About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to learn the craziest language in the world - HUNGARIAN :)

ABOUT ME

I love travelling, studying languages and meeting new people so I think that this is the best pleace to realize all those three objectives.
I'm studying applied linguistics (English and French) and Hungarian language at the university. I'd love to visit new places in Europe (especially Scandinavia!) and maybe some day in Australia..

PHILOSOPHY

'she can read, she can read, she's bad'

I BELIEVE IN SHERLOCK

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Host. Surf. I just need to participate in CS meetings more often :)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Now I can say I have some experience both as a host and as a surfer. And I really enjoy it! Thanks to couchsurfing I've learned so much about the world, people and about myself..

I'd like to participate in CS meetings and walking tours more often, maybe this spring I'll finally manage :)

Interests

MUSIC - the love of my life :) i do listen a lot, try to go to the concerts (in Poland and abroad) as often as I can.. Since 2007 I've been attending at least one summer festival per year. Living in Kraków is great because there are two big festivals organized here:

SELECTOR FESTIVAL (for those who love follow the newest trends in electronic music, more info here: http://www.selectorfestival.pl/news_en.html

COKE LIVE MUSIC FESTIVAL - pop, rock, indie, a bit of hip hop and electronica... everyone will find there something interesting... http://livefestival.pl/en

Apart from music, I like travelling (as every couchsurfer, I suppose), socializing, sport...

I'm also interested in indoor decoration and I collect pieces of folk art. Some couchsurfers bring little presents for their hosts. It's not obligatory to bring me anything :P but if you're thinking about it, I'd be grateful for some folk-art item (especially Hungarian and Scandinavian!) :)
