"MY WORLD...." Wojtek_R's Profile

I lived in TYCHY, POLAND as a child until 1992. Moved to Canada on Feb.9,1992 and have lived in MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO ever since where I got a degree in GIS and Economics at the University of Toronto
In 2003 I lived in CHRISTCHURCH, NEW ZEALAND and attended the Christchurch College of Education to complete my teacher training so now I am a high school geography and tourism (what else?) teacher. I managed to squeeze in some travelling before and after my stay in New Zealand...then I was off teaching on the beautiful island of Abaco in The Bahamas for 2 years, I lived in TREASURE CAY, BAHAMAS, my fourth long term home
Now, I am back in Canada, currently living in ONTARIO
