Since 2006 I have been an active member of a big and famous social travelling website traveling around the world and receiving guests at home. As a teacher and translator of languages and as a traveler, I am used to dealing with people from different countries and cultures yet learning every day to be even more curious and tolerant. I always try to treat the place I am staying in with the due respect to the hosts and neighbors as this is the approach I hope my guests will take when staying at my place.
As some of my friends do not share my (website hidden) (social travelling - hospitality exchange) hobby, and I would love to travel with them, here I am on Airbandb looking for potential hosts on behalf of me and my friends. Who I am traveling with at the moment will be known at the moment I will be sending you our request.
As for me, I am a quick thinker and I am a talker. I used to be a nerd))))) and though now I enjoy a good party, sometimes even a wild one, I still believe that books are our best friends. I mostly read books on languages, traveling, psychology, education, general finance, general science, etc to be able to converse with my students on different topics. Yet with my bad memory for names, please do not torture me with titles or names. I simply cannot remember))))
I love music. And it also means I can listen to anything but Russian chanson or pop music and country music, and if it fits my mood, I will most probably like it. When I can choose though, I prefer jazz.
I really enjoy a good conversation especially when people have their own opinions and they are not shy or lazy or insecure to speak up. If somebody agrees too easily with my not so politically correct opinion, it is quite disappointing))))
I am the one who wakes up with a smile and keeps it through the day, though I get easily upset as a typical Aries))))) And then I get easily happy just a few minutes later))) There is always a rainbow after a storm. If you believe in horoscopes, I am also a Dragon)))).
I really like going out to any traditional or unconventional place: when traveling I try to experience as much of the local culture as possible and to drag myself out of my comfort zone as far as I can push. I am not a risk taker though. Or rather I am not careless.
One of my recent hobbies is cooking so I am into trying anything that is solid or liquid, spicy or bland… if I like something and you could show me how to cook it that will definitely make my day!
I love learning to dance. And people I meet around the globe have taught me a bit of salsa, forro, samba... Hopefully more to come!)))
I am not really into sports yet I love walking and try to avoid using the public transport when traveling. I think you can see a lot more on foot.
