Favorite quote “Traveling is the only thing you buy, that makes you richer.”

I love outdoor activities, nature, and animals. I draw and create with my own hands. I find beauty in the little things.

And travel helps in search of inspiration and aesthetic pleasure.

For now, I have visited 22 countries.

What are my interests besides traveling?

I love to learn and try new things. I am interested in tech, psychology, and marketing. I even studied programming. I like to automate and optimize everything.

I am in favor of active pastimes: snowboarding, cycling, rollerblading, and motorbikes.

My first trip abroad was when I was 5 years old. We were traveling as a family from Kiev to Tallinn. I did not get to the final destination then. We overcame more than 1,500 km by train to St. Petersburg, and we were turned away at the border with Estonia due to problems with our documents.

However, I did see Saint-Petersburg.

Visited 27 countries: 🇸🇰 🇭🇺 🇵🇱 🇨🇾 🇮🇹 🇪🇸 🇧🇾 🇱🇹 🇷🇺 🇱🇻 🇪🇪 🇸🇪 🇬🇷 🇩🇪 🇳🇱 🇧🇪 🇦🇹 🇻🇦 🇦🇪 🇺🇦 🇮🇱 🇸🇮 🇭🇷 🇹🇭 🇲🇾 🇸🇬 🇶🇦

Our approach to travel

We have been together for over 6 years, and all this time, we are actively traveling. We began by exploring our homeland and traveled to different parts of Ukraine. Then it was enriched by traveling abroad.

We make our trips intense and varied. We don’t like to rest lying on the beach sipping cocktails the whole week. We come back tired physically, but charged with emotions.

We don’t plan to leave everything, buy one-way tickets, and go on a year-long trip to Asia. We are looking for a balance, making life saturated, not only with traveling but other things also.

A favorite pastime – walks around a city. In the central part of Kiev, we have already walked around all the streets and alleys. A 10-25 km walk around the town is quite a usual thing for us.

Our goals in which the blog plays an important role:

1. Share our travel experiences and tips.

2. Create interesting, informative, and entertaining video and photo travel content.

3. Help as many people as possible to discover new experiences, places, and emotions.

4. Create a community of experienced and novice travelers, along with whom to promote active and intense travel.
