About me

About me

Originally from Slovakia, I recently lived and worked in Thailand. I moved there in October 2018 shortly after I had finished my round the world trip. Before that I lived in the Czech Republic for 9 years.

I worked as an English teacher in a government school where I gave classes to kindergarten and primary school pupils. I am passionate about teaching and training people. I am eager to travel all around the world and visit every single country. I have visited 37 countries in Europe and 69 countries altogether.

Also, I am fond of speaking foreign languages. I can speak English very well. I have good knowledge of German and Dutch. And I am learning Spanish, too.

I like cycling, hiking, skiing and reading.

From August 1, 2017 to August 1, 2018 I was on a round the world trip.
