Hello! I`m in Portugal at the moment and don`t know when I`ll be back.
Please, message me for more info.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I have a feeling that I`m a very old couchsurfer being here since 2008 :)) I`ve been a host, a guide and a guest for multiple times, have been to CS parties and gatherings, organized them, I even was a Minsk CS ambassador for a while :) The experience have been fun and great in most cases, sometimes even incredible, this is why I`m here.
I love CS for its great opportunities. First of all, for me it`s a chance to meet amazing people - both in my hometown and abroad.
To be precise, what we get with CS:
- company of great people,
- acquaintance with new cultures (both being a host or a guest) and new interesting things,
- when surfing - seeing homes and lives of real people instead of tourist stuff,
- foreign languages practice,
- feeling a kind helpful human being when hosting and admiration of people`s kindness and hospitality being a guest.
LOVE and MAGIC - above all!
Nature, Music, People, Languages, you won`t believe - Traveling! ;)
Alternative living in harmony with oneselves and the environment.
Exploring, expanding, growing!
Changing, facing challenges, feeling, living!
- live music
Music, Movies, and Books
One love! True magic, power! It`s something very special and meaningful for me. It enlightens my life, opens doors to other worlds, fills me up with beauty and makes me very happy. I adore dancing with electronic music! My best therapy ever!
And live music of course! :) What can be better than a cozy home jam session with friends? Only same thing in nature... mmm! :)
To mention a few of my fav authors: Ernest Hemingway, Gabriel García Márquez, Erich Maria Remarque, Heinrich Böll, Sergei Dovlatov, etc.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Teach, Learn, Share
I can TEACH you how to cook a few belarusian dishes, to speak Russian or Belarusian - my native languages.
I enjoy LEARNing different languages (now interested in Portuguese since I`m going to Portugal :)) and `immersing` into different cultures.
Currently interested in studying Polish and would be glad to have a chance to practice French.
What I Can Share with Hosts
I can share my time, care and attention :) I can share a bit of my Belarusian culture (even teach you some Belarusian or Russian if you are interested for some reason :))), can tell you about `the last dictatorship in Europe` :), I can cook for you and wash dishes :) I can just be your friend.
