About Me

CURRENT MISSION

My profile indicates that I "reply within a week" but I reply immediately, if the couch request appears among my incoming e-mails!!

Ski in all ski resorts in the world with more than about seven lifts
Share my joy of life with people of good will

ABOUT ME

I DO NOT MIND copied unpersonalized couch requests because - unlike those who strictly refuse them and probably did not venture any long trip - know very well that pilgrims need to avoid spending their time thoroughly studying the hosts' profiles if they travel for a prolonged period and did not have time to find hosts before the trip!

Solitaire, friendly, tolerant

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Inspiring - it changed my view of world and people living out there.
I met dozens of peculiar people many of whom I will remember till the end of my life.
The very best what I can still expect from couchrurfing is meeting another unforgettable people both as a host and as a guest.
I have a single bad experience out of about 160 cases!

Interests

Ski all over the world all the year round, hunt for mushrooms in forests and parks, drink wine, fall asleep under a tree, sending good vibes

Teach, Learn, Share

I think I cannot teach you anything what you would like to learn except for some tricky Czech words like the longest one: nejneobhospodařovávatelnějšími (i.e. the least cultivable).
