About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To work out my life mission......have fun, be happy and travel. To learn Polish!

ABOUT ME

Me - usually friendly, open and smiley person though sometimes I feel a little shy. Im half polish to a polish mother english father. I enjoy talking but equally as much enjoy listening. I enjoy meeting new people, getting to know them and making friends. I love to travel but dont do it enough. I have no idea what I want to do with my life, but maybe you do. Im trying to be happy in my life and live it to the full.

PHILOSOPHY

Happiness is a state of mind.

Heard about the guy who fell off a skyscraper? On his way down past each floor, he kept saying to reassure himself: So far so good... so far so good... so far so good. How you fall doesn't matter. It's how you land!

If you can't handle my worst you don't deserve my best!!!!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Just getting started in the couch surfing way of travelling so looking forward to being hosted and hosting when I can. I love to tell every one I meet about this amazing, beautiful, inspiring project.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Meet some great people, made some friends, drunk some wodka and watched a sunrise....I look forward to hosting people when I am able to..and meeting all you wonderful couch surfers.

Interests

I love watching european film, watching street entertainment drinking vodka and then doing crazy dancing. Hearing about peoples tattoo's. I love ashtanga yoga, rock climbing and cycling down hill. I love to people watch. I like to take pictures and love lomograph camera's. I'm a nature lover; sun, rain, wind, snow. I like to feel free and walk around with bare feet. Making and talking about the joys of carrot juice. dancing all night and sleeping all day. drinking games, Crossing boarders mentally and physically: culture, language, religion.

Music, Movies & Books

Too many to list but I will try:

films; three colours blue, la hein, darling, pi, run lola run, cinema paradiso, eternal sunshine of the spotless mind, like water for chocolate, Frida, 21 grames, Malena, the motorcycle diaries, touching the void, city of god, amores perros, before sun rise documentaries.

Music; any as long as it has a beat, thought and rhythm; hip-hop, classical, folk, blues, jazz, techno, rock, reggae, ska, dance.....so every thing!

books; unbearable lightness of being, life of pi, nineteen-eighty four, king lear, the bell jar, wasted...anything by michael pollen, noam chomsky and andrian mitchell.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Woodstock festival ;)

Teach, Learn, Share

There is something to learn from everyone whether they are in our lives for a long time or a short time.

I love to learn new things and could teach you english slang, card games, and some druken yoga,.......if you wish!

I would love to learn polish and spanish, to cook anything vegerterian, how to be better at chess, more card games....Though if you could teach me anything at all I would think of you with a happy heart and a smile on my face.
