Interests

Travelling

I love to explore new places. Getting to know better the history, culture, customs and food. My top destinations are big/huge cities, where you can experience the hustling and bustling of a daily life to the maximum. Nevertheless, I like also more calm places, like ancient buildings, churches, temples or wats.


Photo

Photography is one of my favourite hobbies. I like city and landscape photography. I am training to be more skilled in street and portrait photography. What is more, I like not only taking pictures, but also all what happens next, so all the post-processing steps. I like to use Photoshop as my main tool to do this.


Cooking

I love spending time in the kitchen, cooking various dishes. It makes me so relaxed. I like to do experiments in the kitchen, trying to not following cookbook all the time. My beloved cuisine is definitely the whole Asian quisine, where Thai and Chinese I like the most.


Reading

Reading is an awesome thing! I love fantasy and s-f books the most. Also a good political fiction and history book is worth reading. Recently I am trying to read some biographical books also.
