  • Description

    Hi, we are a middle aged ( feel like) couple who decided to retire so we can travel, meet new and interesting people, and discover new places. Darek used to be a builder so he is familiar with most aspects of construction and he is very handy. I (Jola) am a pharmacist so I have good knowledge of natural medicine, herbs, and healthy lifestyle.We both love nature and animals.Our favorite pastimes are hiking, swimming, and reading.We are pretty fit. I also love cooking and trying new dishes.We are open-minded, curious people always looking for things to do and learn.For the last 29 years we have lived in Canada ( we raised 3 kids here) but we are originally from Poland. We traveled as much as we could but we hope to do it more long term now. We are trustworthy, honest people waiting to meet you. Recently I finished hotel and catering management course and a barrista one as well. When we are home , not traveling,I am running a small Airb&b in our house.
