About Me

CURRENT MISSION

see and learn as much as possible before I die

ABOUT ME

My greatest life passion is traveling. Whenever I have free time I go somewhere to discover new places. Already first step of travelling which is setting the plan gives me a lot of pleasure. I like to plan everything on my own. I believe that traveling broadens our minds and happiness is only real when shared. That is why I enjoy meeting local people during my trips to check the hospitality of the local society and try to understand their life realities deeper.

I would say that I'm cosmopolitan as I'm tolerant person and could life anywhere around the world just have real friends but on the other hand I respect the cultural diffrences and don't a agree with globalization process

PHILOSOPHY

He who becomes the slave of habit,
who follows the same routes every day,
who never changes pace,
who does not risk and change the color of his clothes,
who does not speak and does not experience,
dies slowly.

He or she who shuns passion,
who prefers black on white,
dotting ones "it’s" rather than a bundle of emotions, the kind that make your eyes glimmer,
that turn a yawn into a smile,
that make the heart pound in the face of mistakes and feelings,
dies slowly.

He or she who does not turn things topsy-turvy,
who is unhappy at work,
who does not risk certainty for uncertainty,
to thus follow a dream,
those who do not forego sound advice at least once in their lives,
die slowly.

He who does not travel, who does not read,
who does not listen to music,
who does not find grace in himself,
she who does not find grace in herself,
dies slowly.

He who slowly destroys his own self-esteem,
who does not allow himself to be helped,
who spends days on end complaining about his own bad luck, about the rain that never stops,
dies slowly.

He or she who abandon a project before starting it, who fail to ask questions on subjects he doesn't know, he or she who don't reply when they are asked something they do know,
die slowly.

Let's try and avoid death in small doses,
reminding oneself that being alive requires an effort far greater than the simple fact of breathing.

Only a burning patience will lead
to the attainment of a splendid happiness.
Pablo Neruda

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I am promoting CS culture whenever I travel. There is a best way to explore real culture and meet open-minded people

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

First couchsurfing exprience was in the Jacobs' dormitory in Bremen and made me addicted to CS. Afterwards I have tried first alone travel though Switzerland and it was one of the best travel experience I ever had. So far I did not host anyone, but I believe it will change soon.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

So far my greatest life adventure was one month trip through the Philippines. Adventure has started from spontaneous decision which was buying the cheap flight tickets. After that I have spent almost all my free time to plan the trip as detailed as possible. But of course executing the plan in 100% is not possible. During my trip I have faced additional challenges such as surviving typhoon and I had to adjusted my plans having unexpected visit in Taiwan. I had an opportunity to visit my old friends who I met for the first time in Germany. I can say every single day was adventurous and that all could only happen because of one brave enough decision to stop for a while in my life and experience something different.
