About Me

I'm working on a list of interesting, free things you can do in Warsaw:
https://workflowy.com/s/09b9YkGeuD

This year I came back from a 9-month trip around Africa, Europe and Asia.

RULES:
-Please no requests more than 14 days before the date of your arrival.
-Read the part about my home.
-I have health issues so I might not be energetic/interactive or up to drinking/partying
-I'm offering a peaceful place to sleep, cook, take a shower. +coffee and tea
-I usually work at home on my laptop during the day(web development/programming), but you can hang out if you want to :)
-If you're coming with a friend tell more about them than just their name.

"Here's to our lives being meaningless.
A brick through every window.
And how beautiful it is because freedom doesn't have a purpose."
-Pat The Bunny

I am a very rational person(hope so). To give you an example, I'm NOT interested in things like homeopathy, healing crystals, anti-vaxxing, organized religion or new world order theories.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Some of the best experiences in my life come from CS.

Interests

There are few more eye-opening things, than walking and camping alone in the mountains.

I'm not really a vegan, but I'm trying to eat less products of animal origin, because of the environment and taste. I'm on a low-FODMAP diet now.

I'm into some strange music genres like spectral, shoegaze, noise, minimalism, fractal, drone, etc. Would like to know more good things.
