About Me

UPDATE: I still cannot believe how the idiots could ruin COUCHSURFING in such a way, it's one of the saddest things I have experienced in my life.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

ABOUT ME

Again the hardest task at first:-) Perhaps you should better consult the references... Well, I'm doing my best to be smiling, helpful, reliable...

PHILOSOPHY

If you truly want to achieve something and you work really hard, you'll manage!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Just very good or excellent! :-) I'm really glad that I was told about it a couple of years ago. It's an amazing community with many open-minded, friendly and interesting people enthusiastic about traveling, language-learning and getting to know other people.

Interests

Languages (trying to keep the number correlated with the two final digits of the year:-), physics (more deeply:-) and other, not merely natural sciences (on a more popular level), literature (historical fiction, classic, popular science), Chinese calligraphy, sports, dancing (social dancing, salsa), traveling, music (guitar), recently mountain trail running and polyphasic sleeping!

Music, Movies & Books

Books:
Surely, You're Joking, Mr. Feynman!
P. Coelho: The Alchemist
M. Waltari: The Egyptian

Movies:
W. Wenders: Der Himmel über Berlin
H. Weingartner: Die fetten Jahre sind vorbei
F. Fellini: Dolce vita
Э. КЛИМОВ: Иди и смотри
Л. Шепитько: Восхождение
V. De Sica: Ladri di biciclette
J. Cvitkovic: Kruh in mleko
Карен Шахназаров: Город Зеро
Beijing Bicycle (十七岁的单车)
The Road Home (我的父亲母亲)

from comedies I really enjoyed Polish films Wesełe and Dzień świra:-)

One Amazing Thing I've Done

One year of Erasmus studies in Berlin

Hitchhiking 4500km through Russia, 5 days and 4 nights non-stop

Three weeks of 15,5 to 17,5 hours of working every day while holidaying in Ireland for one month (survived:-)

Spending the night close to the famous ancient Appian Way in Rome.

Teach, Learn, Share

I would like to improve myself in your native language; I can provide you with explanations on Czech grammar & co. with pleasure.

I'd be happy for any good book/movie/web-page recommendations...

And I would be really glad to learn how to cook your meals:-)
