About Me

I think the best word that describes me is "smile". I'm smiling all the time. Maybe it's some kind of disease? I'm not sure but I'm happy that generlly my laugh seems to be contagious. I just want to pass to you my good energy.
I love to talk. But as much as listening. I love long conversation about sense of the life or... just buying shoes. Really, about anything. It's amazing that thanks to few words you can see someone's point of view.
I like to introduce unconventional, crazy ideas to life. Getting to know new things, new places, new people.

And, I can't lie about it, I sing all the time. And the problem is I often don't realize that ;)


Do whatever you want - the things that make you happy, but without hurting anyone. Be open for new experiences and for new thoughts. Try to live every day fully. Don't be scared.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

For me the main advantage of travelling is the exchange of thoughts with different people from different cultures. Thank to couchsurfers it is possible to try to look at the world from the other perspective, see not touristic, and for me, false image of the city we, are visitng and get to the places that normally we wouldn't think of. Couchsurfing changed my life. I met so many extraordinary people who thought me how to enjoy the moments and live life fully.


I love music! It's everywhere if you listening closely. I sing a lot, I play piano and I'm pretending that I know how to play on my ukulele...

I like photography and making photos. I'm not sure I'm good in it, I have a terrible camera... but it makes me happy. I started making my own postcards. I like to collect them but I couldn't find here almost any that I would want to send to someone. So I started to creating cards on my own.

I'm writing down quotes from books. It put a smile on my face when I'm reading few sentences that seems to describe my feelings, my dreams. Or it can be just funny. Or wise.

I like to learn new languages, getting to know new cultures and new customs.

Trains. I almost forgot about traveling by trains. I love to visit new countries. But it's so much better when you arrive there by train. It's creating some magic atmosphere. You can watch views through the window. You can spy people a little bit, people who don't notice what's passing near them and who are acting naturally. I dream about a travel in Orient Express and Trans-Siberian Railway.

And above all I love to meet new people, experience new things, changing my perspective of seeing world.

Music, Movies, and Books

I listen to almost every gender from electro swing through the hip-hop, rock, bossanova, symphonic metal to the opera. I'm specially attached to jazz. I like not obvious fusions.

I love reading. It's a great way to transfer you to other reality, other century, other country. It's the simplest way of traveling! I'm a big fan of Haruki Murakami, Gilbert Chesterton, Jose Somoza, Neil Gaiman, Paul Theroux and many many others.

What kind of films do I like? I don't know how describe my taste. Maybe I will write some titles: "In Bruges", "Le fabuleux destin d'Amelie Poulain", "Inglourious Basterds", "Garden State", "Monty Python and The Holly Grail"...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Trying to turn every little thing in my life in something amazing.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can play my piano compositions. Although usually I'm too scared of public so my hands would be too sweety to play anything ;)
I can cook you something. I love it, although I'm not sure about the quality of the final effect...
I make and collect postcards. If you want, I can bring you something unique :)
I can share my stories with you.
If you are interested in languages, I can teach you the bases in Polish, French or Portuguese.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can turn into your therapeutist - listen to your problems and keep your secrets safe.
I can make you smile.
I can share my music taste.
I can make you a postcard.
