About Me


Self-sufficiency coupled with soul upliftment and consequent life happiness


Would be boring to meet me in person if I wrote everything about me here. So just shortly, recently I went through life changing traveling experience in New Zealand, came back and saving money to be able to travel more in the near future. Anywhere. Preferably to wwoof, cause that's where I see the future. Not only mine, yours as well, if you ever wondered :o) I see a great sense in acquiring any knowledge that has to do with self-sufficiency, permaculture and to foster this, I practise it on my little garden I have next to a house I live in in outskirts of Prague. Close to nature, easy to access the city center (25 minutes by bus and subway). I have traveled quite a lot last seven years, it began with Erasmus in 2006 in France, few months in US, in Sweden and New Zealand. I just like to keep discovering possibilities of this world and would like to be aware of all of them, which I know is impossible in this body. My mundane hobbies: consuming music, taking pics, traveling, languages, self-sufficiency, permaculture, ecology, diy of various kind - diy life if you want :o) I was raised to conform the society, but I can clearly hear the roaring beast inside of me coming to life with graduating frequency, the beast that is uncompromising to all wishes and expectations of it's surroundings, the beast that is looking for the true and meaningful direction, not necessarily a goal, rather a way. The beast that has been trying to break from the chains of the conventional society. Creative, perceptive.


Don't you ever get stuck in the sky when you're high. Meaning, the moment you think you know everything and you are master of everything you need to realize you know nothing and be humble and re-open yourself for further learning and development. Dissolve your ego once in a while and think for your real self. In fact, learning never ends, it's the way you face the perpetual flow in general.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


None officialy, but I have hosted many friends from around the world so I know how to take care of them.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Lived one and half year in a van in New Zealand, had a chance to meet some trully amazing people and to share the van with them for some time.

Teach, Learn, Share

We can share permaculture and self-sufficiency knowledge, I can even show you some practical examples right on my garden. I can share nice meals - I'm perpetually trying to improve cooking skills (vegetarian). I can share interesting, unconventional place where I live, eating outside on the garden, there is a little water pipe (sisha) we can test. We can share silence. Easy.
