I love exploring new cultures, civilizations, books... but most of all - people. Working as a guide has been so far one of the most beautiful experiences in my life. I hope to continue to grow with my work, to stay always in awe in front of all the remarkable places I am visiting on the way, and to be able to share that passion with the people I meet.
