  • Description

    I am a Yoga Alliance instructor. Before I started travelling in June 2018, I was teaching English as a foreign language and Czech for foreigners at a university in Prague. I paint, I am involved in the art of photography (as a model, stylist and photographer), I play the guitar and enjoy dancing and singing. I am a published writer with the fourth book to come out in several months. I review ballet, theatrical plays and concerts. I love to travel the world and discover new places, cultures and backgrounds. I have my youtube channel and a travel blog in English.
