finish the University degree pretty much :D
I am originally from Czech Republic, but I currently live and study in Edmonton. I like research, but I am also keen on traveling and exploring new places. I like almost all outdoor activities. I love nature and it is one of the main reasons I travel. However, I also like to learn about different cultures, learn new languages and meet people from all around the World. CS is very good tool for all this.
Don´t learn. Life will teach you!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I like to host people and share cultures. Also, I prefer staying with locals while I am traveling, because it's the best way to explore world
Since I am member of CS, I met a lot of nice people and got plenty of opportunities to travel and learn about different cultures. I still keep in touch with some couchsurfers I met.
traveling, sports (cycling, swimming, jogging), outdoor activities (hiking, rock climbing, cross country skiing, downhill skiing, ice skating, snowshoeing), hitch hiking, nature (biology, ecology, theory of evolution), lazing, photographing (not profesional), Go (Weichi), teas, writing poetry, reading books, cooking, dancing,
- rock climbing
Music, Movies, and Books
I like movies about dancing (ballet) or from real life, comedies and czech / european movies
I listen many different style of music depending on my mood: classical music (of course czech composers), but also pop music; electro swing is my impeller during work :D When I am sad or lonely I like slow tones, e.g. Lay Low, Agnes Obel or country music
Regarding literature, I mostly read research papers :D and I like poetry
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
One month backpacking, hiking & hitch hiking in Norway
Teach, Learn, Share
As I said, I will certainly never learn everything, but I want to learn, teach and share with others experience, ideas, interests, cultures, recipes for cooking.
What I Can Share with Hosts
I like to share and compare differences in culture and cooking. If there is time, I like to spend time with my hosts (do some cooking, hiking and so on). I can teach basics of cross country/downhill skiing, ice skating or other skills I mentioned above.
