About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Living adventurous life, the life is so amazing in this way :)

ABOUT ME

You can set some image by yourself.

PHILOSOPHY

"In society you will not find health, but in nature. Unless our feet at least stood in the midst of nature, all our faces would be pale and livid. Society is always diseased, and the best is the most so. There is no scent in it so wholesome as that of the pines, nor any fragrance so penetrating and restorative as the life-everlasting in high pastures. The doctrines of despair, of spiritual or political tyranny or servitude, were never taught by such as shared the serenity of nature."
Henry David Thoreau

My philosophy: To live in the harmony with and save the Nature, Enjoy the life, improve myself, know more, help to my relatives and friends, trying to be better, ...

My personal goal: Visit all the countries during my life.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I'm hosting people in Bratislava and I can also help you to find out the way for cognition and enjoying of Slovakia. I organize CS meetings and events as well.

I can take you for a hike to Malé Karpaty mountains near Bratislava, some options:

Záruby - 768 m = the highest hill of Malé Karpaty, we can go from Smolenice (difficulty: medium, elevation: 557 m, takes about 4 hours, 13 km) and also visit ruins of castle Ostrý Kameň (576 m). Other intersting places worth of visiting close to Smolenice are Smolenice castle from 14th century and Driny Cave.

Vysoká - 754 m = 2nd highest hill of Malé Karpaty, we can go from Kuchyňa (difficulty: medium, elevation: 534 m, takes about 6 hours, 22 km) or from Vývrat (possible in 2 or 3 hours) and if we have all day we can come back through Zochova chata and visit the castle Červený Kameň as well.

Vápenná - 752 m = 3rd highest hill of Malé Karpaty, we can go from Plavecké Podhradie (difficulty: medium, elevation: 542 m, takes about 6 hours, 17 km) and visit also the ruins of castle Plavecký hrad (400 m) from 13th century.

Pajštún - 486 m = ruins of castle, we can go from Marianka or Borinka (difficulty: easy, takes about 1 and half hour) or from Rača = place where I live (takes about 4 or 5 hours).

Or what about going to Gerlach (2654.4 m - the highest peak of Slovakia) in High Tatras ? :)
