I started to travel being sixteen years old girl, but I felt too old to stay at home. I learnt french and went to live in Dijon. I finished my french adventure and I still hope Iâ

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Showing my foreign friends my country, my culture and our simple polish life. Being very Polish in foreign countries as well, I want people who host me to travel with me, to share and and enjoy our cultures, our differences, our adventure.
I hosted two French guests (from Grenoble and Lyon) and I also tried to help some Mexican friends in their travel around my region. I have been travelling with my friends from Turkey, from Brasil, form Spain (Hospitality Club and friends I met somewhere some day). Cuban experience then, Mexican, global, Couchsurfing is a global experience.
I traveled with Couchsurfing in Cuba, in France and in Italy, and I still consider it to be the best way to do it. Actually, my best friends are couchsurfers, because the majority of them know how to travel, how to enjoy and how to share things with the Other.
My biggest passion is learning and improvising languages, especially Spanish and all its different accents. I enjoy speaking because I love and I'm very interested in people and my biggest expectation is to meet lots of them on my road. My travels would have no sense without people. I want to live deliberately and to share everything with the Other.
I love dancing, especially salsa and latino dances. Music and movement make me forget everything :)
I like theater; I really enjoy seing different dramas in foreign languages and contexts I'm not able to understand, so I have to work my imagination and discover the real soul of language's sound and tone.
Well... I like travelling, haha, a lot. You will see it on my face.
I'm interested in our world's problems, injustice, and the world basis. I mean, how does it work? Why does it work like that? Why are there so many contrasts? Poverty, fear, dictatorships?
Politics, more and more, dirty politics... If socialism didn't work, neather capitalism does, imagine something new!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
My lifetime is quite short and my travel experience poor.
The most amazing thing I have ever lived and I still live is loving someone very much, like never before.
The most amazing thing I have ever seen was the deepest hapiness of my friend from Peru when I made him discover the snow for the first time.
The most amazing things I have ever done were my Cuban decisions, Cuban adventures, Cuban travels.
Teach, Learn, Share
Teach - Polish, French, my way of travelling
Share - discovering my region, talking about our countries, travelling together
Learn - who are you? Where are you from? Let me listen to your language! Such a great accent! What do you like to do? What is your name? Basic questions, but so important. Well, those I learnt years ago.
