About Me

CARPE FUCKING DIEM!
--------------------------
I am friendly.
I am impulsive.
I am odd.
... and I train all of those each morning! :)

I fell in love with traveling and exploring mainly because of my dad, with whom we visited 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 Vancouver, Canada. It was difficult to get around at first, but luckily, I tried Couchsurfing and local people always helped me a lot. I became independent, it was the best year in my life and it changed me more than anything else... In September '11 I went back to Prague and back to my old life, but I continue traveling to this day! In September '15 I went for a student exchange program and lived for 6 months in Tokyo, Japan. In September '19 I went for an internship and lived for 10 months in Wageningen, The Netherlands.

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

I simply can't say no to anything new and interesting.
I love talking deep. Or weird. Not small.
And I really enjoy living in an unordinary way.

PHILOSOPHY
"do whatever you want, unless it harms anybody else"

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Couchsurfing literally saved my sorry 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 felt that I need to give back to the community, so I started hosting in Vancouver, even when I was 8300km away from my home and both me and my surfers were enjoying it!

All this made me understand that even the smallest act of kindness can make a huge difference, so I try to keep that up :) And now it's even easier, being back home...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Seeing System of a Down live show?
Exploring Pripyat and Chernobyl power plant?
Climbing to the top of Nara Dreamland's abandoned rollercoasters?
Walking around the edge of the Great Wall of China on a completely frozen ocean?
How could I compare it?
I can't.

Teach, Learn, Share

Well, how could I know, before I meet you?

Teach me anything you know. I love learning. If you're passionate about your interests, that is a good start for any interesting discussion and I just can't get enough of those! :)

I go out quite often, especially to enjoy music and beer, so you could join :)

What I Can Share with Hosts

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 nonsense ever :)
