About Me

I like the best when I can go with the flow. Be nice to people, help them, make them happy. I like human connection.

I read a lot.
I want to understand and experience life. I like to listen to people's stories. I like to observe.
And I like to talk about all of that.

I have an urge to be funny.

I aspire to judge less and accept more.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm interested in meeting people, hearing their stories and also it's way better to explore places with locals.

Interests

Wide weird range. I can read philosophy book and then book about football. Or just watch football, or play it.

I actually used to sell used books for living.

Coffee addict.

I like sports in general. But it's true that I like it the best when some type of ball is involved somehow.
Beach volleyball. Basketball. Table tennis. Badminton (is that a ball? Let's discuss). Football.

I like to play chess.

These days I like to visit European galleries and museums traveling via trains with Interrail.

Also I like to walk and talk.
And after a good walk, it's the best to have good beer and good food.
I like to cook the food as well.

Also I like stand-up comedy.

Music, Movies, and Books

My favorite author is Milan Kundera. But I like to read wide range of book genres. I'll read a classical novel, then sci-fi, then some history book and then philosophy book.

Some examples:
Herman Hesse: Siddhartha, Milan Kundera: Immortality, Stanislav Lem: Solaris, Liu Cixin: The Three-Body Problem, Ernest Hemingway: The Old man and the sea, For whom the bell tolls, Hannah Arendt: Eichmann in Jerusalem, George Orwell, Sartre, Remarque, Bradbury, Vonnegut, Montaigne, Wharton: Birdy

I read Siddhartha by Herman Hesse couple of months back and it still resonates with me. Because everything's fine and we just have to go, change and live through things. :)

My comfort movie is Good Will Hunting.

The last move that really got me was C'mon C'mon. Went twice to theater to see it.

The best comedy ever is Hot Shots. Change my mind.
Or it's Woody Allen's Love &Death.

I watched Gaspar Noe's Love for the second time and it got me way more and I think that's interesting, don't you?

Everything from Richard Linklater.

Also Breaking Bad, Black Books, Battlestar Galactica, Los Espookys...

I used to love listening to Muse a lot. These days our relationship is complicated a bit. Ok it's not that complicated. I don't like those latest albums much.

Currently enjoying the last album WE by Arcade fire.

I like to go to techno and classical music the same.

Some examples:
Grace Jones, Depeche mode, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Delvon Lamar Organ Trio, Partiboi69, Rodríguez

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I walked Camino de Santiago. The Francés way. I need some change and Camino provided it. Definitely feel better afterwards.

Teach, Learn, Share

Well I finished one big chapter in my life. The outcome: I tried being an entrepreneur for 5 years and I don't feel like one. But I can definitely share some stories of making mid-sized Czech company from scratch.
Then I quit, went on a Camino de Santiago and here I'm, trying to figure out what to do next.

Basically I like to talk about life. And books. And movies.
So we can learn from each other stories.

These days I'm interested in psychotherapy.

I can teach you how to pour beer in proper Czech way.

I make really good scrambled eggs.

I currently enjoy learning Spanish.

What I Can Share with Hosts

A company. I like to talk and explore various topics openly. I like to listen.

This is very strange question.

I make good scrambled eggs.
