About Me

PLEASE click the "My Home" tab and read the "terms and conditions" of staying at my place - a narrowboat on the Oxford Canal. Hosting on a boat, we have many DO'S AND DON'TS. Make it clear that you're still interested in staying on my BOAT (despite the limited access to gas, electricity, water, and sanitation.)

I tend to feel reluctant accepting a Couch Request which doesn't address me correcly (take 2 seconds find out I'm not "Aleg"), an indicator of a possible lack of attention to detail and interest in the strangers who might share their home with you - something hosts appreciate when they want their guests to pay good attention to house rules. That's especially important on our boat.

Interests

-Minimalism: I feel good owning less.

-Freeganism: hitchhiking, free-cycling, dumpster-diving and maybe table-diving?

-Anti-voluntourism: Speaking from my own experience volunteering in a Nepalese "orphanage", if you're fancying non-permanent volunteering as your next mission, please check the links below and think twice:
>..her good intentions were unwittingly feeding an industry that dupes poor parents into sending their children to bogus orphanages in order to extract money from well-meaning foreigners.

-Street dancing (house) and capoeira: I used to dance 7 days a week for a few years. I'm out of practice now but still very fond of watching the art of dance and learning new moves.

-I've studied macrobiotics, and am a locavour/organivour. I'm always curious about herbal/Chinese medicine and slow food.

Teach, Learn, Share

-We can share a weekend on our narrowboat

-I can take you to dumbsterdiving/skipping if any opportunities arise. I wouldn't mind if you are not interested in this kind of activity and hope you don't mind me doing it or FEEDING you with recovered food... don't be scared! You can always say NO.

-I'd love to learn&practice conversational Slovak.
