In her free time blogging about traveling and food, learning Japanese and Mandarin Chinese. Used to sing in the WUT Academic Choir for several years. She is crazy about her cats...

Kondi
IT Manager, fulfilling the duties of manager of infrastructure and operations team. Doing everything that's possible so the portals such as filmweb.pl or radiozet.pl work quickly and efficiently, and are safe for users.
Privately looks for vulnerabilities in software, controls drones, takes photos, collects gadgets, wins contests and drinks too much beer. Run a microblog using his watch. He is crazy about his cats...

We both love to travel and have been to several countries already, mostly in Asia - Japan, South Korea, India, China, Malaysia, Nepal, Singapore, Vietnam, Taiwan and in EU, but also in both Americas - Brazil, Argentina, USA, Canada. But we still have so much to discover.
