I grew up in a little village named Kanianka, in Slovakia, where we have scorching summers, white winters and forests full of amazing wildlife, including bears!
I love my home country, but I always knew that it wasn’t the place I wanted to stay.
When I was 22, I felt stuck. I had a bucket list full of things which I wasn’t able to cross off, I was fed up with low-paying jobs and I knew that I wanted to do more with my life.
So, I made a bold decision, packed my suitcase and moved to England. Skip forward seven years, and it was the best decision of my life.
I’m a strong believer that life is what you make of it. If you want to be miserable and have a miserable life and moan about things you wished you had, then that’s what your life will look like for a long time.
But if you want to get motivated to travel, explore, live more, be happy and turn everything into an opportunity, you are in the right place.
I was able to cross off so many things from my bucket list since moving to England, including visiting San Francisco which I dreamt of since I was 15; getting braces and sorting my teeth so I won’t feel embarrassed about my smile anymore, to getting a job I love.
It is all about the mindset.
