About Me


Life is short – I enjoy every single day of it!


I love spending time with other people. I like to travel whenever I can and to stay active.
High comfort and money are not that important in my life. People and health, yes!
At all times I try to be as eco-friendly as possible. I scarcely drive my car in the city, as I use a bicycle for moving around and commuting to work even throughout our harsh winters.
If I ever have a chance to go somewhere out of the city, I go.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

★ Back in 2005 when I was still a very poor student I travelled around Asia for almost 2 months on a very low budget, i.e. getting to China by train from Poland, sleeping in all sorts of places from yurts in Mongolia to nice hotels in P.R.C.;
★ 7 days train ride on a 9 289 km route from Vladivostok to Moscow;
★ Serving in a military and becoming a corporal;
★ Lone car trips, e.g. from Edmonton, AB, Canada to Tijuana, Mexico or New Zealand crazy busy tour in just 7 days.

Teach, Learn, Share

I like to cook but I am not an advance cook. If you know less than me, I could teach you some basics. If you know more than me, I'd like to learn from you!
Same applies to baking. I love to bake and doing so relaxes me.
And last but not least I could be helpful with questions regarding computer issues, both hardware and software.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can cook some simple dishes. I might be able to solve your computer problem.
I can run or go for a bike ride with you. I can have a beer or two with you (or other healthy beverages).
