A few things about the author of this page
My name is Beata. I was born and live in Tarnów, Poland, some 70 km from Kraków.
I like travelling because it lets me escape everyday routine, because I like discovering interesting places and things, meeting different people, experiencing things, generally. I never plan my trips to the last possible detail, I often leave things to chance and it gives me a thrill of adventure.
I like visiting all sorts of places; I like big cities for the culture and entertainment they offer. I love places where you can feel close to nature, national parks, nature reserves, or the simple countryside. I'm a great fan of hiking and I can recommend the still unspoiled beauty of Polish mountains to everyone. I'm very fond of animals, too, both wild and tame. I used to have a dog, now I keep a cat and I adore her, though the love is hardly reciprocated :)
I'd love to travel more. Compared with some other VT members I feel a mere travelling toddler. The place I'd like to visit most is New Zealand. The place that has fascinated me most so far - impossible to say.
I only speak Polish and English. I've never been able to learn German, probably because I've never tried hard enough.
I'm terrible with numbers, names, and all kind of factual information, so if you find any mistake of that kind on my travel pages, please, let me know. I must say I care more for the experience of the place than the facts I learn, though it's not always a rule.
Anyway, hope you'll enjoy my pages if you care to have a look :)
