About Me

Hacker and overthinker. It's been some time since I've actively traveled though. Would like to change that and resume going out on journeys. Just too lazy to do backpacking trips at the moment. Not being planned scares me.
Not the typical sights checklist traveler either. More of the workation types (like remote year), where I can live in a place like a local for a period of time and enjoy the place (without guides or a team of course). Would love to try every local white beer in Europe some day.
