About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to become a great rebreather diver

ABOUT ME

I believe that a single journey can change one's life forever. This is what happened to me when I moved from a small Polish town, aged 17, to Europe's biggest melting pot - city of London to do two postgraduate degrees. That marked off the beginning of me nosing for what is authentic, challenging and inspiring culturally. Building meaningful connections across cultures has enabled me to respond to such differences with curiosity, respect and as expression of commitment to myself and to others. Also, that appreciation of diversity brought me a new strength and perspective to engage in totally unique life experiences. I learned to set aside my fears, delve into the depths of the ocean and into my inner self.

My desire to conquer the world has been growing enormously and, hence, inspired to do quite a number of astonishing things along the 5-year long journey I am constantly extending. Still, there is so much more to be explored, either underwater or on the surface. I hope to always remain a traveler and a diver, in and out of the ocean, in body, mind and soul.

Lastly, I follow a vegetarian/vegan diet with only just a bit of fish (if the country is famous for its fish or my host family eats one, i will join). But, NO MEAT, please. I try to stay fit and healthy to live longer and travel more!

PHILOSOPHY

"The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only one page" - Saint Augustine

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Through the eyes of my globetrotting, I would like to encourage others in experiencing traveling in such a way that it makes a difference, not only for me, but for the lives of those I touch and the world which we live in.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

It changed everything and for good. The experiences and the people I have met since I joined the website 5 years ago just totally influenced me, my thinking, my approach towards life and how I treat others. During my travels I have met some incredibly generous people that helped me to make my journey safe, fun and unforgettable. Cannot imagine myself going to a hostel any more.
