About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Carpe fucking diem!

ABOUT ME

I am friendly.
I am impulsive.
I am odd.

And I train all of those each morning! xD

I live for others.
I love music.
I like all types of boarding.
I look quite pierced.

THE STORY: I fell in love with traveling and exploring mainly because of my dad, with whom we visited the most of Europe. So, maybe also because of this, one day, I decided to leave my home and fly to the other side of the ocean: New York, U.S. and after a few weeks: Vancouver, Canada. It was hard to get around at first, but luckily, I tried CouchSurfing and local people always helped me a lot, therefore, in time, I became independent and tried to improve myself as much as I could. I have no idea what are you thinking of such a trip, but I have to say for myself, that it was the best year ever and it changed my life more than anything else and CouchSurfing is now one of the best things I know... Since September '11 I'm back in Prague and back in my old life, but I'll be always grateful, that such freedom and experience could open my eyes :)

MY MISSION: I really want to experience as much as I can. The Earth is a huge place to live on and I know that no matter how hard I try, it is just impossible to 'do it all'. But, let's just say that at least a half would be nice! :D Therefore, I just love adventure. And maybe even more creating and making it to happen.

I simply can't say no to anything new and interesting.
I have problems with expressing my feelings.
I love talking strange.
And I really enjoy living in not ordinary way.

PHILOSOPHY

"do whatever you want! (unless it harms)"

I often say so.
And try to follow it.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Well, couchsurfing literally saved my ass, when I was new on the New continent! I had two wonderful surfing experiences, one in New York, the other in Vancouver and I'll never forget...

I started hosting in Vancouver, when I was 8300 kms away from my hometown (and my beloved bed) - but surprisingly: my surfers were enjoying it! This just makes me believe that now, they'll enjoy it even more, when I'm back home and have all my extra resources and knowledge at hand.

During that time I spent couchsurfing, I learned, that even the smallest thing can make a difference! So, the point is clear: to open door and arms to all the people who will need it! :)

Also, I've travelled a bit, lived in Prague and Eastern Bohemia (and Vancouver) for a decent while already, so I can possibly interest you in some 'Traveling Hints' as well. Just ask! ;)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

The best & amazing!
And because I'm a different person since I started, the definition itself says that it 'changed my life'.

And, I got my own baby owl, once!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

How can I compare the funniest times spent in a company of my best friends with riding across U.S.A.'s national parks, with living in Canada, and/or with my life-and-death experience in Cape Town?

I can't.

The best moment I recall was seeing System of a Down live show, though.

Teach, Learn, Share

Well, how can I know, before I meet you?
But if at least something from my interests matches yours, it can be a good start for any interesting discussions. And I just can't get enough of interesting discussions :)

I go out quite often, to enjoy live music. Please, feel free to drop the line if you feel the same way ;)

ALWAYS REMEMBER: One HP (Horse Power) is equal to the power of constantly working horse, which is, yoked in a driving wheel, lifting a cargo of 180 pounds (lb) and makes 144 circles per hour, 12 feet in diameter :)

NOTE ABOUT ME: I love to randomly make up stuff, multiple it several times, add something here, something there, and, as a result, create holes in space-time continuum by creating the biggest nonsenses ever :)
