About Me

Dan is a confused Slovakoczech who wants this world to become a better place; he's also a non-conformist rebel, restless promoter of the European Union, passionate bicycle freak, diabetic, vegan, climate crisis alarmist, gay, jewish, alternative arts lover, not fan of strawberries… it seems like wherever is a minority available, he's rushing there. But please, do not label him.

Thank you for visiting my profile, I'll make your day unforgettable.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

“One sweet dream
Pick up the bags and get i̶n̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶l̶i̶m̶o̶u̶s̶i̶n̶e̶ on the bicycle
Soon we'll be away from here
Step on the g̶a̶s̶ pedals and wipe that tear away”

(©The Beatles, edited)

Interests

My interest turned to love, love to the passion and passion became an obsession. Bicycle: the greatest invention of human kind. If everyone cycled, there wouldn't be any wars.

BOOKS / goodreads@kolenozehlic

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I defeated my ego, several times. And I keep on fighting.

Teach, Learn, Share

Being a nihilistic hedonist: I can teach you how to enjoy the life by practising my own philosophy, which is "The worst thing that could happen is the death*, and that is not that terrible."

*Dan K UnLtd acknowledges the fact, that the actuality of death is subjective to every natural person and experiencing its process may vary from subject to subject. Therefore, Dan K UnLtd commits to admitting presence of fates worse than that of a death.

and I started my collection of cute words, here's a small sample:
English: contradictory, tarnation, hesternal
Polish: smacznego, spoko, Łódź, oczywiście, chłopak, kawka, pociag
Hungarian: egészségedre, söröző, öltöny, kávézó
Slovak: neboráčka, zmrzlina, nádenník, náprotivok, talár
