Nekrasov, a Russian 19th century poet said: “a Russian woman can stop a galloping horse and enter the burning house.” This is a powerful image of an independent woman who doesn’t really need any help or protection from men.

Being very active and creative person I love to spend my free time actively. I love swimming and sunbathng during the summer time.
I love being on the nature, laying on the grass and feeling the connection with nature, it makes me feel good and relaxed.
