About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Looking for an idea what to study and learning for life during my voluntary service

ABOUT ME

What would my friends say about me? I think they would say, that I'm a quite nice mate... relatively sociable and talkative, not so punctual, but if cannot make an appointment, I will always tell people, what is going on and when they have to expect me to come...so I'm pretty responsible, I think. However, I'm not the typical Disco-Guy, but open for every other interesting suggestion to spend time... Think, that's it. You have to find out the rest and visit me ;-)

Ahh... yeah, and there on the photo you can of course not see only me, but also my charming girlfriend (she uploaded the photo and I'm still quite unsure whether how I am shown on it is in my favor ;-)

PHILOSOPHY

I think life is (or should be) about getting as much of different expierence as possible, not hurting around you people, being pleased with what you are doing and enduring your whole time on earth without major hurts... or so ;-)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

If someone wants to spend a night in Ostrava, he or she is welcome at my decent housing... just contact me before, so we can arrange anything.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Honestly. I haven't yet gained any experience, but I am eager to change that ;-)

Interests

I realy love thinking about all kinds of things, specially in creative ways. I like taking photos, playing with lights and water. Painting and drawing, looking at foreign faces, talking to interesting people, who can show me something new and enlarge my horizont. Discovering unknown places and sites. I'm also an enthusiastic basketball-player (though no professional)... and so on... (oh, and I like politics ;-)... not politicians, but to discuss different current and urging issues)

... I also like singing and cooking sometimes, but it depends on the circumstances ;-)

Music, Movies & Books

MUSIC... Rise Against, Common (Sense), KanYe West, Foo Fighters, 30 Seconds To Mars, K'Naan, Amewu, Die Ärzte, Sie Toten Hosen, Flogging Molly, Dead Kennedys, The Beatles...

BOOKS... just read, what seems interesting to me... have no special idea, what to accent here

MOVIES... Just show me your most intriguing movie, because I'm still searching for further impressive ones

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I really liked for example the landscape in Sweden, when my family and I did a trip by van in its south. Two years ago in Taize/France I remember also great experience, getting to know so many people from so many parts of the world and just being together, talking about God and things of life... Oh, and not to forget: The volunteering I do now here in Ostrava, definitely belogs to the most amazing things, I'v ever done... and I'm still doing it right now ;-) Great man!
