One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I won some ping pong (table tennis) championships back in my school days.
I used to work in China and in Vietnam as an English teacher in a private school and in kindergartens.
I visited Petra for free. Maybe you know about how expensive the entrance to this ancient city (maybe the most expensive entrance ticket in the world), but I entered by black hole at the night, despite local guys had been trying to discouraged me. That was hell of a journey!
I spent a night in a forbidden house near the Prague's city center. That had been an insane day overall from the beginning but I can't write about it here🔞
I served in army in 2012-2013. For a half of a year I had been in the Gumry's Russian military base (Armenia).
