About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To finish the right race, to fight the good fight, to play the right team;
Life is a journey not a destination

ABOUT ME

Curious, open minded, wandering the globe and wondering at people.
Trying to give back to life and making a positive difference to satisfy my deep inner needs.

PHILOSOPHY

Aide-toi, le ciel t'aidera!
(old French proverb)
which means in a lose translation:
"You will see it, when you believe it"

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Hosting and surfing is a great way to enjoy life and make new friends.
I had so far many excellent encounters with people with whom if was fun to: cook together, share stories and jokes, argue on the superiority of book over e-book, play music, listen, stay quiet together and of course travel!
CS makes me believe there are still plenty of authentic and caring people, so the World is not as bad as they show it on TV...

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Growing in experience and in admiration to the CS community;
getting more addicted with every new CS experience :-)

Interests

Travels and Africa! with the ambition to visit every country of the African continent. So far made to only 8 but will hit the road again soon.
Stretching my horizons, learning, smiling to the unknown, listening to stories.
Some other stuff too: outdoor, nature, hiking, cooking, horse-back riding, photography, sailing, running.

Music, Movies, and Books

Classical music, all kind of rock, French and Spanish music, local radio-stations, modern jazz, African vibrations!
Books: travelling stories, hundreds of others (promoting Polish modern classics - Mrozek, Kapuscinski, Szymborska).
I can read maps for hours.
I buy far too many books and then try to read four at the same time...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

More than one:
Gazing at stars in Ethiopia;
46 km trek thru the rainforest and mountains of Uganda;
Climbing the Mayan ruins in the middle of nowhere;
Also: admiring first days of Spring; contemplating the flames of the fireplace at my home; flavor of a home-made bread; smile of O...
There are wonders everywhere.
