About Me


I like to sit by the fire, running, orange juice, spaghetti, red wine, walking with bare feet on the grass, mountains, oceans, candle light and comfortable chairs.

I dislike television, noise, crowds, shopping malls, tourists, commercials, trash on the streets, mosquitoes, flies and souvenir shops.

I'm surely not the most sociable person in the world, but not the least one either. I'm rather reserved and thoughtful and sometimes absentminded and so it makes me wander, how did I get to travel so much? I guess I prefer to listen than to talk but I don't mind talking, preferably about interesting subjects, but I sometimes talk bullshiet to 😊 I'm (almost) always ready for trying new things.


Life shouldn't be measured by the number of breaths you take, rather by the number of moments that take your breath away.

If a voice inside is telling you that you can not paint, then above all paint, and that voice will be silenced.

As for an ex philosophy student this question is kind of an irritating one.

I love to discover and learn new things but I do feel a great urge to do something more than just that...

I doubt that there is anything undoubtfull in this world (including the undoubtfullness itself) and therefore, one way to deal with it, is irony.
I would prefer not to believe in anything but I realize that is rather not easy.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

It's a great, easy way of getting to know people from the places that one is about to visit and since people are actually what makes us experience a place differently and more richly, the CS is a way to make travel richer. It's a bit like hitchhiking and a bit like starting a conversation with a stranger, only, since there is a profile, it's not a complete stranger and that's a way of getting the more reserved and preoccupied people to open.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Ooo man, I don't know where to start... I have been studying philosophy in Warsaw's UKSW University and I have happily graduated. Ive been working in one of Alaska's seafood factory where I have processed over 20 000 cans of salmon (I even have a diploma). I've been living in a Buddhist monastery in London and didn't loose my mind. I have hitchhike probably about 60 000 kilometers in something like 40 countries, some people are finding that quite amazing.
