About Me

So let me start my story with Ukraine. I lived in Kyiv till I turned 17 and then my parents sent me to Poland to get mature a bit. So I went. But instead of learning the art of journalism, I started traveling. During my first year, I visited 14 countries and over 30 cities.
So I could not stop.
During the second year, 12 more.
So I came up with an idea to start my travel blog about all my experiences and how to cut the expenses down.
Out Of The Bubble - https://outofthebubble.org/ - became a fruit of my non-stop moving, traveling, hitchhiking, and Couchsurfing.

A bit later I went to live in Brazil for 2 months and was teaching kids English in Salvador de Bahia. When I came back I moved to Germany, to Nuremberg, for my Erasmus year. I was lucky enough to travel all around Germany and lived in Hamburg for 2 months. Man, I adore this city.

I also went on my longest hitchhiking trip with my best friend Maja. We made it through all Balkan countries all by hitchhiking and Couchsurfing.
We had pretty good adventures that ended up at police station in Albania and in the forests of Bosnia and Herzegovina. So I wrote a book "Woke Up In The Balkans" - https://outofthebubble.org/my-books/

After my German experience, I went to Poland to in content marketing that is also my passion but, unfortunately, 9-5 job in Warsaw turned out to be hell for me. So I moved to Spain.

I have spent my summer 2019 in Barcelona, volunteering as an English teacher for kids. Here, I started my Podcast "Travel Out-Bubbled Stories" - https://outofthebubble.org/podcasts/ - so I basically talk about traveling on budget and education abroad. Pretty fun stuff and I interview lots of people.

I have also started customizing trips for young people. So basically if you are broke and have no time - I will plan your trip :0 https://outofthebubble.org/let-me-plan-a-cheap-trip-for-you/

I am just trying to have lots of fun while moving all around the world :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

This platform has changed my life. Thanks to CS I have has an opportunity to visit over 35 countries during the span of 3 years. I became a full-time traveler and an Instagrammer https://www.instagram.com/travel_out_bubbled/ and met tons of awesome people who I call my best friends today and I was enabled to hitchhike all over the world.

So let's just live the adventure!

Interests

Besides photography and writing, I adore marketing and advertising. So if you are a creative soul like, we will definitely have loooong talks!

And sports sports sports! I mean, I gotta stay fit when backpacking for weeks. So yes, volleyball, CrossFit, kickboxing, TRX, and rollerblading! And all kinds of water sports. I am dying to learn surfing so I think one day I will end up living in a country of high waves!

Music, Movies, and Books

I would say, Guess, If I adore Barcelona, Brazil, and Spanish language.
So yes, reggaeton, salsa, bachata, but also good electro vibes and deep house with R&B to start a day.

Books... I would say my favorite ones are still those that I read when I was 14 - about pirates, lost islands, brave children, and broken hearts. But lately, I am more into marketing books and biographies :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

When I was 14 I flew to the USA for one-month leadership, that was pretty awesome.
I recall my days during hitchhiking in Eastern Europe as the best part of my life. I watched bonfire on a Swiss lake, ran from criminals in Frankfurt, partied on a Norwegian island and then dropped into winter sea in Stavanger, I got lost at night in Milano and Brazilians saved me :)
I became a writer and a travel podcaster.
I lived in Brazil and taught kids.
I love charities and trying to help those in need wherever I go :)
