About Me

I'm easygoing (I mean it, it's really hard to get me upset), open-minded, positive, I love to laugh (I get sarcastic sometimes, but in a funny way) :)
I love travelling and learning new languages. I graduated from Strategic Management at Warsaw School of Economics and Brazilian Culture at Warsaw University. I am lucky enough to be inspired by my university course, so I'm always ready to go to Brazil.

PHILOSOPHY

I always try to understand people and not to judge.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I believe that travelling is about meeting new people and learning about new cultures; it would be a shame to miss the opportunities that couchsurfing offers.
So far, I've met the most amazing people thanks to this website.

As soon as I get a free space in my flat I'm starting to host

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I heard about couchsurfing quite recently; when me and my two friends went on a crazy trip around Bulgaria, Romania and Hungary. It was an unforgettable experience and the people we met through couchsurfing were just incredible! I do believe that without their help and support our trip wouldn't have been such a success.

Interests

I love music! (playing, listening). I really enjoy classical music and rock from the 70s.
I hike a lot, especially in Poland. I'd love to climb The Seven Summits one day.
I'm very outdoorsy, so I like practicing sports especially swimming and horse riding.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've seen the starry sky on the night of the new moon in the Sahara desert- hard to describe

Teach, Learn, Share

I love cooking, so from other couchsurfers I'd like to learn about their local cuisine or maybe get to know some interesting recipes.

What I Can Share with Hosts

During my year abroad at university I lived for 8 months in Rio de Janeiro, I also studied Brazilian Culture, so I'd be more than happy to give you some advice on travelling in Brazil and share my stories from there.
