WHY DO YOU TRAVEL?
I wanted to see the world. I’d been reading books about people traveling and I became inspired. I contacted Ukranians around the world and I really wanted to do the same. I started hitchhiking mainly because it’s a different way of travel… and I like different.

COFFEE OR TEA?
None. I view caffeine as a drug. And I don’t do drugs.
