Join Couchsurfing to see Jakub’s full profile. It’s free!
My name is Jakub, but most of my friends call me just Sidor. I'm a twenty-three-year-old student from Poland. I study the law in the university and playing the organ in secondary music school. I'm into sport, music, politics, movies and books. It's always a big pleasure for me to talk about these issues.
What kind of person am I? I think that I'm not the most appropriate fellow to talk about it, since nemo iudex in causa sua (no one should be judge in his own case) how the ancient Romans used to say. At any rate, I find myself as an optimistic, friendly and talkative guy. I'm normally well-organised person, I try to schedule precisely all my daily activities, but traveling is a different kettle of fish. I like to travel without any plan, not knowing who I'll meet up, where I'll be sleeping, what's gonna happen and so on... Sometimes you sleep under the bridge, sometimes it turns out that your host from CS is a director of a large bank. Once time you drink all the night with people from all over the world by the campfire, other time you enjoy the peace and quiet of mountains or rural area. The life is full of surprises and contrasts and therefore I love it.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Well, it's impossible to choose only one. Perhaps someday I'll write a book, describe all of these things there and put a link here (xD). I love to tell various anecdotes. I always have a fistful of them at hand.
Teach, Learn, Share
A friend of mine used to say that every time you learn something new, the new neural connection is formed in the brain. I'm not a neurosurgeon, I have no idea if it's true, but I always laugh that I want to create such connections, to have them as many as possible. I'm interested in many areas of life and I'm always eager to learn something new. Travels, conversations with people from all over the world, are an excellent way to achieve this goal, to hear or learn something interesting... No doubt. Therefore I'm here (xD).
And what can I teach? Well, playing the organ, piano, keyboard and recorder. What else? Playing the pool billiards, some football skills... I can also recommend some good books, movies or music. That's all I think.
What I Can Share with Hosts
Well, I've many stories to tell, many questions to ask and many subjects to dwell on.
