About Me

Sure thing it's the worst part to complete.
You could call me an environmentalist, permaculturist, communitarianist or just Earth-lover ;)
I feel I'm just the part of the Universe, and my mission on this planet is to do good and celebrate Life by embracing and fighting to preserve its beauty and wonder.

PHILOSOPHY

"Positive attitude changes the world. Everythings seems to be simple and easy, when you believe in your abilities, your strenght."

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Stories... I've met many Couch travellers and it's not a coincidence that they are great people one and all.
They're smart, sensitive to the world around them, fully embracing the spirit of sharing and discovering the world.

Interests

Cultures - learning about them, getting to know them, understanding people, their language, and their worldviews.
Jumping out of airplanes. Flying. Usually with a parachute.
Exploring all kinds of roofs in the city.
Nature - mother Earth, and that's why Permaculture, sustainability and self-sufficiency by cooperativism.
And of course lots of travel to fulfil aforementioned ")

Music, Movies & Books

I'm more into activist documentaries, that change your perspective on crucial, life-sustaining issues and so, if you want a CHANGE please watch: 'Home', 'Zeitgeist' (3 parts), 'Inside Job', and look for 'Permaculture' on web and on filmsforaction.org if you want a SOLUTION (*after being depressed having watched Zeitgeist. and basically True Activist tells the truth: http://www.trueactivist.com/list-of-top-10-documentaries-watch-online-for-free/

Films - one of my favourites: 'The Dreamers' and 'Garden State', 'Educators', 'The Fountain', 'The Bloom Brothers' and more.
Musica: Pretty Lights, Armand Arnar, Coldplay, Blue Foundation, Mumford and Sons, Iron&Wine, Gramatik, Massive Attack, Archive, Air, Milky Chance, Yann Tiersen, Oliver Shanti, Michal Lorenc...
Dead Poets Society, Charles Eisenstein and Ryszard Kapuscinski books..
Un indovino mi disse (Tiziano Terzani), Cherry Time at Bullerby ;)

One Amazing Thing I've Done

It's a good topic to talk about when csurfing ")
I've seen people in Africa more happy then most of the guys in the 'western' world. I've been in the community in the woods, where people lived peacefully in harmony with nature..., In my life I want to (and do!*update) promote such values and lifestyle on my farm in Poland - if you want to know more, have a look at our NGO's website: http://harmoniakultury.org/?lang=en

Teach, Learn, Share

It's not problem to make someone a happy, optimistic person enjoying life and brightening up the lives of others. You just have to realise that happiness never decreases from being shared (not my words, but Buddha's)

Come to my farm and I will teach you organic gardening that will change your life for ever ^^
