About Me

I like to call myself a "serial touring chic" and pride myself on having over 15000 km in my thighs.

I have already done some long-distance solo touring (http://www.thatcyclingchick.com & www.fb.com/thatcyclingchick) and yet, people still ask me: "ALONE?! Aren't you afraid?!"...

Well... no, I am not afraid of the big bad wolf and if you're not either, let's talk about that round a cuppa or something! Ha ha!

Je parle aussi le français et le POLSKI. ;-)

My main occupation at present time is day-dreaming about my upcoming bycicle tour around the US on zero money: https://youtu.be/AW3IeTwTypg... :-)

Oh, and I'm head over heels over Christine Baranski. You've been warned.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Because I obviously like to surf, host and hang out with like-minded CSurfers.

When I surf, I always try to bring along some Polish food or cook something if no Polish store is in sight.

When I don't travel, I host, I show people around my city, take them out for a coffe or invite for a meal to mine's. So far nobody has died of food poisoning, so I would call my humble participation a success!

My preference, alwyas and 4ever, is to host cyclists (look me up on WarmShowers!).

Interests

Travelling obviously!!!
I'm a big fan of swing dances and swing music.

I also love cycling, snowboarding, cooking, going out, debating politics and the condition of women, languages, photography and anything sapphic.

Music, Movies, and Books

I never leave home without my MP3. The music genres I like are: all variations of jazz (swing, big band, music from the musicals from the 50's and 60's, bosa nova, nu jazz, electro jazz) through funk, disco, R&B and French standards to electronica & dance, house and chill out.

As for films, musicals rule! My fave films: Singin' in the rain, Mary Poppins and Shrek.

Books... Anything by Umberto Eco. Or Milan Kundera.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I cycled 1500km in 12,5 days in June 2009 from Paris to Wroclaw. And then BACK!!! It was a challenge but I met some incredible, fun, helpful people thanks to both CouchSurfing and HospitalityClub. This has been so far the best experience I have ever had (well, this and all the following bike trips I did!).

Amazing thing I've seen? Wroclaw!

Teach, Learn, Share

I'd love to teach you some Lindy Hop.
