About Me

there is one chinese proverb that i currently like a lot. it says:
read ten thousand books and walk ten thousand miles. and indeed i keep reading and walking. i enjoy my way.


i'm arsa - full-time traveller and vagabond. former graduate in history of arts, polyglot and tea-junkie^^ in october 2014 i started a holiday trip to bangkok with my friends and after visiting thailand finally did fall in love with road. in november i cancelled my return ticket and since that time consider myself full-time traveller. meanwhile i got through cambodia, vietnam, laos and hongkong to mainland china.

since september 2015 i'm travelling in north and central america. i started in new york, crossed the east coast from north to south and through mexico got into cuba. after 2 amazing months spent in cuba, i travelled in mexico for another 2 months: from yucatan to chiapas and then up to mexico df. such great time i had, such amazing people met!currently im back to united states, to the city of angels.

soon my plane will bring be back to china where i will continue my work and studies for the next 5 months. but as usual i don't know where i'm gonna wake up tomorrow, but i'm sure it will be an exciting place to be at ;)

upd. 5 months are over and now im preparing for my third year of travels. stay tuned^^


I'm vegan and I'm very happy about it ;)
