About Me


Hitch hiking to Gorillas in a gorilla costume!


I live in Warsaw with my wife and two kids. I write for several magazines and teach English. I try to travel as much as I can in my free time... I am particularly interested in ex Soviet countries. Really want to go to New Zealand and the Pacific region in the future though.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Any questions about hitching anywhere.. send me an sms "I'm stuck in a field in Norway, where is the road to Nigeria".. I'll try to help ;)

I've hosted hundreds of people on various hospitality platforms, currently I can't host but I'd be happy to show you around - I think I'm relatively experienced at doing that, so should be able to show you the best bits!


I knew a lot of CSers before they were actually in CS, a lot of us moved over from the HC scene but I have to say that I've been pretty quiet in recent years. Beware though... I'm making a comeback!!!!


Music (psychedelic rock, garage, stoner metal, heavy metal and hard rock), Hitch hiking, conservation, fundraising, beer, writing, trains, hiking in mountains, reading biographies and historical stuff.
