I have travelled in India, Nepal, Thailand, Laos and South Africa (+ a few days in Swaziland, Mozambique and Lesotho), Western and Eastern Europe. I love the idea of building an international travelling community and creating close relationships between guests and hosts. I used to play classical guitar quite well as a child and am trying to get back in shape now. I like literature, especially modern Russian and Ukrainian writers. Wrote my thesis on Sasha Sokolov. I play video games and I did some modding for Fallout 3 and New Vegas.
