About Me

CURRENT MISSION

learning, enjoying and trying to do my best

ABOUT ME

I come from a small country (Slovakia) in the middle of Europe. I grew up in a small town by the Tatra mountains, the highest ridge of the Carpathian Range. Since I was a child I used to visit the Tatras quite a bit and this has developed into my big love to the mountains. My other passions are traveling, learning foreign languages, and nature in general. My dream is to visit every continent and if it is possible to live there for some time. I am open-minded with positive thinking, spontaneous, trying to enjoy the presence and learn from everything.

PHILOSOPHY

"One should treat others as one would like others to treat oneself.""The past is already gone, the future is not yet here. There's only one moment for you to live, and that is the present moment. That's why it is called a present because it's a gift.""What you want to do, and what you can do, is limited only by what you can dream.""Never give up!""The road is the goal."
