About Me

ABOUT ME

I like foreign languages, am a little bit freak about Polish and English (and their grammars). I'm fond of snorkeling and swimming generally. Love reading books and enjoy reading popular science and travel magazines. I'm crazy about Turkey. And well, I'm a little bit maniac about giant pandas. So, all in all, just a normal girl:)

PHILOSOPHY

What is most important to me is people who I meet on my way of life. They change our lives, add something to them and it is only later that we understand what we have gained.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I'm new to Istanbul so for now am just checking out the meeting options available, while I'm still getting settled here. If you also live on the Asian side, do not hesitate to msg me, I would be happy to meet some neighbours :D

I used to be very active in Warsaw CS but now am not really sociable. But I always enjoy talking, writing and helping so don't hesitate to write to me. We can always meet.

For current events and in case of questions regarding traveling in Warsaw, meeting people there, checking out what is going on in CS Warsaw now, please check out the Warsaw CS Group:

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

- The Weekly Meetings - I used to organise them when I was an ambassador. Now obviously not very active in the CS Warsaw..

Interests

Turkeeeey!, travelling, getting to know foreign cultures, meeting with friends, listening to people and their stories, reading books, listening to music, singing, learning languages

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: Nickelback, Metallica, The Black Keys, Clem Leek, Turkish music generally (Emre Altug, Ragga Oktay, M. Sandal, Tarkan, Sertab Erener etc.), Celine Dion, Adele, Duffy, some individual songs of other artists.
Books: M. Balogh, Nora Roberts, J. Quinn, E. James, L. Kleypas, etc. (so mainly romance books, both in English and Polish) but also J.L. Wiśniewski, O. Sacks, W. Wharton..
Movies: I feel sentimental about The Blue Lagoon (with Brooke Shields), The Crow (with Mark Dacascos) and The Rage: Carrie 2 (with Emily Bergl) but in general watch most willingly movies with S. Bullock, A. Jolie, K. Heigl and J. Depp;)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Two things: An evening on the desert in Marsa Alam, Egypt, with the sea, the sky, the stars and nothing else. A truly metaphysical experience for me.

Teach, Learn, Share

Well, I can teach Polish, though was trained rather to teach English (at uni).
I would like to learn foreign cultures (esp. Turkish) and languages and that wouldn't be a problem here;)
And I am willing to share anything I know even if I don't know yet that it's of any value;)

Austria, Czech Republic, Egypt, Germany, Greece, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, Turkey, United Kingdom
