originally wrote this page as part of my first lingering efforts to get
out of Prague.
It was a blast the first eight years, but slowly the village mentality
started creeping in and gossip seemed to increasingly abound like moldy
mushrooms after a rainy day.
Not only the expats seemed to change, but the locals as well, who underwent
an interesting transition from communism to capitalism as I wrote about
in my reflections
of the Czech Republic.
I made this page for the purpose of exchanging flats with others around
the world, but it was difficult to get the timing right, and although
many times the offers through Holyswap were interesting, sometimes I really
doubted their authenticity and was wondering who I would be giving the
keys to my flat to.
Fortunately, eventually I succeeded in my great escape and moved myself
and my business into a caravan
truck. I like to keep this page to show what a glorious life I supposedly
had before moving into a metal sardine can. Many do not understand, but
I prefer to be parked on a beach, where I step out onto the sand with
bare feet every morning when I brush my teeth, spitting into the ocean
and rinsing from a water bottle. I got high speed internet
while traveling right on the beach, so I couldn’t be happier. I’ve
had a lifetime of partying and enjoy getting productive now. After all, we all will meet our Creator one day, whether we choose
to believe it or not, and a more productive life will bring greater resonance.
But I do still party
occasionally and still enjoy it.
This page’s previous text prior to this most recent upgrade:
Hello, thank you for visiting my page.
Although Prague is arguably the most beautiful city in the world, I
have lived here ten years straight with almost no vacation (I am a workaholic).
I would like to start visiting other countries, preferably to a warm climate,
as close to a beach as possible, for three weeks to two months during
the months of Jan/Feb.
The location where I live
is one of the most sought after places in the city and about a ten minute
walk from the centre. It is surrounded by many parks and much of the streets
are lined with trees.
I have prepaid, permanent internet. Sorry that the place was a bit messy
when I took these pictures.
Here are some links about this city and country.
If you would be interested in trading flats with me, feel free to write
me an email.
