Favourite thing about Tour Leading: Meeting people, visiting new places, practicing English, gaining new experiences and new friends.

Favourite place to visit and why: Mongolia and China. Want to visit Japan, Oman, Iran, Former Soviet republics - want to know more about culture and people's life there.

On the road tips: Be positive and cheerful, sometimes patient and remember your passion for travelling.

Hobbies, achievements and dreams: Horse riding, cycling, travelling, driving and reading.
