As a child i travelled with my family across Poland and the most I enjoyed stories related with each place we have visited. I don't know exactly when I came up with this idea but I always (or for a very long time) felt I would like to visit Asia.
And here I am - on my student exchange in Taipei. It took me 3 days to fall in love in Taiwan - sincere people, beautiful places (no wonder they used to call Taiwan 'Formosa' - beautiful island) and a blend of chinese and aboriginal arts and culture. I am trying to make the best use of my time here and visit many places in and outside Taiwan. On my dream 'to visit list' are: (not mentioning many places in Taiwan) Japan, Phillipines, Kambodia, China, Thailand.
What I love about couch surfing is that you have a chance to meet amazing people willing to share their feelings and opinions. It can make sleeping on a 'couch' or even on a piece of floor the most unforgettable experience in your life.
We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I am willing to 'steal' and share all good ideas I know among people I meet:)
I started using CS when I came to Asia, my travel buddy convinced me to do so:) Now I cannot imagine better (or different) way to travel.
This question helped me to realize - I do not have any lasting hobbies.
Depending on what I am currently doing in life - I love discovering new areas, places, 'hobbies'. Only taste for books and music remains relatively unchanged. And there is one thing that can always make my day - good companion to talk.
Music, Movies, and Books
Music - I love classical but I do not pay too much attention to titles and authors - I just set the playlist and enjoy.
Books - indisputable no 1 - Jostein Gaarder, later on Agatha Christie, Erich Fromm and Richard Wiseman.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I was swimming in a crystal clear water of Kayangan Lake and I had this feeling - I hope it will never end.
Meanwhile I saw how a Japanese man (who came to the lake with his wife and about 7 year old son) who was teaching a son of our Filipino guide how to jump into the water and turn in the air. I don't really know why but I like bringing this memory to my mind.
Teach, Learn, Share
It's not about what you do, it's all about why you do this.
