What one word describes my childhood?
Amazing. My childhood was in this time when the pc games just started to be interesting, but I’m happy that I never played them so much, I usually spent my free time outside playing football and any other outdoor activities (tennis, basketball, in winter ice-hockey and many others)
How do I wind down after work?
After work when I’m really tired I usually listen a good music (Queen, Led Zeppelin, AC DC and this kind of music), but of course I like go out with my friends to talk and drink the beer, play bowling or billiard, just have a good time.
If I was to tell one person “Thank You” for helping me become the person I am today, who would it be and why?

Skiing, this sport activity I really love, even that Denmark doesn’t have any mountains, but I used to ski a lot.
If you really knew me, you'd know _____.
I love cars. I can’t help myself but old cars I just love; they have something what new modern cars don’t have. I’m 22 years old but I mostly like cars that were manufactured before I was born. (if I can mention some: Ferrari 250 California spyder, Ferrari F40, Mercedes Gullwing, Toyota Supra, Lancia Delta Integrale, Mazda RX 7 and many other great cars from 20th century)

Sometimes when not everything is going well I have to be focused on myself, I learnt that opportunity to change my life will not come every day.
How do I act when I'm stressed out?
I’m very quiet person and to get me into stress is very hard, I know that stress now day “kills” a lot of people but I try to be relaxed and solve problems one by one. Do not think about lot of things on once.
Sports or other activities?
In Denmark cycling and running. In Slovakia skiing in the winter and in summer football with my old friends.
