About me

Hospitality exchange is what I enjoy most about traveling. I love connecting with open-minded people and having deep discussions about anything and everything.

Some things that I've been interested in lately:
- Effective altruism
- Nonviolent communication
- Intentional communities (ecovillages and the like)
- Open-source software and user experience design in FOSS communities
- Animal rights (on and off as an activist)

P.S. I'm also on Trustroots: https://www.trustroots.org/profile/mirekm

My interests


Reading a bunch of non-fiction now.
Would recommend:
- "When i say no, I feel guilty" for learning about assertiveness and communication (don't judge it by its title -- it's really good)
- "Our Mathematical Universe" -- mind-boggling book by a physicist that completely changed my view on the universe
- "The Moral Landscape" -- argues for approaching ethics scientifically, summarizes my feeling well
- "Write to Sell" for people getting into copywriting
- "Designing for the Digital Age" for hardcore UX designers (it's a huge book)
- "Sprint" for people interested in design or quick idea validation


Depends on my mood. Cage the Elephant, Punch Brothers, Fiona Apple, Brad Sucks, Goldfish, ... also, I sometimes play Debussy on the piano


Really enjoy Charlie Kaufman's scripts—Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Synecdoche, New York, Anomalisa—and Justin Benson's and Aaron Moorhead's work.

Non-fiction: Project Nim, Blackfish, Vegucated (I watched a lot of animal-related documentaries when I helped plan a film festival)

TV shows: Steven Universe (might seem like a kid's show, but it's actually quite deep and complex; I highly recommend it, though it takes a while to get into the meat of it); out of the other shows that I watch/watched, nothing really stands out; I will mention Better Off Ted, though, as it's little-known

Travel experiences

Past trips:

Lived 5 and a half years (aged 11-16) in Albuquerque, New Mexico with my family.

Had a fantastic experience at Ecolonie -- a Dutch ecovillage in France -- though just for two weeks.

Generally couldn't care less about the touristy part of traveling; what I enjoy is getting to know the people -- their way of life, their life philosophies and attitudes.

Planned trips:

never ask
Max number of guests:
I can offer my guests:

I have two extra mattresses here -- one is the not-too-comfortable springy kind and one is just a rectangular block of foam (like one of these: http://preciseethiopia.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/foam-mattress.jpg). I can also offer a sleeping mat. I could probably also offer a pillow and a blanket, but that's not always a given, so ask in advance.

I might be able to give a quick tour of Prague, but I don't always have the time.

Other information for guests:

I can't lend keys, so we'll need to work out the schedule in advance.

Safety is a priority for me, so I reserve the right to not host you at any time (even once you've arrived) without specifying a reason. (I almost hosted a member who turned out to be abusive and would like to avoid hosting one in the future.)

Public transport:

Yes, within walking distance of a subway stop

House Rules:
No smoking, No drugs.
