About Me

UPDATE: I have recently moved to Paris. I need some time to settle down. Once settled, I will start to host again.
I can rarely host again, but don't be mad if I don't answer you (just means I am busy). Also please do not expect me to go out every night, as there is a lot on my plate right now. But if I accept your request, I will try to make some time to spend together :)

CURRENT MISSION

Try to find more time for what really matters!

ABOUT ME

I´m a very curious czech girl who enjoys travelling and meeting new people. I´m a sports-minded person willing to try anything new. Many people describe me as little crazy, but that's a good thing, right? :)

PHILOSOPHY

"The world is too big to be born and die in the same place." Pablo Neruda
"Ser feliz sem motivo é a mais autêntica forma de felicidade ." Carlos Drummond de Andrade
I'll go everywhere if it's a step forward in my life! David Livingstone

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I was meeting with travellers in Prague, whenever I got some time, to show them the city through my eyes. I also started to participate in the Prague CS group and contribute at least a little to the organizations of Prague big events. Since I moved to Paris, I am trying to integrate in the new CS community. Unfortunately lately work life took over most of my free time.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Back in 2008 me and my friend Veronika, we made a wonderful trip in Algarve (south of Portugal) where we were hosted by several people, all with really great experince. I also met some really nice CS people in south of Spain, whether I stayed at their places or not :-) Now I enjoy meeting travellers in Prague from time to time and I got addicted to CS on my travels, cause you can't get to know a place in a better way than hanging out with local people :)

Music, Movies, and Books

love music - ska, reggae, rock, indie, a bit of electro, pop, samba, bossa nova, jazz, some hip-hop....I'm not a picking listener.
books - anything that makes me sad when I have to interrupt the reading; getting to know better Portuguese and Brazilian writters - I love books of Clarice Lispector and Rubem Fonseca
movies - everyone that makes me remember it - nearly all Tim Burton films, Tarantino films, Matrix, Love Actually, animate cartoons and many many more

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Does it really has to be just one? I'have spent nearly two years of my life in Israel!I learned to do snowboard and I ran a marathon. I fulfilled my dream and came to Brazil and now I organize a Brazilian movie festival in Prague. I hope I made some people around me happy. But I hope that the most amazing thing in my life is still waiting for me whatever it will be.

Teach, Learn, Share

I am happy to share my travel and other life experiences. I can share my love for Latin America and especially Brazil. I will happily share a morning run with anyone willing to run with me. I need to learn how to stress myself less in life! But, I'm practically open to learn anything new!

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can teach you how to cook Czech food, how to prepare Brazilian caipirinhas or how to stop rain by traditional saman dance :) I can tell you of how many beer animals there are in the world and in our beer zoo.
