About Me


Live the present, enjoy the moment!


Party chillex party, beer and fun! Well, not just that :) I truly enjoy living! :) It's the biggest gift I've been ever given and I love it so much! It gives me a chance to experience something deep, beautiful or exciting every day. A chance to go through a little bit of new adventure and learn something about people around me and myself. A chance to meet someone special who might open my mind for a different point of view. I spend a lot of my free time outdoors as I love mountains and everything connected to them. I am used to put away the comfort of the home to have an authentic experience. I love fresh morning air, evenings near the seaside, chilling with my friends at a campfire or just having a chat and laugh with a beer in my hand :) I like to observe how nature changes throughout the year and feel the diversity that every season brings. It reminds me that a change in life is a very good thing that keeps us active and creative. Meeting people from other countries, different cultures and sharing experience is something I will always enjoy as for me, it is the best way to learn about the world and humanity.


Live the present, learn from the past, look forward to the future ;)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I can occasionally offer accommodation where I am currently staying, but most of the time I am quite busy and have not much spare time. I can also give you advice about what to do and where to go or I can simply take you somewhere :)


Besides having great amount of fun and laugh, I've met a whole bunch of people who I truly admired and who opened my mind in some ways. CS is a great way to meet like-minded people, travel and learn about the world.


Travelling is my passion, mountains are my second home :) Since I have spent most of my life in a small town near the mountains, I have always enjoyed mountaineering. I truly spend a lot of my free time being outdoors and there is a good reason behind it - Slovakia is just extraordinary:

I like hiking, snowboarding, skiing, cross-country skiing, running, cycling and camping and would love to get more into kayaking and surfing. When I travel I like to hitchhike as it is the best way to get to know the countries and people living there. I also enjoy playing basketball, volleyball, swimming or rafting from time to time. And I like photography, guitar and good beer :)

Music, Movies, and Books

I really listen to a lot of music. To mention at least some - I like Chiki-liki-tua, Puding Pani Elvisovej, RHCP, Mumford and the sons, Ben Howard, Pearl Jam, Pink Floyd, Coldplay, Soley, Sigur Ros, Radical Face, Arcade Fire, Kings of Leon, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Hans Zimmer, Dave Matthews Band, Beatles, Scorpions, Rodrigo y Gabriela, Johnny Cash, Bruce Springsteen..

For me, truely enjoyable movies are: Into the Wild, White Hell, Kurvahošigutntag, Gladiator, Life Cycles, The Last Samurai, The Last Trapper, Equilibrium, The Last Of The Mohycans, Braveheart, Top Gun, MI2, Gran Torino, Michel Vaillant, LOTR, Seven pounds, The Hurricane, BBC documentaries and loads of others...

From what I've read I really enjoyed Three friends, Shantaram, Into the wild, Alchemist, Žert, The Call of the Wild, Marching Powder, The Beach, For whom the bell tolls, Peter Camenzid and Death's called Engelchen.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Besides being born, 2400 km long bike trip with my friends from my hometown through the Balkans all the way to the Adriatic sea.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you how to enjoy food, beer and fresh air ;) And I'd love to learn surfing, building simple wooden houses, canyoning, windsurfing, paragliding, reading people's minds and eating upside down :)
