About Me


Do it all. All the way.


I certainly tend to smile a lot to cover and compensate for my EMO past (darn, just unveiled it, straightforward me).
It's quite ambiguous though. Could be both beneficial if believing that good Karman will always come back, and detrimental, as contributing to rapid development of mimic wrinkles.

Above all I believe that most of everyday situations can be funnier than they seem to be, depending on individual attitude. Yes, even the scary, stressful and supposedly unpleasant ones (with all do respect, excluding funerals).

Oh, and I worship the kingdom of Disney.

Does it make me little miss sunshine already?


I strongly believe I am either Zhuangzi dreaming of being butterfly, or butterfly dreaming of being Zhuangzi.
Therefore I am either cool taoist philosopher who's name is arguably easy to pronounce (while not being acquainted with tonal language), or the cuter and smarter (in common understanding) insect from Lepidoptera order. The one free from not completely intentional suicidal thoughts, while seeing the light (that finally goes out, along with not everlasting affection).

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


A friend of mine have introduced me into this phenomenal world of travelers, dividers and conquerors.
It did become mainstream and commercial. We know it, we accept it, we say "oh well" (if you do not empathize with me here, consider plural form a vestige from communist "we").
As long as we can still invade and be invaded by total strangers found on the Internet in order to fulfill our own, noble goals and it does warm our cockles, let's do it.


A whole new world. A dazzling place I never knew.

Helpful, interesting people. Always something new and surprising to share. Sharing is caring.


Far East, sociological experience, yoga, literature, sliding down the slope on polar bears, polish poetry, pretending my life is a musical, japanese popculture, urban exploration, films, thinking about eternity, freeganizm, Disney movies, calligraphy, hiking and biking, bargain hunting.

Music, Movies, and Books

Cannot possibly enlist all I would like to. Will attempt to do it one day, maybe.
It can be explored in conversation though. It's good to talk. Talking is good.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Being able to keep the car on the road, when the weel drop off, while driving 100 km/h somewhere near glacial.

Teach, Learn, Share

Those who do not fear to do things in their lifes. Fairly responsible but not quite reasonable. At the same time those who care about others and not only mind their own business.
