About Me

Hi! My name is Antoni :) I'd be thrilled to host you wherever you are from and whatever you do in life!

I am finishing my MA in Law. Academically and professionally I am mostly engaged into mediation, negotiations and energy. My hobbies also revolve around running, sailing, history of art, history, architecture and analogue photography.

I always say and believe when life shuts one door it is only because it is to open a better one for us. One which we would never ever foresee and anticipate how good they would be for us.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love to meet people, especially foreigners, be inspired by their stories and inspire them by mine. With so much world has to offer it would be a tragic waste of chances just to live an ordinary life.

Music, Movies, and Books

THE UNBEARABLE LIGHTNESS OF BEING by Milan Kundera

("Isn't an event all the more significant and unique the more cases it took for it to happen? Only coincidence can look like the messenger of fate. What is inevitable, what is expected, what is repeated daily is mute. Only coincidence speaks to us.")
("Only an unsentimental attitude that does not usurp the right to life and freedom of a partner can bring both of them happiness.")
("It is possible that we are unable to love precisely because we want to be loved, that is, because we demand something of the other (love), rather than approaching him without any demands and wanting only their presence.")

CALL ME BY YOUR NAME

("The meaning of the river flowing is not that all things are changing, so that we cannot encounter them twice, but that some things stay the same only by changing.”)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Took part in a charity ultramarathon - run my first marathon with a man who runs ultra for charity (e.g. 620 km across Iceland in 11 days and 780 km across Poland in 10 days).

Did volunteering in rural Panama.

Hitchhiked around 40 000 km in total across Europe, Middle East, Africa and Central America.

Spent 2019/2020 New Year's Eve sailing on the Baltic Sea.

As a 19-year old fresh high-school graduate during the summer holidays I wanted to shot interviews on a music festival in Italy and despite having no experience nor accreditation I got full backstage access and met wonderful artists and shot interviews. :)

What I Can Share with Hosts

I would love to show you the city around, walk you off the beaten path places, tell you intersting stories about history, culture, economy, politics.

Teach you how to negotiate effectively. :p
