Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I have no fun of using sites like airbnb etc. Sharing economy suits me better and it is likely to appeal to me more plus proved quality! I get hooked!

Interests

i am kinda book worm, so reading, writing, working on reviews, observing letters and other silly things. I could pass hours collecting books or stories from newspapers. I am still figuring stuff out.

and Achtung...I am really crazy with recycling...you wont imagine that throwing garbage can be really inspirational!! I feel with it almost like having deep good breath because I do really hate wasting...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I went to Alaska completely spontaneous at my 22 never been before abroad to such distances to work over there for 3 months with Eskimos as a fish processor, unbelievable that i made it! It was one of my biggest memory which built up my character and self confidence (but not with CS - shame on me!)

I visited Israel in Nov, 2012 during war time and operation Pillar of Defense. One day before my departure I heard breaking news that one of the public bus exploded in Tel Aviv where I supposed to be in very next couple of hours. My first night in TLA drinking, smoking, partying as there is no tomorrow with israeli musician and soldiers back from Gaza Strip....Then came a big storm ...I cant imagine any better and it still hard to describe such an emotional pack of forthcoming days when i went for a tournee with israeli band across Israel to the Syrian border and kibbutz . It just simply blown me away.

Over the years, I've been a bit of a nomad. I am still testing my ability to restart and dwell in completely new surroudings ( I had been living in Poland, Germany, USA, in Switzerland right now...what's next?)

I go ahead with my own literary review work as a Freelancer. anyway, might be better to write something like a book - my book!!

Dead Sea experience is one of the happiest memories of my life. That is silly to say but maybe beause my lack of swimming skills..and the option that you can remain afloat ? I do really hate swimming!! Scared of it!!

i am avid reader and not only so because I love to do interviews with people having interesting background as well. Mostly artists, photographers, illustrators and filmmakers for Polish newspapers. Their stories all together are a well of inspirations for me and I could work my fingers to the bone for anyone to make sure that people will read a good story or book review!

Zurich Film Festival 2015 - I did some volunteer job for the Festival. I quite fancy facing a challenge ,so it was kind of it..I still feel like soo excited when I only think about it. Imagine having shifts for DIOR after party the whole night seeing VIP gals or ticketing first, then watching some alternative movies which you really love just for free!! Without saying is that you get a bunch of new people who are truly film buffs to hang around ...Simply awesome!!
