About Me

Hello, I`m in Portugal at the moment and don`t know when I`m back :)
Please, message for more info.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Great and fun experiences in most cases, sometimes just incredible, this is why.
What I love the most about CS is meeting amazing people. There's a very high concentration of them!

Couchsurfing was my favourite hobby back in the days. I was enjoying it in all possible ways:
- as a guide for my city's visitors,
- as a host,
- as a CS party girl on a regular basis and sometimes as a party organizer.
Then I started traveling and experiencing the role of a CS guest. Then I got to South Portugal, fell in love with the area - and CS was abandoned for some years :)


Beauty, love and magic.
Alternative harmonious ways of living.
Exploring, expanding, growing.
Changing, embracing challenges, feeling life.

Music, Movies, and Books

I adore music! So powerful! It enlightens my life, opens doors to other worlds, fills me up with beauty and makes me very happy. I love dancing, it's my best therapy ever.

A few of my fav authors that come to mind: 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 languages (Portuguese now) and immersing into different cultures and people's personal worlds.

I'll be happy to SHARE fun and lovely moments with you.

What I Can Share with Hosts

* my time and attention,
* a bit of Belarusian culture, like, teaching you some Belarusian or Russian if you are interested for some reason :),
* horror stories about `the last dictatorship in Europe` aka Belarus,
* cooking borshch for you and maybe even washing dishes after :),
* being your friend.
