About Me

Playing guitar around Asia and Oceania.
Creating a website for traveling families.


Although I did the profile on my name we always travel as a whole family: me (Lukas), Klara (my wife) and our kids Timon (10), Rebeka (8), Florentina (6), Jeremiáš (3) and Roderik (born March 2017) are with us too.

I guess the life has to be sometimes hard to appreciate all other moments. Just think about how much better could the world have been if everybody tries his best.


Don't mind the result, mind the intention. (note that my wife isn´t always happy with this motto ;) )

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Host, guest and house/pet/pool-keeper


Did housesitting and pet sitting in Costa Rica (2,5 months), Thailand and in Finnland.
Enjoyed hospitality of families in Austria and Switzerland.
CouchSurfed eastern coast of Australia, got warm welcome by many.
Met cool people out in Netherlands.
CouchSurfed western part of Japan, met a lot of very kind people (both local and newcomers).

Hosted a cool biker from Bulgaria, two French guys and an Austrian family.

We don't require any special comfort for sleeping. We are used to "couches" on floor as well as other sleeping options. We were hosted by amazing retired people, gay couples, single parent families, students - we support our kids´ sense for diversity acceptance.


Photography and design, nature (especially mountains), outdoor sports (kayaking, climbing, ski-mountaineering, hiking...), music but also technology (less and less however).
Nature inspired lifestyle.
