About Me


experince as many as It's possible


I'm not afraid of crazy and bold ideas. I hate being late. I'm outgoing, sociable person. I have a love for the outdoors and am always up for an adventure into the wilderness. Generally I'm always on the lookout for every type of adventures ;)
My all life is around the sport and travelling. So it's the reason why I've sheded Biomedical Engineering at the University of Technology and started studying the Tourism&Leisure at the Academy of Physical Education in Wrocl€šaw. This was a turning moment of my life. From this time I know what I really want to do !!


faster, higher, further...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Couchsurfing is for my part of a good travel experience so I use it a lot. Just for now only in Europe.


How I spend my free time? I think that like everyone does... studying, meeting with friends, partying, cooking, rock climbing, running, fooling around...
I'm totally keen on travelling and sport. That's why I am studying Tourism&Leisure on Academy of Physical Education in Wroclaw. My favourites are extreme ones like climbing, alpinism, freeskiing and windsurfing. At least once a month I'm going to trekking in Polish mountains. But most I like is rock climbing and climbing on glaciers or via ferrata. It gives me a lot of fun. I love getting to know new people, new places, new food and new coultures. I think that travelling can be a way of life!
