Join Couchsurfing to see Tomáš’s full profile. It’s free!
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.
see above - listening to music, playing scrabble (at tournaments, too), reading, translating, art
Music, Movies, and Books
modern country (Martina McBride, Ronna Reeves, Terri Clark...), vocal pop (Bonnie Tyler, Lara Fabian), 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.
Teach, Learn, Share
English, scrabble, literature...
What I Can Share with Hosts
I'm sociable, so people are usually rarely bored with me; I can offer a game of scrabble, bring along a bottle of wine or beer...
