About Me

I'm the happiest person on Earth. But it's only my theory, you can discuss with it ;)

I'm a writer and journalist specialized in Mexico where I came in 2011 and I lost my heart. I have a blog called Mexico Magico about culture of Mexico, I wrote a guidebook to this country and a book with reports about modern beliefs in Mexico (all in Polish). While in Poland I give lectures and classes about Mexico.

Now with my boyfriend we are walking through Mexico and the US on foot (he's walking from Panama, with me from Zipolite, Oaxaca), we're planning to get this way to Canada. I love this way of travelling for being so natural speed for moving of human beings. This way I can know totally new places and different faces of Mexico. And more people who are the most important in our trip.


People, people, people.
