"Welcome everyone!!!" Ela_S's Profile

Welcome friends, thanks for visiting! I hope you'll enjoy it here!!!

My life so far...

27 June 1980 - I was born:)

1980 - 1999 - Very happy childhood and teenage years in Kety, a small town in southern Poland.

1994 - my first foreign trip. To Slovakia with my parents and our Fiat 126p:)

1995 - first camping trip in Europe with my parents. After that it became the tradition in the family. We've been all over Italy together, several times in Corsica, also France, Spain, Germany... I guess that's how I got my travel bug!

1999 - 2004 - moved to Krakow (the best city in the world) and studied International Economics

summer 2002 - working and travelling in the USA! First flight in my life, 3 amazing months in Grand Canyon National Park and over two weeks on the road in the west of the US.

Oct - Dec 2003 - took off to Ukraine to join World Without Borders AIESEC project. I spent 2 months with people all around the globe travelling around Ukraine, presenting our countries to the school kids.

14 June 2004 - took my final exam and got my Master's degree

Sep 2004 - Sep 2005 - dreams really come true! I spent a great year studying tourism in Sydney and travelling in Australia and Fiji.

2006 - Moved to Krakow again:) Found a job as a translator / assistant in a steel company and stayed there for over a year.

2007 - Following my heart, I'm leaving Krakow and moving to the town of Tarnobrzeg. If everything goes well, I'll be teaching English and exploring eastern part of my country.

Let's see what happens next...

Me and my love!

There's a great love story to tell! Details soon!

    hey, you're welcome. I wanted to go to Madagascar in 2001, to watch the Solar Eclipse, but couldn't make it. It sounds like a really fascinating place. Next time! You must come and see Wales if you visit Scotland ;) Is it Krakow that has the salt palace?
