About Me

CURRENT MISSION; not to stop, never, ever. Slowing down is ok, but stopping not.

Like no other! Trust me ;-)

Active but calm. Up for everything, but not that spontaneous to leave everything just when opportunity arise.
Curious and hungry of great experiences, stories, deeds, memories.
Stubborn as a mule. Sometimes I find it helpful.
Challenge addicted. Telling me "You will not do it" is a best way to make me do sth.

I like to plan, analyse, read, learn - in spite of it I have the black belt in mistakes.
I love to sing, dance and so - but well, ppl would actually pay me for not doing it. I am terrible at it - singing out of tune, dancing not in rhythm of music and so. However in my imagination it's all fine ;-)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I've started form surfing and met great people. Later on decided to host - first in my home town, a CS friend of mine from Den Haag and later people visiting Warsaw - city in which I currently live.
It's a pleasure for me to host new and friendly people from all over a world who also consider CS as something more than just a free couch. If you would like to be my next guest - please ready My Home section.
