About and beyond

The journey through North America
It was an accident - me surfing onto Amtrak website. The idea stuck, though. So when I decided to go to Seattle for two weeks, it was only natural for me not to fly any further than Chicago and then cross the Great Plains and the Rockies by train. It turned into one of my dearest memories of that summer.

Travel bio
School, too many episodes of Northern Exposure, and coincidental moments we call life, have had me travelling since an early age. Western Europe for beginners, familiar Central Europe, Finnish Lapland in snow, Greenlandic summer, recovering Balkans and some bits and pieces to fill the gaps. The future is still rather uncertain, but it includes some more former Yugoslavia and hopefully more North.

this is me in the clouds
