About Me

Taking amazing shots from bird's eye perspective!

I used to be a web-designer and then a 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 called drones. My drone has got even a nickname - CrazyCopter ;-) I'm take pictures and shoot video footage of the National Parks, tourist attractions or nice cities. It's really a lot of fun.

I left my country 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 8 months in Australian Outback, most of the time 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

I did 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.
