About Me

CURRENT MISSION

http://wwwdotcom.com/

ABOUT ME

CAN NOT HOST APRIL, JUNE TO SEPTEMBER 2015
a few random words about me seen in the quick search> Cheerful, thoughtful, crazy, dumpster diving, sailing, hiking, getting volunteerily totally lost in forests, mountains, literature, very good coffee, anything about music, passion, personal responsibility vegatarian and possible vagan, philosphy, nudist if possible, opportunist, sure I can enjoy almost any kind of person

I just came from 19 months long travells and I am sort of tired Surf with me only if you re interested in me or my topics , otherwise we wouldnt enjoy it. Emergency requests wellcome, but usually really just for friday - sunday

- - -

Who am I?
I am just me, the unique one. Come and check !! I am guy who likes beer, challenges, art, people. I also hate crowds, junk, my failures, beer. Depends on situation.

On CS - I am focuse on hosting. But I really love trevelling, actually be on the road. It doesnt necessarily mean travel. You can do that with your life. You can find that in your city. You can keep that point of view on anything. Anyway being somewhere else is pretty good. VŠUDE DOBŘE, DOMA NE
I dont prefer people (better: I dont understand them) who travell without take their whole mind with them.
I also think, that people are actually good.

Present for next surfer |
As a SURFER here in Prague READ THIS !!
You are expected to bring a present for next couchsurfer - and u ll be given a present by the previous one. Can be photo for example, or anything u create - picture (or not - really anything, better small - there have already been thinkgs like earrings, paints, photos...but it is really up to u - but when thinking, creating or buying sometihing think what u d like to get - when it is bigger, next surfers will also probably give bigger present, of course u can solve it during your stay here)
That is not for me but for u so please try to think about it and follow it

PHILOSOPHY

Omnia tempus suum habet et spatium suum sub sole tenet

In the long run we all are dead.

While thinking we make, let us note the fact to find our bliss

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

Why? I love the simplicity of the idea. You like other humans? Have some space? Just be with them... Definitely need to be part of it

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I finished my working day and went to visit few friends preparing party with concert on a yard for next day. Than I came to walls of medieval comlex and just run to celebrate the solstice. We run and run since midnight till sunrise. It was more than 30 kilometers. Then I slept a little and went to the place mentioned before. Party lasted for me around 40 hours, then I slept a little, went to work and continued. Finally rested with few people on a dark yard just drinking beer. amazing

--------------
I saw old lady sitting on the bench while she dropped banana slice(in error)..I ve picked it up and threw out into the bin. She smiled and told me - thanks.

I was sitting near the river watching birds.

I had drunk 15 beers and woke up and drunk 2 liters of water. So tasteful !

LIFE consits of small pieces which finally does make sence. I can see people smiling, can dreaming. I can drink good beer. I am healthy young person. I am enjoying every small piece of the being.
