About Me


to live, laugh and love.


I'm a verry optmistic person. I Like travelling, meeting new persons, buddhism, spiritualism, new experiences.


Sharing starts with give. When you live like this you always recieve at the right time.
“A journey is best measured in friends, rather than miles.” – Tim Cahill

"To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.” –
Bill Bryson

“Adventure is a path. Real adventure – self-determined, self-motivated, often risky – forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world. The world the way it is, not the way you imagine it. Your body will collide with the earth and you will bear witness. In this way you will be compelled to grapple with the limitless kindness and bottomless cruelty of humankind – and perhaps realize that you yourself are capable of both. This will change you. Nothing will ever again be black-and-white.” – Mark Jenkins
