About Me


Living in Prague


I joined in 2011 when doing my Asia trip and didn't use CS much since then. Now I have my own place in Prague so I want to help new generation of surfers enjoy budget travelling.

My experiences also taught me, that it doesn't really matter where you go, but with who. Even the most boring place can change into amazing journey with couple of good friends. My big passion is writing, I used to be a chief editor of University newspapers. Now I participate at least by writing reports from Asia.


Don't just survive, LIVE!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


My first was amazing. We met our CS friend in Singapore late in the night He gave us couple of good advices where to go in the city and don't spend much money, said sorry that he can't go with us for drink cos he work in the morning, gave us keys from his flat like it is the most common thing and wish us a good night. This was the time when I realized what is the real difference between CS and any other social network.
