About Me

33, single, teacher/language assistant at a language school and an occasional translator. In my free time I love listening to music, reading, playing scrabble, and painting. I play scrabble at tournaments (I qualified for the Nationals five times and hit the top ten there in 2014 and 2015; I play the English version too and represented CZ at the World Scrabble Championship twice.) I've translated the American bestseller about scrabble - "Word Freak" by Stefan Fatsis - into Czech; the manuscript is currently being proofread.
I'd love to accept guests but the flat I live in is not mine so I can't for now...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I travel a lot, usually for scrabble tournaments and concerts... and often look for ppl to put me up for a night. Love meeting new people.

Music, Movies, and Books

modern country (Martina McBride, Ronna Reeves, Terri Clark...), bluegrass, rock... I have my favorites in metal, jazz, and classical music too; I don't watch TV much but my favorite movies include The Platoon and my favorite series House MD.
Fave books - there are quite a lot. They include e. g. The Death Ship by Traven, and most books by Karel Čapek, Arnošt Lustig, and Haruki Murakami

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

see above - represented CZ at the World Scrabble Championship in Warsaw, PL, in 2011, and became a bit of a "media star" because of that. I've also translated the nearly untranslatable scrabble bestseller "Word Freak" by Stefan Fatsis into Czech.

What I Can Share with Hosts
