About Me


Travelling around Asia/Europe


Made in poland, bred in Australia

I love people and travel, I've met so many amazing people and love life. I've lived in Poland until I was 3, then Italy until I was 5, then Australia 15 years until I finished university at the fresh age of 20. I quickly decided to move to Japan for 4 amazing years and in 2008 took a year off to travel around Europe/Asia. Finished off an MBA, and started working for a fortune 10 company in global HR management to fund my travels!

I love music, anything from classical (i play the violin) to r&b and salsa (I love dancing, but am generaly better when i'm drunk :)

I enjoy drinking vodka and going out to clubs, or chill with friends, relax and talk about anything

People describe me as a party animal, but I actually mostly prefer to be outdoors in the mountains or on the beaches of the world. I love sports and love beautiful scenic views. I also love learning about peoples lives and cities which are less known in the world. Love history and learning it from locals.
