  • Description

    Hello, my name is Michaela and I am 30 years old. I come from the Czech Republic and I am currently travelling around the world. I studied Business Economics at University and Renovation of Buildings at High School.

    I´ve quit my jobs because I would like to travel the world, get to know other cultures better still, do some volunteering, improve my language skills. I like meeting new people and helping others.

    In Prague I was working as an Event Manager for the Czech Association of Hotels and Restaurants. During my free time I was doing a Moderator of Social Events - speed dating. Last year I moderated the biggest Travelling festival in the Czech Republic, where I also had a lecture.

    When I was studying at university I had a chance to live in these countries:
    Italy (I was working as a babysitter for 2 months)
    England (I was studying at University of Huddersfield for 1 year)
    Portugal (I was studying at ISCAL University for 6 months - Erasmus programme)
    Spain (I was doing an internship for Marketing Web Department in a translation company in Barcelona for 6 months - Erasmus programme)
    United States of America (I was working as a ride operator in Kings Dominion Amusement Park for 3 months - Work & Travel programme)

    I run every morning, like climbing, surfing + hiking, attending a philosophical school. I am friendly, communicative, open minded. My colleagues would tell you that I am a very reliable person. I personally think that I am fun to be with :-) I grew up with 3 cats and I love them. I have a brother Jaroslav who is living in England.
