About Me

CURRENT MISSION

ABOUT ME

We're a Japanese-Polish couple living in Tokyo. We got married in June 2014. We both share a passion for travelling to different places.

Aiko I stayed in Australia for 2 years with a Working Holiday Visa and travelled around South East Asia and China. I am working as a writer for a weekly magazine. I really love travelling and my most favorite place is Tibet.

Emil I studied Japanese and Public Relations at Warsaw University. In 2010 I studies in China for one year and then in 2012 in Japan as well. Now I work in Tokyo in a IT company as a web marketing specialist. Triathlon is part of my lifestyle. I train everyday preparing for my first Ironman race which is 3.8 km swim, 180 km bike and 42 km run.

PHILOSOPHY

Suit up Carpe diem To better yourself everyday Never give up
