"Carpe diem", seize the day, and also, "treat others as you would have them treat you". I have already discovered the meaning of life but I not giving it away here yet ;-)
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I got introduced to this just before going to Seattle. I think CS can help me get around America in a fun way. Back in Uppsala I have several couches to rent!
I am completly new to this. Perhaps one experience would be just now when I flew to Seattle without knowing where to stay. I end up staying the first days in Olympia, the capital of Washington with someone my mother went to school with in Poland and has not seen since.
I got interested i politics quite early. Other interests have always been reading and traveling. I wanted to study litterature or art history. I chickend out though and chose something that had a safer job market ;-) I am quite fasinated with discovering new cultures and people. There is nothing better then to experience the diversity of the world!
- art history
- political science
Music, Movies, and Books
My favorite writers are Gabriel Garcia Marques who wrote my favorite book "Love in the Time of Cholera". Ryszard Kapuscinski, for his brilliant observations of the world. Favorite poets are Hafiz, Lord Byron, Oscar Wilde and Bob Dylan. Favorite movie is "Dead poets society" because it encourages us to follow our dreams. Music is very mixed.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I visited the Imperial gardens in Tokyo the spring of 2009. I have always liked gardens but I have never seen anything like this. They say in Japan that you could spend a whole lifetime just waiting to see the perfect cherry blossom, and it would not be a wasted life and this was the perfect time of the year.
Teach, Learn, Share
If you whant to give a complement to a person in Japan, tell them that they have a small face. Works best with men ;-)
