He has lived in Australia untill 2004, when he moved back to Czech to visit his friends after very long time. He didn´t manage to leave Czech on a sail boat, but he decided to make his way back on a sail boat, though without his friends. He sold his house, he bought a sail boat and he left for Malaysia. Then he flown to United States, where he bought a second sail boat. He sailed through the Atlantic Ocean alone and arrived to Prague last autum. These days, he is on his way back to Australia on the sail boat again.
