About Me


explore the different ways of life in the world


I have a curious mind, willing to learn and see how things work in this world. I try to win negative thoughts with positive, trying to see the bright side of life. Though this doesn't mean living in a bubble, but rather seeing things with a clear mind and maintaining peace. This is the only way to being able to help others. I enjoy conversations with people and listening how they perceive the world and life.
I've learned the hospitality of my father and so I could say I warmly welcome anyone with good intentions! :)


Life itself is such a wonder, one cannot live life without stopping to awe it from time to time. Using the gems given to every soul is a challenge, but one which brings the greatest happiness. Today, contributing to the world and humanity with the gifts given to me is the fulfillment of my purpose, the golden rule as my guide in everyday.
