my name is Katya. But some of you know me as lucysd.
I'm lucysd on CouchSurfing
and lucysd on Hospitality Club
and lucysd on Gmail & Picasa photos
And i'm lucysd everywhere else except the few sites where some japanese girl occupied my nickname. Arrrrghhh! :)
I did my first hitchhiking trip in 2001 but i can't say that i've been to many places still. But i explored some neighbourhood countries which visas were easy to get. I've hitchhiked in Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova and Poland a lot, traveled in Lithuania, Hungary, Slovakia (cycling mostly and a bit of HH) and Abchazia (Georgia). I've made it a bit farther to the East when hitchhiked to Altay Republic in Russia (Siberia) in the summer'08. That's my poor HH expirience.
Something else about me?
I've been working as a journalist for a news agencies and a magazine in Kiev. But i quit my job in July before going to Altay trip. So now i'm about to work as a freelancer.
Besides HH i like cycling and hiking, and traveling by trains sometimes (OMG! Is she still a hitchhiker then?!).
I'm a big fan of The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Bob Dylan, Led Zeppelin and many many other '60-'70 artists (all the "The..." bands esp.) and i'm really fond of old rare psychedelic music. I'm not a big fan of nowadays bands except the Radiohead + some other ones + few trance, ethnic, world music projects. Well i can post the whole list of artists but you better check it in my last.fm profile :)
I also like Monty Python's, Futurama and "Married to the sea" comics.
OK enough of this ego trip. I'll better add some more ego pix.
