About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To finish the right race, to fight the good fight, to play the right team

ABOUT ME

Curious and open minded. Trying to wander and wonder at life as a journey not a destination.
I'm not sure if we live only once so I want to be responsible for my choices.
Few things can satisfy our inner needs: giving back to life and making a positive difference to the world are one of them.

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 or surfing is a great way to enjoy life and make new friends. You can usually do it in simple ways: cooking together, telling stories, joking, arguing on superiority of a book over an e-book, playing music, listening, staying quiet and of course traveling!
CS makes me believe that there are 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 4 but will hit the road again when I return to Europe.
Stretching my horizons, learning, smiling to the unknown, listening to the stories.
Some other stuff too such as: outdoor, nature, hiking, cooking, horse-back riding, photography, sailing, running.

Music, Movies & Books

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

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Gazing at stars in Ethiopia; 46 km trek thru the rainforest and mountains of Uganda; Mayan ruins in the middle of nowhere.
Also: first signs of spring; flames in a fireplace; flavor of a home-made bread; smile of O...
There are wonders everywhere.
