About Me


We've been living in Hamburg for some time now, with some breaks for shorter and longer travels. Now our focus is on a bit more long term plans so we'll be staying where we arenow for a bit longer.


Positive, honest and openminded married Poles - Filip & Basia. We've quit our corporate life some years ago and took off from Poland directly to NZ where we lived for a year. Since then, we've been to Australia, Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Myanmar, Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Honduras, Costa Rica, Bulgaria, Macedonia and Spain.


We love to travel and we're trying to live our lives as a one big adventure. Always work to live, never live to work.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


a lot of places and people with many happy moment and some occasional disappointments. This community started with a great idea to enjoy the full local travel experience which is far more then just having a bed and roof over your head. Sadly it's already spoiled by many people who are not using it for meeting other people and cultures, but just for the economical or sexual factor. This is why we're using this tool less and less often. We are aware though that there are still plenty of places where the great primary idea of CS is being kept as a priority. And for those great people we're still here.
