About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Nepal

ABOUT ME

- Sir, where is going this train?
- Nowhere.
- That's good, i'm just going there...
______

I was born under a bad sign and i still love to make my life difficult.
______

i ended my sociology studies in Lublin and now i'm still looking for my place to live. right now i live in Gdansk and work in Polish Nordic Walking Federation's office. travelling is definitely my passion, because thanks to it i can broaden my horizons! i'm interested in music, books, history and travels - i'd love to know new people and new places. i'm fascinated by travelling by trains, hitch-hiking and hiking.
people call me often "Pasazerka", which means "passenger girl" and it perfectly describes me, because i can't stay in one place for long.

i'm little bit shy and i prefer to listen than to talk but when you asked me about something which is my passion probably i will talk and talk and talk and can't stop :)

I travel like St Christopher !
You are the hardest of hardcore travelers, and may one day be our patron saint. There is no challenge that is too much for you, but don't get crazy, because you are not immortal...yet.
What type of traveler are you?

PHILOSOPHY

If you dance - dance to the bitter end, if you drink - drink to empty yours glass and then throw it in world's eyes.
