About Me

Taking amazing shots from bird's eye perspective!

I used to be a web-designer and then I specilised in SEO (placing websites in Google's search results as high as possible) and that made me fun. At the moment I'm licenced UAV pilot in mass-media it is called drones. My drone has got even a nickname - CrazyCopter ;-) I take pictures and shoot video footage of the nature, tourist attractions or nice cities. It's really a lot of fun.

For the first time I went to Asia in 2005 - TransSiberian train, hitch-hikking in Mongolia and overland trip around China. All together 3 months.
In 2007 I went for 3 months to South America and from that time I do blog called
The biggest and longest trip I started in July 2009, went to Iran, Pakistan even Iraq and survived... spent beautiful 9 weeks in East Timor. I always enjoy the most, places where is very hard to get and where tourism is not developed... I spent 9 months in Australian Outback, most of the time in the bush.

I prefer to travel overland mostly by local transport looking at locals and their habits. Hitch-hikking makes me fun as well. From Bangkok to Poland I cycled - that was crazzy but awesome at the same time.

I did complete the 4-years long trip and the most chalanging part Bangkok-Poland by bicycle within 1,5 year. Now I'm again trying to settle down and find the why how to make a passive income ;-) I started new business called CrazyCopter - it is taking pictures from bird's eye perspective by so called drones - no, I do not bomb anyone.

The word IMPOSSIBLE doesn't exist for me.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


In Cracow every week I co-organised non-profit meetings of people who travel and want to share their knowledge, experience and passion with others - they did their own slideshow and then the audience could ask them qestions. After party was very interesting as well.. :))

It connects travelers and non-travelers and helps to spread the travel-spirit. Those meetings are still organised in Cracow every week :)))


Just amazing experiences with people from Couchsurfing. Never happened anything bad to me :) In Urumqi the CS community helped us a lot to get back stolen bicycle - just amaizing how helpfull they were.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Only one? Come on... Oh, well OK. So, it would be a trip from Poland to Australia all the way without flight. It took a longer while but it was my dream...

Teach, Learn, Share

I love people who like to share knowledge. I do it as well - just ask me. Sometimes it happends, that I start asking too many questions one by way. yes, I behave sometimes like a kid ;)

If your laptop or bicycle is broken down or you need some help with updating your website - don't hesitate to ask.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Chat, stories, helping with PC or websites. My bigg hobby is nature and aerial photography.
