One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Had the opportunity to travel to the UK, Paris, South of France and Ireland and spent time with the locals..enjoying cultures more than focusing on the traditional touristy thing. But loving even the small, basic things in life... appreciating cheap wine with good friends, live music..or even just listening to a vinyl. closing my eyes, enjoying the moment, reading a good book and having discussions with people close to me. Fresh air and nature is my sanctuary.

Also had the opportunity to travel to Russia as part of a volunteer program.
