Extrovert, enthusiastic, energetic, expressive, emphatic, emotional, easy-going, eccentric, eloquent. Some call me extremist. Maybe because I live my own life.
Born in Warsaw. Lived there up to 2008, when I sold my flat and quit my job and went on traveling to the East where I spent 3,5 yrs. After living back in Poland for 2,5 years I have moved in with my Flemish partner Dirk and I live in the loveliest city in Belgium, Gent.
As time prevails I travel in a slow pace, my dates are flexible. I rather stop for longer in one place I like than go "everywhere". I love being in a movement and discover new places, foods, hikes and new people. I'm always super excited after booking a new flight or planning road trip. Before I met Dirk, I preferred to travel alone, but now I know it was only because I haven't met my perfect travel companion yet.
I'M NOT VERIFIED
I have a permanent address in Warsaw at my Mom's. And I have an address in Gent at Dirk's. I don't see any point in getting verified. You will have to trust me anyway, or... you won't come here/receive me, no hard feelings.
As much as possible I live a healthy life style. Getting enough sleep. Never smoking tobacco. Booze, meat, refined sugars and processed foods free diet. The goal is to go vegan, though it's still hard to give up eggs and cheese here and there. I do yoga, flamenco dancing, biking, swimming, mountain trekking, kayaking. I love partying and live music. But the big night clubs are not my thing.

MY RESPONSE RATE
is actually 100%. I never leave people without response, cause not answering the request or friendly message I consider disrespectful. (With an exception of messages like: "hi" or "I like your eyes" etc.). BUT I don't check my profile every day, so last minute request might not be answered straight away. Ask me a week before.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
For people, for culture, for music, for food, for dance, for experiencing variety of the world.
To meet open-minded, tolerant, easy-going, true travelers in here. I have met here people who became my close friends. Just a few bad experiences out of hundreds of great ones.
I'm here not for the commercials forced onto my profile by corporate CS.
I'm here not for dating, free-loading or just crashing for free.
I'm here not to serve as a free hotel room.
I'm here not for getting drunk in pubs or nightclubs.
Healing art, flamenco dancing, movie, traveling, photography, yoga, music.

Music, Movies, and Books
Love good movie, love good music, love good books.
And when I say 'good' I mean it.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Giving birth to my son. I doubt anything can ever beat it.
Teach, Learn, Share
TEACH. I can teach Polish (I'm educated as a Polish teacher). Thai massage, I'm a masseuse and massage teacher.
LEARN. I'd love to learn about the country you come from. I'd like to improve my Dutch.
SHARE. I can share my knowledge about Warsaw, where I've been born and lived for all my life, and Poland, as I traveled the length and breadth of my country.
I can also give you some tips on traveling in Southeast Asia, especially Bali, where I lived for 2 yrs.
Sometimes I can share food, but don't count on it too much :)
