About Me

CURRENT MISSION

grab life by the throat and live it to pieces

ABOUT ME

I grew up in Poland, but I moved to the UK when I was 10, then spent a year living in the French Alps, finished my degree and moved to Martinique to practice my French and enjoy the sun. I then moved back to London to finish my masters in French Caribbean literature and then got a job as a Credit Analyst. I have moved to Manchester at the start of the year and I am enjoying discovering the city.

PHILOSOPHY

The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I think it's a great way to travel and meet people from all over the world. I couch surfed in France and in Switzerland and try to go to climbing sessions with other couch surfers in Grenoble

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

My first couch experience was when I moved to France, and it was great! I got to see France from a completely unexpected perspective. It was a great introduction to the country and has inspired me to participate. I am unable to host at the moment, but I am always free to show someone around the city or grab a coffee/ beer.

Interests

reading, travelling, cinema, learning new insturuments (and frequently giving them up due to the lack of patience), learning new languages, irony, coffee, aronofsky, really sour polish food, meeting new people, eating cold ice cream during winter, slackline, climbing, skiing, swimming

Music, Movies, and Books

I like reading a lot, everywhere and most things really, but mainly post-modern and new francophone literature.
I am discovering deleuze.

I like moving images. I like Aronofsky's films, particularly the fountain and pi, almodovar, Godard (with a pinch of salt), Yann Samuell is cool too, I recently watched a Greek film called "Dogtooth" if you have seen it please let me know what you think!

music: pop,dance, ska, jazz, gypsy punk, rock reggae, bit of electro always, and french rap is useful to learn unusual vocabulary
