About Me




I have just came back from volunteering program in Thailand where I used to be a teacher at the Bangkok University. It was amazing experience I can definitely recommend it to everyone. Currently I'm studying International Economic Relations and working in finance department for big corporation. I'm open minded,out-going person. I've got positive attitude about the world. I love adventures and that's what I'm always looking for.


"Patria mea totus hic mundus est" The whole world is my homeland

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Kraków: Unfortunately I can't host anyone cause I live with my parents quite far from a city center but if it's only possible I'm trying to hang out with couchsurfers and to show my beatiful city.

Coimbra: I live in a big house with another students so feel invited any time u want. We are Erasmus so partying and going to classes in the morning is not a problem for us :D


I' m a couchsurfers for 5 years already I was hosted few times already and each time was better. I also love showing my city to new people so if you are looking for a good guide that would be me! :D


I love cyclinggggg!
Each time I travel I try to rent a bike because I prefer bike perspective :D

Few months ago I started to practise Capoeira and I love it!
