About Me

I am a Czech guy, even though all my foreign friends who have been to Czechia keep saying I am not a typical Czech at all (I guess in a good way...). I study Master degree of Mediterranean Forestry in Padova, northern Italy and I am sooooo happy about it. I would say, I am friendly and warm person (that is why I am not a typical Czech :D). I love the idea of Couchsurfing since you can meet similar based people from all around the world which is a really cool thing. If you are coming to Padova, just tell me. If I am here, I will be happy to show you around! Unfortunately, my flatmates don't support me in hosting couchsurfers so I can't host you but as I said, I'll glad to show you the city (although I am not actually local).

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

As I said above, I love the idea of CS. I love traveling and exploring new things. So it's exciting to meet new people from different countries, have a chat with them and spend time with them. Also it is much easier to travel abroad when you can stay with someone with similar interests :)
