About Me

I'm a second year uni of Leeds student currently enjoying my year abroad in Morocco, Fes. Laid-back, passionate about life, meshugge traveller, language learner, dancer, (hitch)hiker, soon-to-be ukuleleist. Just me.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I've always prefered being a discoverer instead of a tourist. In order to become one you have to get to know not only popular sights, but also the nation whose home you are visiting - and that in essence is why I'm on couchsurfing.

Interests

Just like most of couchsurfers here I am into travelling, discovering new places, meeting new people and so on, but my biggest passion is language learning - I could literally spend my life doing vocabulary and grammar tasks in every language possible. Apart from that I'm a snowboarder (I teach little kiddos snowboarding too) and a classical ballet dancer.

Music, Movies, and Books

I don't listen to genres, I listen to bands regardless of what type of music they are playing. Some of my top listened would be Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Tom Mesch, Alt-J, Sigur Rós, AJJ, Tricky, Tame Impala, but there are many others too.

Movies: crazy about Sorrentino's movies, Tarantino (not only Pulp Fiction), Christopher Nolan, Darren Aronovsky, very recently more into Asghar Farhadi

Books: Tolstoy, Dostoievsky, Orwell, Garcia, Cabre, Bulgakov. Lots of lots, but these are my faves.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Crazy snow groomer ride in polish mountains.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you some basis of polish language, I can share my stories and I crave for the same in return.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I usually learn a bit of local language when travelling so there are quite some chances I'm gonna talk to you in your language. I can also cook some polish food for you. I actually discovered my rather limited cooking talent while couchsurfing in Riga when I was asked to cook polish gulasz with kopytka; turned out it wasn't particularly the worst dish ever produced on planet earth!
