Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Letting people enjoy Prague and me get to know some interesting people! Till now it works:)

I am a motorcycle freak, I like riding it and following motorsports. I do mountainbiking, downhilling, snowboarding, running and wallclimbing as well. I like reading books, especially in English, meeting up with friends, like music (go to festivals and good-old clubbing) and good food.
