About Me

A public speaker, solo traveller, a bit of blogger and a ballroom dancer.

I dropped out from my university to explore the world on my own. Thanks to that, I'm addicted to being on the road since at least 2015. It was then when I had decided to leave my beloved home country Poland. I hitchhiked throughout most of the Europe, seen some of the South-East Asia; and also used to live for a bit in Spain, Thailand and Vietnam.

Currently I'm staying in Poland with my girlfriend Anna ( https://couchsurfing.com/people/ania-krupa-1 ), where we decided to settle down for a moment. Not for long probably, though, as we're definitely traveller spirits now. Beginning with summer of 2018, we plan to hitchhike through whole North and South America. Until that time: we invite you to crash at our couch in Poznań, Poland! ;)

Professionally I'm working remotely as a freelance web developer ( www.jtom.me ). I also maintain a life/travel/psychology related blog on www.medium.com/@jtomaszewski . Feel free to visit it ;]

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To get to know other places, people, and their cultures. To keep the life exciting. To learn that every person is a bit wild and has its own cool habits. To learn, that everyone of us is equal and actually very similar to each other.

So far, every experience I had on CS was a blast. Let's keep it rolling!

Interests

- self-development & education

- ballroom / latino dance

- psychology; history; politics; wars; economics

- public speaking

- learning languages: Spanish and Russian for now

- drums. i'm still a beginner though.

- meditation & spirituality - I started to 'pursue' those subjects quite well since my trip to SE Asia. Sadly I rarely have occasion to continue it, but it's always fun to talk a bit about it

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: a lot of them. Just a couple from memory which I watched a couple of times: "Donnie Darko", "The Butterfly Effect", "Limitless", "Into the Wild", "Requiem for a Dream", "Scarface", "Scent of a Woman" and TV-series like "Weeds", "South Park" and "Californication", which totally raised me up.

Music? Anything besides pop & rap, really. Alternative rock - been listening to it for years. Electronic music? also. I'm also a bit of music festivals veteran: so far I've been 7 times at Woodstock Festival, Jarocin [3x], Open'er [2x], Audioriver [1x], and soon, more to come.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

In May 2015 I participated in "Auto Stop Race", which was a hitchhicking race from Poland to Greece. More than 1500 people started in one place at the same time just to hitchhike all the way to a beach in Greece.

Since then, I do hitchhiking in every country I'm in. It's as awesome as couchsurfing (did someone call it "carsurfing" already? ;] ). You've got to try it if you hadn't already!
