About Me

ABOUT ME-EEEE: extravert, enthusiastic, energetic, expressive, empathic, emotional, easy-going, eccentric, eloquent.
Some call me extremist, but I'm not sure I'd subscribe to that point of view. From my perspective I just live MY OWN life, but I do understand how living your own life could be viewed extreme ;)

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 Belgium.

TRAVELS. I travel in a slow pace, usually on my own (now mostly with Dirk), my dates are flexible. I rather stop for longer in one place I like than go "everywhere". No need to show me around if you don't have time or feel like it, I like my own company, though I like to get to know others and be among people too. I'm curious about the countries I travel.

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 it's possible I live a healthy life style. Getting enough sleep. Never smoking tobacco. Booze, gluten, dairy, refined sugars and processed foods free diet. The goal is to go vegan, though it's still hard to give up eggs, eh. 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.
What's important: health, peace, social justice, organic, green, environmental sustainability, Taoism, Buddhism, feminism, paganism, shamanism, free thinking, leftist (very left leftist).
Russian language: I'm neither learning it or fluent in it, although I love the language. I used to be fluent, but not using it for 20 yrs I forgot a lot. So if you're Russian and want to talk with me in Russian I will understand you, but I will have a problem to answer you.

MY RESPONSE RATE is actually 100%. I never leave people without response, cause not answering the request or friendly message I consider disrespectful. Although 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 reading all the commercials forced onto my profile by corporate CS.
I'm here not for dating, free-loading or sending copy-paste requests with intention to crash for free.
I'm here not to serve as a free hotel room.
I'm here not for getting drunk in pubs or wasting myself at nightclubs.

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 :)
