About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Just do it, dont wait!!! (Self-talk, sorry:))

ABOUT ME

if i m not sure if to go or not to go i d choose go; if not sure it'll work or not i'm thinking - must work. but - no unnecessary risk. thinker, looking for the best options, and sometimes doing things for crazy reasons, cant help that :)

PHILOSOPHY

no investment = no profit (I m not talking economy :) no presumption = no later dissappointment. be grateful and appreciate: you live a luxurious life if you are in a position to sit at your PC and surf sites like this! try to keep your mind clear of all rubbish that past might have left there

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

1. Joined CS ;) !!!
2. Just packed up and went to live and work in Arab country for a year on my own!!! now sounds scary even to myself... fantastic year, recommend to everybody just GO people
3. Spent all summer in Turkish Riviera as a tour rep for Slovak tourists. Exhausting job, amazing experience, new friendships for life!
4. Started teaching deaf kids English as a second lang., without being able to sign myself at that time :)))))

Teach, Learn, Share

leave 3 hours ahead for the airport, not only 2, some airports are HUGE (e.g. Dubai airp.) and they make you go around whole airport to get to your gate. one friend of mine missed her flight coz she didnt remember that exactly that day was a change fom winter time to summer time (missed that 1 hour)!!

I dream of trying ski-alpinism and want (and plan) to do it soon.

I can teach you to sing some funny easy folk song in Slovak. If you want, and most people do, also sign something (Slovak Sign Language). Well, I can teach you SING or SIGN :)

What I Can Share with Hosts

Crazy unbelievable stories that only LIFE can write.
Ski trip or mountain walk.
Coffee, wine, radler, dinner. Depends.
