To quit my formal studies for a while and start getting know the world from a perspective of a simple human being! :-) ... I´d like to acquire some practical skills and learn to survive on my own!
Hmmmm, meet me first and then you´ll see! ;-) :-D
I guess I´m a humble guy, someone who loves and enjoys the life on this beautiful planet ...
... but also someone who tries not to ignore the serious problems of the current globalized world ... o.O
... nevertheless, always smiling! :-) Optimist!
Yeah, actually the best characteristics of myself could be expressed as - a DREAMER - ..., a dreamer with the feet firmly on the land, though! ;-)
Oh, you mean my personal philosophy???!!! :O ...
I haven´t completed it yet! ;-) Still under construction! :-D
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Well, as I have been living in Prague during my studies in the last few years (just the time I´ve been member of the CS network) which is not my hometown, so it was quite difficult to host someone in not really proper apartments shared with other students. I rather used to meet people outside, inviting them on a beer/coffee/tea
:-) and guiding them to the places which still remain undiscovered by the awful tourist industry.
And while travelling? I just try to be a nice, polite and respectful guest! :-D Learning from the others and sharing a bit of my short life experience. :-)
I just hope to be a good host too, when I settle one day ... to get the world´s hospitality in return. ;-)
Sincerily it doesn´t serve me so much in the areas I visit the most - I mean the indigenous villages and remote little towns in Latin America. But it helped me several times in the big cities where it´s always more difficult to gain friends and get confidence of the "urban individuals".
And I must say I have met only nice and kind people so far. :-)
PEOPLE and their CULTURES ... rather from the bioregional perspectives than from the perspectives of a modernly constructed identity ...
LANGUAGES - Well, I´m highly fascinated by the natural human language in its diversity ... and very worried about the recent phenomena of the progressive global language shift! ... That´s why I dedicate myself to the indigenous languages which are considered as the most endangered ... I feel we as humanity are loosing an unpronounceable treasure with them ...
TRAVELLING - it has been a significant part of my studies, but I always try not to be tied too much! Sharing with the brothers and sisters of the human family worths much more than publications and academic reflexions ... And meeting new people and getting know new places of this fascinating world is always a great lesson as such!
I also like facing the elements :-) ... whenever I´m supposed to deal with my personal limits ... all the time wondering what´s over the horizon! :-)
MUSIC - playing with the vibrations of the world :-) ... I can do something on the guitar, andean flutes and various percussions ... But of course, there is always hope to get better in it. :-D
HISTORY - not only as a study of the past, however I consider to be important to know it in order to understand better our present ... BUT I guess, even more important is to be concerned about the every day´s history making :-) ... It just depends on everyone whether takes his active part or just becomes a passive object of the other´s activity. ;-) So, I´m interested in history from this point of view. :-)
Anyway, my greatest life´s interest definitelly consists in discovering new things, learning new skills and sharing them with others ...
Recently, I´d like to improve in fishing and hunting :-D ... And my great dream is to learn to drive a yacht!
