My name is Aleksandra and I come from Poland. I have been living in Iceland for 4 years and I am sincerely in love with this country, especially for its openness and tolerance. Traveling is a lifestyle for me. Every time I am forced to stay in one place longer, I feel that part of me is standing offended in the corner. I am a tramp type - prefer to explore seemingly ordinary places but typical for a given culture of a given country than crowded attractions from TripAdvisor. I love working with people and for people. I do not tolerate rudeness and aggression. All problems and ambiguities can be solved in a polite way. Love learning new, practical skills. My motto says: Personal development comes when you step out of your comfort zone - I have experienced this many times and this feeling is my greatest motivation :)
