  • Description

    After two years of art academy, I started travelling at the age of 20. The world seemed to present a richer education than any school could offer.
    I worked on my travels, many times as volunteer. Or worked to save money to travel, mainly in Holland and Ireland and the last 12 years in the Czech Republic where lives my 17 year old daughter.
    I worked in workshops and factories but also a lot outside: gardening, helping on farms (cows, horses, goats, sheep, chickens, bees) and for a few years in an Irish community looking after people with disabilities.
    Learned the skill of basketry (willow) and taught others.
    For one year I looked after an elderly couple in an old manor house in Ireland, minding their medication, cooking them simple meals and feed the deer in their walled enclosure.
    I pointed walls, built stepping stones in gardens.
    Worked two years in a bronze foundery, welding bronze statues, a job I loved.
    For seven months I was in a Romanian orphanage with an Irish organisation, to improve conditions and stimulate children who had suffered severe neglect.

    On the moment, after a winter spent in the Scottish Highlands, I decided to settle back in Czechia and have my own quiet place for a while. Surrounded by my books. Hoping to be back on the road again in a few years' time. May whoever reads this stay well and in good spirits.

  • Autres infos...

    Life is about learning. Though I love my books (philosophy, literature), the ultimate experience is out there, within circumstances dictating what needs doing.
    New people, new situations, always adapting.
    Besides having interesting conversations, I love to be practical as well. And learn in the process.
