Earlier I used to think that I wanted to see as many places as possible, but now I know that the most important thing is meeting people on my way, listening them and learn from them.
I live in Lębork that is a town on the Leba and Okalica rivers in Middle Pomerania region, north-western Poland with some 37,000 inhabitants. Lebork is situated in great location, 30 km from Leba and The Baltic Sea, about 60 km from Tricity, 2 km from the lake Lubowidz, etc. In the neighbourhood you can find beautiful forests, cycle and horse routes, ice-rink (in the winter), the cinema, pubs, restaurants, etc. Believe me, in spite of the fact that Lębork is quite small town, you wouldn't be bored with me:).

I'd like to live freely and let live. Everything has own timing and sense.
“To move, to breathe, to fly, to float,
To gain all while you give,
To roam the roads of lands remote,
To travel is to live.”
― Hans Christian Andersen, The Fairy Tale of My Life: An Autobiography

I love traveling, meeting new people, learning from them about different cultures, cooking for friends and tasting new meals, watching mysterious films or comedies and listening to good music. I collect fridge magnets from around the World. I love reading books, learning new languages.
Nowadays I'm studying coaching because I'm very interested in personal development and motivation stuff.
I'm keen on sport, especially running, cycling, ice-skating, roller-blading, body-pump and so on. I like playing board games, cards, dice, etc. Last year I've finished my first halfmarathon and also runmagaddon recruit.
