This is our house made of straw and clay. It was built over 50 years ago.
Traditionally mud houses were typical homes in Ukraine. If someone did not have a home, their family or sometimes everyone in the village would get together and build one quickly.
Clay houses are warm in winter and cool in summer.
We don’t have running water and the toilet is outside, but the toilet view is majestic, outlooking garden, mist and chickens. Continue reading “Move to the village, Ukraine”
Almost a year ago, I flew on the air balloon for the first time. Then I came to Zavallya for four days to check out Atlantida cave, and the crystals of Atlantida charmed me with their beauty.

100 ideas in a fun lifelong to-do list

When I am asked – where do you live at the moment? I have no answer to this question. I live everywhere and nowhere at the same time, and this broadens my opportunities, at the same time making the range of responsibilities broader. I am Ukrainian, but visa policies are the only barriers that stop me from being all over the world.
We, the people, have so much in common that we often unconsciously try to separate from one another, but my biggest realisation in life is that we are one. And so, I travel the world, whenever I can, to celebrate this unity and diversity.
How do I travel?
I do not simply travel, I penetrate the lives of locals, Continue reading “Traveling for life – #travelenjoyrespect”
