I can't live without fresh air. I have to walk. or bike. or run. do something outside. I am a yoga lover. I am good at developing software. I like learning languages. (currently English French Russsian and Korean are in my disposal, coming next Dutch).
I wanted to travel outside Russia, to live other culture's life, and I used my engineering abilities to get scholarship to study in Seoul National University. I spent 7 years in Korea, and moved to Belgium. The difference in lifestyle is immense, and I like diving in a new culture.
Things I thought I can't live without, but now I CAN: parties and social networks (mobile phone starts to fall into this category as well).
if I would have a motto, it would be enjoy the moment.
