About Me


I've grown up in a mix of two very difference cultures and to love meeting local people from all over the world and learning about theirs too!

I've travelled to many countries across Europe including Iceland in winter and an inter railing trip after graduating from University - I would love to re-visit / see many more places! I have visited East Asia, staying with family in Hong Kong and travelling from Kyoto to Tokyo in Japan!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love to travel for the following reasons:
- To meet new people
- Learning about different cultures
- Learning new languages
- For new experiences
- To try new foods

There's no better way to truly experience a new place than to meet with locals and learn about the real culture rather than just being a tourist
I love to share stories and experiences with new people.


We're a young couple (tomaszjastrz) living in the centre of Woking, UK - a 30 minute train ride into the centre of London!
We are renting a two bedroom flat unfortunately the second bedroom is unfurnished but we do have a very comfortable fold out couch.
We work during weekdays - if we can accommodate you will be able to spend time with you after work or on weekends.

We're happy to host (if we're not away travelling) or meet-up with new people so send me a message :)
