About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To inspire and to become my best self!

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 - the city of London to do two postgraduate degrees. That started my search 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 dive 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 10- 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.

I am very compassionate and share huge love for animals of all sizes and breed. I especially love penguins, dolphins and dogs. I believe that we can learn a lot from animals and I treat them with as much respect, love and care as if they were human creatures.

Lastly, I am a 60% vegetarian / 30% vegan and 10% lover of condensed milk and sour cream on jacket potatoes. That means I drink loads of freshly cold pressed juices, smoothies and eat heaps of salads and vegetarian foods. Some of my favourite cuisines are Indian, Japanese, Indonesian, Italian and Eastern European. I also have a super soft spot for Vietnamese paper rolls with thick peanut sauce and Vietnamese iced coffees.

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 have totally influenced me, the way I think and see the world, my approach towards life and how I treat others.
During my travels I have met some incredibly generous people who helped me to make my journey safe, fun and unforgettable. I would like to return that kindness and compassion in my interactions with others.
