Short story of my life

As you can probably tell from my “weird” last name.

I am 100% polish. I was born in a beautiful city called Wrocław, just by the Oder River in western Poland.

When I was a year old, my family moved to a town called Hel located in northern Poland on the top of the Hel Peninsula where I spent my whole childhood.

Lasttly, we moved to a town nearby Hel, named Puck where my familly lives until nowdays.

Travels

Since I remember I was truly fascinated by traveling. The possibility of discovering new places, meeting people from all over the world, and be able to learn about their cultures made me feel like I was on the right track.

The first time that I moved abroad, was to take part in an Erasmus Exchange program. I had the chance to study in Horsens ( east coast of Jutland region of Denmark) at Via University.

This experience was the beginning of my travel journey. Since then I have been constantly traveling. I had a chance to live and work in 5 different countries over 2 continents, and had the chance to visit more than 47 countries! And I don’t plan to stop just yet! There are still many adventures and locations I would love to feel and see still pending on my ” to-do list”.

Currently, and for two amazing years, I’ve been residing with my husband and our two beautiful cats in Malaga, Spain.

Passions

I’m interested in too many things, but besides travel, my other passions are music and literature.

I sing, play the ukulele, and lately trying to make my own music ( that one day maybe will see the light of day) in my spare time.

My favorite literary genres are detective novels, criminal fiction, crime stories, and thrillers. However, I have developed lately a great passion for podcasts and audiobooks.

Like many of us, we all have one addiction at least. Mine is food! I simply love to eat <3. I love to discover new tastes, new flavors, and textures of any kind of food, and I am always excited when I find some new recipes for delicious dishes.

Dreams and life expectations

Mostly I seek to live slowly, savor life, watch its nuances, laugh during the ride, and end peacefully with little regrets.
