About Me

Travelling with this cool girl!
Please come sit and listen! Let me tell you the story! One little boy didn’t know the way to choose for his life: on the one hand he liked essential sciences in school, clever books and planned all the things for his future. On the other hand he liked stories about mighty warriors, wise elves and cruel dragons, school theater club and spontaneous adventures. He studied 4 boring years in an engineering university but at the same time he was writing scripts for role playing games and other events. Then he moved to another country as he expected things to change but in 2 years of studying other boring stuff he realized that nothing changed except language people are talking around. And then he had an opportunity of his life and he was brave enough not to miss it. He took his backpack and went to the edge of the world!..
(This boy was me)
I’d love to tell you the end of this story by person 😉
