I live to travel and I travel to live. I'm a travelling Gypsy with a passion for the English word, being inspired daily by the different cultures and colours, scents and scenic overloads, sensory explosions, and mind-awakening experiences. The ones that take your breath away. Walking along with the earth, one country at a time, it's what I live for; a life full of adventure, sharing my thoughts and experiences through literature.
