn : to play accordeon, to climb, Russian, Spanish, tap dance. I can teach : languages, how-to-make-simple-and-cheap-meals, how to deal with French bureaucracy, how to make a pinhole camera and lot of other (very likely useless) things.
