About Me


Beginning half-nomadic life with horses. Travelling through Czech woods or somewhere else. Becoming a Bohemian. ;-)


I'm introverted. I like to read and think.
I observe people everywhere to give thought to their place in the world. Art of all kinds exerts a powerful pull on me as well as nature with its different appearances. You can discuss with me, you can philosophize with me, but I hate alcohol-and-smoke-parties, bad food, shopping malls and brainlessness.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


It's a beginning for destroying the money-was-all-thought.
It's suspenseful, because you don't know who will be at the door.
I'm curious.
