About Me

PLEASE NOTE: should you send copy/paste request my response will be (most probably) negative.

CURRENT MISSION

Seeking one

ABOUT ME

A Polish lad who got happily stuck in Saigon and can't get enough of it. Living, working and keep on exploring the country as well as the region for some time now. Huge fan of travelling by motorbike and always willing to share dos and don'ts.

Other than that I like to think of myself to be a rather attentive and easy-going lad. Hardly ever reluctant to hold a conversation. Driven by a passion to life, people, travelling and a challenge to leave the familiar to discover the unfamiliar ;)

PHILOSOPHY

Viva la vida

Learning through experience &
exposing myself to as many fascinating events as possible
before realizing one is too old and tired to carry on with such an approach any longer. Fingers crossed it won't take place any time soon.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

1)
Host and surf.
Surf and host.

2)
If for some reason can't provide the shelter, I do my best to substitute it with some sighseeing instructions

3)
I spread the gospel :)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Up until recently, I did spent a considerable amount of my student time on travelling, and have been around a bit (for my standards). Due to it, I was mostly being hosted than I hosted myself. Nonetheless, I did save few lost souls in Ibiza and twice in Cracow.

Interests

I tend to pay attention to anything that seems new to me and allows to expand horizons. Though travelling, literature in general, photography, politics, music, cultural initiatives and cinematography (especially what's called "classic films") are my main fields of interest.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

None amazing. Quite a few interesting worth sharing in reality, when accompanied by a decent atmosphere, and perhaps a glass of red or a pint.

Teach, Learn, Share

In certain circumstances (i.e. when NOT miserable, hung over, hungry and thirsty), could strive to indicate why it is better to " always look on the bright side of life" than to sit and cry over the pathetic existence :P
