I love traveling alone but this time I am looking for a TRAVEL BUDDY. I am open for ideas, let's stay in Europe or fly to Argentina. For a week or for a year.
Meu próximo destino:Longwy, France - desde Out 2022 até Out 2022 Ver tudo
Travel is my life. I have solid work opportunities back in my home country: my family runs a small company, I have friends in film/photography business, in tourism and in media, but I prefer to live on the road in the search of peace of mind and inspiration. Languages, cultures, food, art, cinema, mountains - the list of things I love is long.
I enjoy both urban jungle environment and the bosom of nature, including harsh conditions. My travels encompassed long stays on deserts and dense forests, long treks and mountain climbing, solitary journeys and group trips.
I taught English in China and Korea, helped on olive harvest in Croatia and Italy, picked grapes in France, volunteered on cemetery reparations in Georgia, worked on archeo digging, nature conservation fieldwork, meadow mowing, etc. Some time ago (times long gone), I was an amateur filmmaker and made several short films which were screened on festivals around the world.
I run a foodie/travel/photography-themed blog.
I am an absolute cinephile and I watch everything. Arthouse and mainstream, auteur and genre, classic and contemporary, fiction and docu; animation, experimental, b-moviez, indies, Bollywood, Hollywood, simply everything.

Mais detalhes sobre meu interesse em idiomas
Apart from English, I'm fluent in Polish, quite-good-but-not-perfect in Russian, Mandarin Chinese, Italian and French and some very basic Spanish. Because of the similarities between Slavic languages, I can easily (proven!) communicate in Czech, Ukrainian, etc. Linguistics is my passion, I tried learning many other languages not listed above and I read lot about comparative linguistics and such stuff. As for my Chinese, I know some basics, then I lack some basics... - but on top of that I have a profound knowledge of the language(s), contexts, culture. I often surprise Chinese people with rare terms, geographical names, trivia. So I'd say I'm both beginner AND advanced, (with "intermediate" being the least fitting term, even if it comes exactly in the middle of "beginner" and "advanced"). I spent 6 months in Italy this year so Italian is now among my favorite languages and even if I never used it for larger extent - the French language is with me since 20 years and I am currently polishing it. I am soon going to visit some Spanish-speaking countries and I am looking forward to mastering this tongue.

Quais são suas habilidades?
Apart from managing our family-run bookstore and running its website, I worked with camera, realized numerous individual film/travel projects, worked with children, lead workshops (mainly filmmaking, both in Polish and English), worked as an English teacher for some time, and did physical work as well (nature conservation fieldwork, meadow mowing, toilful cemetery reparations, etc.). My past experiences also include olive harvest and pruning, as well as grape harvest for example. I love working outdoors!
I write and photograph and have some basic drawing skills (very basic, don't imagine too much please). I am no informatician, but I am quite good at computers and Internet. This include fast typing, quite proficient graphics and video software, boss at Windows, basal MacOS, elementary hardware knowledge. Audiovisual equipment is not a mystery to me. Though I'm not an educated chef, people keep saying that my cooking is good.
I also worked for some film festivals as a selectioner and/or programmer.
My priority as a Workawayer are outdoor jobs, but I am open to any kind of challenge.
