About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Finding my path in Athens

ABOUT ME

I think I am quite an open person - open for different points of view and open for even bizzare ways of spending free time.

Im a person who tries to looks on the bright side.

I establish concats with new people quite easily (although im a naturally shy person, but it quickly dissapears when i get to know you BIT better ). THEY say its hard to be bored with me - could be ;-)

I like to party and just wander around, but Im interested in various things, which most of all is hitory, international affairs and MUSIC. I enjoy talking and exchanging views on all the above.

I dont fancy Foucault

PHILOSOPHY

Without going to some kitsch, catchy phrase - I do believe we all kind of write the book of our lifes, which is enough complitacted itself -therefore I believe we shouldnt jugde the others easily and always try to give respect and learn something from them.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Both surfed and hosted, from brugge to siberia

Interests

People-their expieriences and understanding differences between us, music, history, political ideas absent from the mass media, traditions and habits that are new for me.

Being told about and "live" new things, which can broaden my horizonts <--best stuff, that I first truly felt being on erasmus student exchange in 2009/2010 meeting tons of amazing new people and having crazy time with them. Since then I have started to open my mind and still trying to do that.

Music, Movies & Books

music - Mazzy Star (check it, its magic), DJ Shadow, Kult, Miles Davies, St Germain, Manu Chao, Led Zep, Cat Power, The Pharcyde, Aphex Twin, Stan Getz, Madlib, old Kruder and Dofrmeister, Nightmares on Wax, Isaac Hayes, Maanam, Ben Klock, Reagge, 70's funk and 60's soul; Włodi, Warszawski Deszcz. Kerekes Band, Erykah Badu, Move D, Super Girl and Romantic Boys, I would run out of space If I try name all of them, depends on the mood really. For me music is a feeling, connecting us to our soul. I dig music exchange sessions a lot!
