Motto: Be Simple Creative!

- "Making the simple complicated is commonplace; making the complicated awesome simple, that's creativity." ~ Charles Mingus
- "Simplicity is about substracting the obvious, and adding the meaningful." ~ John Maeda
- "Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away." -- Antoine de Saint-Exupery
- "We suffer from not we don't have, but mostly from what we have."

I'm a happy father of 2 children (4.5 years old son and 1.5 year old daughter) and love to spend time with them and my lovely wife. But most of the time I spend working on my MBA from anywhere (software development is evolved to be my best skill after I math study in Lviv University).

I moved to Lviv with my family 15+ ago and liked it so much that can not find better place to live in the world (except of few tropical places), so I think you would want to stay in our lovely city at least for few days to explore it a bit and will love it.

I like to meet new people and will be glad to help them being as a host or as a guest.
I mostly have chance to travel North America, and also use this site to find good places to stay and connect to local people when I'm in the city. I'm open to home exchange and couch surf ing options too!

I have tent, sleeping bag/pad and you would find it crazy, but I find it more comfortable to sleep on a floor (which I think it is good for my back) than on a bed, so I don't even need a comfy couch, but I don't mind to trying out new sleeping surfaces. Clean 2 m2 and access to a bathroom is all that I really need. :)

If you are nature lover and want to go to mountains (e.g. Carpathian) I'm always ready and can share a second sleeping place in my small tent! :)

I prefer traveling by plane/train or by bike. I don't like cars and forgot how to drive them (my wife overtook it :), but we don't have and need car (at least yet).

I like to be super-flexible and I'm minimalist with some sense of perfection.
I would like to learn more on simple living not being bound to once city/country - life without borders.

Listing apartments here help me to meet different people and to travel other places, not mentioning paying raising bills & support/cleaning fees and investing remaining to make the most comfortable and cleanest place to stay in Lviv for our guests.
I would love to simply do home exchange with other owners to avoid involving money component, though it is not the most flexible possibility.

You are welcome in my home city Lviv - a capital of Western Ukraine, a unique city you won't find anywhere else, and if you are here, you will most likely find good people like you and want to stay for a while! :)

3 days is average recommended minimum by guests to explore Lviv. The good about city is that you won't need a car - it is pretty much walkable, bad - it is not very bike friendly (yet - there is some progress), though it has good public transportation which will get you to anywhere.


P.S. I'm Evangelical Christian so I posses most common true Christian character traits which you can expect from me.
