About me

Hey,
I am an artist and independent filmmaker from Armenia, currently resting from travels. I am now in Yerevan, Armenia. Although I have been resting from travels already almost a year, traveling is my way of being and a big part of my philosophy. That is how I get my knowledge about different cultures and that is how I really enjoy interacting with them. I love sharing my inspirations and skills, among which - Yoga, arts and crafts, body-art, trekking, pottery, making movies, creative text writing etc. Since I love traveling, I also love hosting people whenever I have a chance for it. At the moment I live in Yerevan, in my parents' place, where hosting people is not convenient, but I can offer a very nice place a bit out of Yerevan, a hostel-kind place in rural area, with organic food and great views from the window, in the house of my friends. I often need a host too, so I will be really grateful if you will provide me a couch when I will restart traveling again;-)

I would like to volunteer organizing a few meetings and presentations of BW in Yerevan / Armenia soon, so any advice would be great. Best regards

Group

Eco-village in Armenia

I am one of the establishing team members of this newly started Ecovillage and I believe that a group like this, in BeWelcome, can add a lot of essential aspects to what we do. We are willing to organize a continuous flow of visitors from other countries / cultures to our eco-village in order to have dynamic cultural exchange, ideas exchange, fun and sharing non-stop. I also believe in no-money communication that is why I chose BeWelcome.
