About Me

Well... I am nice and open (as some of my references say) ;)
And seriously, I have 4 big passions: travelling, cooking, social psychology and human-computer interaction. My motto is to collect as many experiences in life as possible. And the best way is by travelling. I am a biker by heart, most of my journeys were on bike or involved some nice biking (with sacks, travel-cooking, camping and all the fun that comes with it). I am an observer - I feel great in new places coz it gives me the possibility to participate in some way in a different culture. I am also rather nature oriented, which means that I rather prefer off-road and off-city trips, though cities have their privileges as well - eg food :) I love cooking and baking and tasting all sorts of different things, so food is always an important part of my trips. Usually as souvenirs I bring home some spices or other regional specialities :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I am
Coming back here after a looong break. I host, I travel and I used to organise (a LOT). I organised all sorts of events, meetings, parties and trips in Warsaw, like Warsaw Monthly Meetings, Warsaw Spring Camp - Scary Warsaw, theme parties, bike trips, BBQs...

I have been an active member of CS since 2009. I hosted, I surfed, I organised meetings. It has been great! I did have a bit of a break recently, it allowed me to focus on my family for a while. But now we are back in the game!
