About Me


Open my eyes and see the world outside.


You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one.

Working holiday in New Zealand from 2012 to 2013, SWEET AS experience. Hostel receptionist chick back in Queenstown, living in an old-school caravan on the backyard and having fun with friends from all over the world, simply the best time of my life.

Now working as a financial auditor.

Teach, Learn, Share

Traveling is a brutality. It forces you to trust strangers and to lose sight of all that familiar comfort of home and friends. You are constantly off balance. Nothing is yours except the essential things: air, sleep, dreams, sea, the sky - all things tending towards the eternal or what we imagine of it.

Finland, France, Germany, Indonesia, Malaysia, Netherlands, New Zealand, Singapore, Spain, Thailand
