Queenstown

I am well traveled. I have been by hitchhiking around the whole Europe and by plane in the USA. I do not like travelling much and I have never been a travel freak with a camera around the neck taking pictures of everything. What I have always been looking for were adventures (as that is a foundation-stone of my personality) as well as self-discovery. The most important travel of all has been my stay in New Zealand.

Originally, I came to New Zealand to escape from mandane of my life in Czech Republic. At the time, I had had a problematic relationship and I was finishing a project in my country. I planned to go just for 3 months to prepare for CAE exam... I really had no idea that it is gonna be one year instead. I remember one beautiful day in Queenstown (roughly about the second month of my stay) when I was on a trip. I unexpectedly received a message from my then girlfriend: "Between us is a definite over" - it was fair enough for my withdrawal at the time when our relationship needed an extra efford to get in shape again. I took a week holiday from the school which I spent hitchhiking across New Zealand to get some time for thinking. The reason for coming back to Czech Republic disappeared.

Auckland

After I finished my course in Queenstown, I didn't feel ready for CAE yet. At the school, I had heard almost mysterious stories about a teacher-genius in Auckland who teaches CAE classes with absolutely incredible success. I didn't hesitate and moved to Auckland, found the teacher and begged for the attandance. As in these situations is usual, luck stayed on my side and I got it as well as the certificate a few months later. And a few months later a job as well.

The first day in schools' student accomodation, I met a weird German-Columbian guy - my new flatmate. "What is your hobby?" was my question. "Drinking beer" was the answer folowed by his exit to the bar. In the middle of night, he came back totally wasted, with noise fell down on the bed and started to snorr terribly. At the time, I really did not realize that this guy - with name Hugo - is gonna be my best friend and mate in NZ. In Auckland, I met one more for me very important person (if I do not count my English and spiritual teachers). Korean girl YiJung. The girl because of I later returned to New Zealand...
