About Me


I’m Karolina from Poland. I am ethnologist and cultural anthropologist and I prepare a PhD about tourism development in New Caledonia.

I love travelling, sharing experiences with other people and organizing cultural events.

Since 2008 I move every year, so actually I am constantly travelling :) I was living in France (in Burgundy and in Poitou), in Kraków (Poland), in Prague (Czech Republic) where I did my Erasmus year, in Paris where I did my Masters and where I continue my PhD and in New Caledonia where I lead my ethnographic research.

I am an AFSer. In 2008 and 2009 I went for an intercultural exchange to France. I was a student at a French high-school. During the week I have been living in a boarding school in Jaunay Clan near Poitiers. And for the weekends I was going to my host family in La Rochelle. I love France and french culture that's why I go there very often.

In Poland I am living in Cieszyn, a small town in the south.I live in a house with my parents.

I like the mountains, I live only 30 minutes from the Beskidy mountains where I am skiing in winter and hike regularly.I don't like to be bored.I like active rest: I'm hiking, biking, swimming, climbing and skiing in winter. I like visiting foreign countries.

I would really enjoy to continue learning German and Spanish because I had started learning theses two languages before leaving to France.

I am an energetic and talkative person and I know very well how to adapt to new situations.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I would like to show you my country - Poland, as well as the culture of my region and its customs. I also hope I could learn things about your country and see and hear everything that is not written in the guides.


CS is the best way to meet new people and discover the world!
