Australia: Gibb River Road Adventure

Gibb River Road_3

18 days on the road, sleeping under the stars in the middle of nowhere inside the roof-top tent of the car. 18 days of sneaking into camping sites for showers, cooking in the dark, sitting around the fire in the evening, embracing the sky full of stars, waking up at 6am to enjoy wild nature and screaming loud from the beauty around… Yes, I have done it all! Believe it or not, just less than a year ago I was standing in the top-brand luxury store, assisting people with their purchasing decision, and now, camping and sleeping in the tent with two German travel mates I had met just a day before the trip! How crazy is this?! How unpredictable life is?!

Agung Volcano in Bali

I climbed the highest volcano in Bali and 4th highest in Indonesia! It was long, tought and unbelievably cool: we spent 12 hours at the Mount Agung (from the start until the finish), slept under the sky full of stars, climbed extremely steep cliff (at some places 45 degrees) and observed incredible sunrise from the summit of 3000m. It was he most  physically difficult, but most incredible, thing I have ever done so far! When other tourists had left the summit and we stayed alone, I screamed from happiness! Read More →

Just 8-9 hours bus ride from Manila up to the north and you are in the middle of beautiful green rice terraces. My school friend came to visit me in Philippines, so we went together to explore the green part of this country. Read More →

Flashback to Cameron Highlands, my favorite place in Malaysia, where I felt like at home. The place where I could breathe freely and fill my lungs with fresh mountain air. Yes, it was very cold at night! And yes, I slept in all my warm clothes plus the woolen scarf and the blanket. Yes, it has been raining everyday in the afternoon. And yes, I spent amazing 4 days there! I was in Cameron Highlands in January 2015 (sorry for the delayed post), but this place still remains the highlight of my one month stay in Malaysia.
