I was born and raised in Ukraine and then moved to the US when I was 16. I have lived in five different states, finished college and graduate school and after that worked as avionics systems engineer.
Then in September 2011 I quit my job to travel around the world for seven months. A year and a half later, I am still on the road, traveling, writing for my blog (just search for "Dima's Corner") and starting a lifestyle coaching service to help others.
When I travel, I enjoy staying away from tourist groups and tour guides and instead explore the city the local way. Because of that, I couchsurf a lot (currently 61 positive reviews!), stay in many hostels and guesthouses and occasionally get a hotel room or split a room on AirBnB if I travel with a group of friends.
I speak English, Russian, Ukrainian and working on my Spanish.
Thanks for reading! :)
