About Me

CURRENT MISSION

' to show without showing what I know without knowing'

ABOUT ME

My ears are sensitive to sounds and languages, my body feels the theatre and dancing, my eyes observe people's faces, my mind is open to creativity and curiosities, my intuition looks through the nature and my heart tries to distance itself from everything not worth it.

PHILOSOPHY

Having too little of sth - bad. Having too much of sth -also bad. So I try to find the perfect centre of anything I do and want to make my life free-flowingly balanced.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Since I've tried couchsurfing for the first time, I cannot imagine travelling without it. I met really great people on my CS way:) I don't have much of a host experience though. As a student I've lived in different places, not all of them were suitable for couchsurfing. But next year I hope to find an ideal flat for the project:D

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

My first CS experience took place 3 years ago: me and my friends set off on a train journey around Poland to visit the most interesting or unknown to us cities we thought of(we chose Warsaw, Lublin, Zamosc, Cracow, Wroclaw, Poznan).In almost all the cities we found hosts, most of them (with one exeption) friendly and helpful. They were very eager to show us around or give tips, maps and useful pieces of advice, which was invaluable. That was an unforgettable experience, worth trying somewhere else in the world. And so I did. Since then I've couchsurfed in Hungary (Budapest), Germany (Berlin, Hannover, Essen, Hamburg) and France (Paris). All of the hosts were awesome and gave a special flavour to the trips. They constitue a considerable part of my best travelling memories:)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Swimming in the glittering sea while the sun rose. Crying from overwhelming emotions while acting the first time the performance called 'Agamoumana'(street theatre) with my non-existing now theatre group in the square of a little, misterious castle in Dipholz (Germany).

Teach, Learn, Share

You can never know what another person will learn from you and what they can teach you. Anyway, if you want to learn to sing a traditional Polish song, I can teach you that:D Generally, although I'm not a great musician, I really like sharing music:)

I'm also open to learn new things and I'd really like to try things I've never done before and there is still a lot of things like that!:)
