About Me


To hitchhike around the world!
Being on my way for more than 13 years hitchhiking around the world
Travelling for more than 15


I am a dreamer and cruel realist at the same time,
I love different kind of arts,philosophy,science,getting to know new cultures and new people with different way of seeing things from the different angles.
I enjoy the people who make u think for a days with just one question... hmmm :))
I am uncurable romantic, but huge sceptic on the other hand as well :P
Sometimes I have the power to swim over the ocean and sometimes I am not even able to make a step out of my door(then I need sb to come and say :"Hey there is sun shining over there!" ;)
I am creative,imaginative,talkative,maybe sometimes I could be even funny;) but on the other hand I can be dull,sad and tired ... Sounds like schyzofreny,doesnt it ;P
So anyway,I dont really like to talk about myself,just come and find out ;)

Well,I have my own channel on youtube,where I started to put on some videos (thanks to some friends from Brasil who made me to do that ;) So if u are interested just have look at


Where u can find videos from many parts of the world and as well from atlantic crossing hitchhiking small boats - just browse it if u are interested.

You can find as well most updated information about my travel and where I am at the moment with photos videos on facebook page:


And I have finally created my blog about the travel


Recently I started to make as well the jewelry to support my travells,which you could find on pages:

Well,I hope u will like them ;) Nothing profesional,just how did I see the world.

And I have one blog which is more personal and which works like a scraps of many things.
U can find there translation of for example slovak and czech songs to Brazilian Portuguese or Spanish


Feel free to follow my travels!


This could explain many things:
Wonderful speech of Steve Jobs


Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Really have to talk about this? Like many others: Hosting,surfing,organizing events,participating in events,creating,changing,inventing,translating,trying to help,yeah,you can do whatever wonderful comes trough your mind.


Truly and sencerely I had very positive and as well very negative experiences during my CSing,but its like life,u never know who u will meet at the end ;) And even your best friend could stab to to the back. Thats simply life.I have met one of the most interesting people and most amazing that probably it would be much more difficult to meet them in real life if the CS wouldnt existed :)

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies : I enjoy very much movies,which makes u think,which gives u some kind of artistic experience and leave a strong feeling after.
My absolutely favourite one is Le fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain and the work from Mr. Jean-Pierre Jeunet is quite interesting for the way of story telling,colors,details,camera ...
Though I used to be kind of movie maniac time ago,when I still had time for it,there are lot of movies I enjoy and like and a lot of directors,who's work is big inspiration (in thinking further,from artistic point of view,dynamics,camera,cut...)
Well to mention some of them :)) I like the work of Senor Alejandro González Iñárritu,Ki-duk Kim,Fernando Meirelles, Darren Aronovsky,Danny Boyle,Julio Medem...
I love dreamy movies like El labyrinto del fauno or mysterious ones like Abre los ojos
I am very interested in movies which deal with some kind of political and social problems,situations,which are concipated by not that usual way and catch the watcher and make him to look for more: Waltz with Bashir,Persepolis ...
From the Comedies : Hot fuzz,Zombieland,Undergroud from Kusturica,Shallow Grave from Danny Boyle, The Good, the Bad, the Weird ...

So,let's say there are lot of them ... And there could be written more than few pages just about it...

Books: Work of Mr. Sartre,Antoine de Saint-Exupery(my favourite is of course a Little prince ;),Jack London,Mr Bulgakov,Mr Dostoyevsky and some others.I enjoy reading the books of Mr. Pratchett and as well his work with scientific collegues as I am quite into dark humor ;)
Well a lot of different books.Lately I am into 5 at the same time and triing to finish at least one ;)
I love different theories,phylosophies,discussions about possible and impossible(even though I think that there is nothing impossible in this world,just we dont know it yet how to make it)

Music : As I read somewhere which I am maybe somehow going to quote : Any kind of clicks,noises,voices which can after all make some listenable compilation :))
I like to listen to the sea and the wind in the trees,to running brook in the mountains,to the birds. But well if u mean comercial music ... Ehm,every country I have been left something from it in my ears.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Well there are lot of them ...

Standing in front of 5 meters hight waves in western Coast of Ireland,swimming with jellyfish,triing to learn kitesurfing,eating snails and that all in one day.

Manage to climb alone the Rysy(2499 m) Slovakia and get back almost during the night trough the polish side and hitch-hike back till the midnight to the place I was staying at.
Climbed to Torres del Paine with my messed up ankle,camped in national park to wake up next morning that everything was covered by snow,hitch a ride with funny finish people out of the park in miniature car where we were 6.

Crossed the Atlantic hitch-hiking the sailing boats in 2010 from period of mid october till begining of decembe 2010 r from Europe to South America.

Make my dive instructor license,my Yachtmaster sailing licence,chef,teacher,travelling artist

Hitchhike around the world on my own,finding oportunities,learning new people,new culture and about everything around :)

To hear every amazing story that everybody has some to tell and hopefully once I will have the power to write a book about it (in some way to be everything remebered for further generation ;)...

Teach, Learn, Share

I love to teach different kind of things along and learn as well. Learn as much as u can and try to teach as well as much as u can thats more or less the motto.
