YOUR COOLEST EXPERIENCE
BEST MOMENTS IN LIFE ARE WHEN…
…you meet new people and share good moments.
Wherever I meet like minded people I get along and hang around with.
IF YOU COULD BE AN ANIMAL…
I’d be a cow! They’re so peaceful.
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.
