About Me


See more, Experience more, Do and not regret.


I'm active, easygoing and tolerant. Since the beginning i was really into any types of sports. I used to train swimming for 8 years and than I switched to windsurfing and kitesurfing. I'm kitesurfing instructor and during summer I work at Polish seaside teaching others how to do it. To be honest I would like to travel to and kite in all of the spots around the world.
Besides sports I'm also intersested in everything related to China and Taiwan. I've been studying Chinese for the past 3 years and I'm really excited about Chinese language, culture, history and it's economic development.
In addition I love to meet foreign people. I'm really curious about cultural diferences between me and others and I'm very eager to meet all of u!!!
In addition I'm curently doing exchange student program in Taiwan, so after I'm done with this semester I'm planning to go for a one month trip around SE Asia, and I would love to make new friends during this time.


I try to use every possible opportunity to change something in my life, meet new challenges and new people. I also like to discuss and confront different ideas.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Although I'm new to CS and I'm just staring the experience in "this" world of traveling I'm sure after I come back home from my travelling I will be more than happy to host some new friends as well as participate in many events related to CS.


I'm a new member so I don't have any experience related to CS. I heard about it from my friend who said it's amazing experience and he had the ebst time of his life when travelling with help of CS. That is why I decided to join this community.


I love all kinds of water sports (swimming, windsuring, kitesurfing, diving), languages, everything related to China and Taiwan, seeing new places, knowing different cultures and meeting new people.
