FAQ - Our town of Kolin is 62 km far from Prague centre, 45 minutes - 1 stop - by train

2024 update - DOWNLOAD
I strongly advise you:
- get online ISIC (international student card), cuts Czech transport to 50%
- the Prague transport app
- Czech Railways app MujVlak

December 2023 - back home, copy+paste from another CS account, I like:
"When hosting mostly trying to give a chance to newbies without references..."

November 2023 - few new CS hosts, but just even only Yes - No response rate cca 5%, Couchsurfers - pull yourselves together.

October 2023 update - after a month at home heading to TK again
my family might host you - feel free to ask - viz. profiles below

September 2023 update

Switching off Türkiye'de. Visiting friends, sorting out thoughts. Spamming CS hosts with requests....
1) there so many dead, or empty profiles
2) I have to accept that yaşlı dede is not a perfect match for night life
3) nevertheless YA TUTARSA - always a chance to meet new friends for life shadowing

May 2023 update

The game is over. If you want to stay over night within my profile pls follow following:

1) The males will go with me to a local pub, either beer, or tea, or whatever, I really do not care.
2) The females will stay with our females, whatever.
3) If coming with kids and without any health certificate they (the kids) are supposed to eat what served is.
4) Do not employ any human speakers. If I ask a question to a guy, I wanna his answer from him, NOT from his lady. And vice versa. Same for underaged.
5) If you have troubles with any above, send a request to my three adult kids instead of me. They are more diplomatic.

They accept you, and you will stay in our house anyway. But I will not be obliged to join the club :-)
Bit old and conservative, I know.
The password for your eventual request: YaTutarsa.
Implement it in your request anywhere.

Last version 2022:
The CS service and warm welcome is still available - just send your requests to one of family member who is closer to your age group. Obviously if you are closer to our age (37+) we are still here for adult chat about parenting and world philosophy.
Beer is legal for both groups.


Happiness is a choice. We´ve almost chosen to be happy.

Until you open a fridge in someone´s home, you can never tell what is the life there about. The real life.
We cannot all be positive. It will not work.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


We strongly believe that meeting other people is the best way how to learn about the world.
We have travelled a lot in Europe and Türkiye, now slowing down.


Hosting - lots of CS, Warmshowerists, Hospitalityclubbers, Erasmus people, teachers, and/or students, once Taizé and just whoever is interested including Czech travellers.

Surfing - not much anymore, our offsprings opening their own CS profiles,
we, not old, just more experienced, usually following our friends, not the destinations.
BUT it is always nice to meet new locals, with friends just to meet, in that way to widen the fellowship.


asking questions ( favourite is "Impossible? Why?")
as stated in one of my ref.: bitterböse Fragen

Music, Movies, and Books

Whatever. If there is a message behind. But OK. Just a random choice:

music - depends on the mood, and purpose
film - Monty Python - Life of Brian https://youtu.be/jHPOzQzk9Qo
book - any by Oscar Wilde

If you wish to make us really happy,
previously: bring DVD film, or CD, or just MP3 songs of your neighbourhood - anything real, and the best secondhanded - think environmentally. Today - a real postcard, and just a link are just perfect.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

We love getting in schools to see the little differences, and to enjoy the feeling that it is everywhere the same. Almost. :-)Just now a little teaching experience at schools in : Poland, Turkey, Greece, Italy, France, Spain, Germany, United Kingdom, Norway - usually for week, or two , and usually several times.

Teach, Learn, Share

Our old kindergarden Erasmus project was called Learning Languages by Doing.
How to beat the bureaucracy around, and how to survive the desillusion afterwards
