About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Now living life on the other side of "the pond" :P

ABOUT ME

I have just relocated back to Brno, Czech Republic, to work for a big blue-chip IT co. I'm a guy who doesn't sit still, and definitely not the typical tourist who likes to do the castle, monument and cathedral thing. I'm a lot happier sitting around a pub, cafe, beach bar, or fire-pit chillin' with "local" people, or hanging out in some natural environment. I was a barman long before I got into IT, so I am considered to be a really super conversationalist, and can bullshit with the best. I'm a music freak, mostly electronic phase now, love experiencing great local food and drinks culture. Almost everyone in my crew is under 30, so I'm constantly moving in the club, coffee-house, arts and theater venues. I love boarding, but a couple of accidents took me out of the scene, but still pay attention to new trends. I guess, in a nutshell, I just hate being around people who seem okay with wasting any precious moment of life. The day I die will be the day I have nothing new to learn or experience.

PHILOSOPHY

Tough question... No matter what life throws at you, good or evil, you get up, deal with it, and keep moving on. Never look back. There's just too much to see of this world, too much to experience, to sit still, and die motionless.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I am hosting as many people as possible. (over 200+ people in the last couple of years)
Looking forward to surfing again myself in the near future.

Interests

...hmmm, well, I love great food, and cook extensively. I listen to all genre's of tunes, and attend quite a few concerts, gallery shows, and festivals. Reading and creative tasks, are always of interest. Currently writing my first literary piece. I get along superbly with a fine bottle of red, a great brew, or unusual spirits. I am a user of fine herbs, both recreationally as well as medicinally. I'm naturally sarcastic, and somehow make people laugh without really knowing why. I am a truly aesthetic Piscean.
