Wondering who is behind all this?

I always smile a lot

Hi everyone. My name is Marta, a while ago I decided to quit my 9-5 Job, sold everything I owned to travel the world……STOP! That is not true (apart from my name)! I've never even had a 9 to 5 Job and never had to sell my car or house or furniture, I've never really owned anything that expensive, well, maybe a few DSLR cameras, but I am certainly not selling those, because my cameras always travel with me.

 

 

 

I am a traveller, photographer, blogger, expat, sometimes troublemaker and most of all a regular person with big dreams!

 

I am Polish

I was born and raised in Poland a country that a lot of people, which I met on the road, couldn’t point out on a map. A country with a big history, great cuisine, extremely welcoming people and very underrated among tourists, but luckily that is slowly changing. 

 

I've been out of Poland for over 9 years now, but I always get very nostalgic when I think about my home country. I go back there very frequently to visit my family, who still lives there. 

 

I speak four languages

Yes, you read correctly, four, and none of them perfectly! 

 

Polish is my native language, but with each year I spend abroad, my polish gets worse and worse. I am a bit ashamed to say that!

 

I learned English during my 2,5 years in the USA, where I worked as an au pair, and during 2 summers I spent working and travelling through Scotland. 

 

I also lived, studied and worked in Germany for over 4 years combined. First near Frankfurt am Main, then in Potsdam and the last 2 years in Berlin. That is how I picked up German. 

 

Spanish was and still is a great passion of mine. I picked up quite a lot doing a course at the University in Germany and then through venturing for 7 months through South America. Seriously! There is no better way to learn a language than to spend some time in a country where it is spoken.  

 

 

I am a photographer

I want to show you the world through my lens and give you few tips on travelling along the way. 

I have just spent one year on a working holiday visa in New Zealand which forever changed me (I know it sound cheesy, but it did), followed by 6 months in Australia and I am currently based in the Canadian Rockies exploring the best photo spots and outdoor places in this beautiful part of the world.
