About Me

Open to what life brings. Prefers city centre over suburbs. Cats over dogs. Driving over flying. Summer over winter. David Lynch over David Hasselhoff. Wine over beer. Ironing over washing-up. Beatles over Rolling Stones. Doing over planning.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love the idea and want to be part of it!


Going new places, getting to know new people, cats, teaching = getting to know students, music festivals (Off Festival, Colours of Ostrava), football (Arsenal), yoga, driving, Scrabble (hate losing!) ;)), shopping for second-hand clothes and other things, cooking for friends, vegeterian, FB addict. My recent thing is nail art o_O
