About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Exploring my beloved Istanbul and looking for work there

ABOUT ME

I'm an open-minded and optimistic person, who is curious about meeting new people. I love discovering differences more than similarities, that's why I enjoy meeting people from all over the world. I adore arabic culture, dance to latino and african rhytmes, read german books, drink polish vodka:)and enjoy the life everyday. I'm intersted in languages- I'd love to learn as much as possible. I can't live without music (from all over the wrold but also rock and reggae) and books.

PHILOSOPHY

"It's better to regret something you did, than something you did not do."

Peace & love

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I haven't made big experience. Actually I wasn't able to make experience in CS, cause I've been working and living for over a year in Planet Paprika Hostel in Istanbul, where we hosted about 4000 people so far. It has been always wonderful experience and I feel a bit lonely now living with only one flatmate. :) So it doesn't matter for me if it's only a coffee or walk, I am sure it can be a life changing experience sometimes.

Interests

I can't imagine my life without: books music (world music but also metal, rock and reggae) learning languages (currently I want to learn swahili, persian and kurdish & I want to polish my turkish, arabic and spanish) meeting new people friends laugh discovering new places

Music, Movies & Books

I can't imagine my life without MUSIC and I prefer Rock & Metal, Reggae & World Music

I love movies but I enjoy watching them with somebody. My favourites are: Leon the Professional, Donnie Darko, Crossing the Bridge - the sound of Istanbul, Gegen die Wand, Mar aderno, 21 gramms and many more...

If I was living on a desert island books would be the thing that I'd take with me :) I love books of Elif Safak, Carlos Ruiz Zafon, Ryszard Kapuściński and the ones about arabic culture.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you german, as I'm the teacher of this beautiful language :) Being vegetarian, I can cook you something vegetarian. Being Polish I can party hard with you. :) Being optimist I can share the positive attitude to life with you :)
