Behind the Scences

Writing is my passion, my therapy, my luck and my life.

“A vida louca”

…was one of my biggest dreams. I wanted to start my own weblog and finally I did in April 2015.

…is what describes me and my life the best. I am a traveller, a world conqueror and an unconditional dreamer.

…represents everything what I speak up for: internationality, frankness, tolerance and respect.


10 Facts about me, myself and I:

  • I have written my first text – a short story – in the age of nine.
  • I have taken my first picture as I was ten years old with my neon-coloured camera, a gift from my parents.
  • I always wanted to be a writer. Now I am a journalist.
  • I am in love with travelling. In the past five years, I have travelled more than 200,000 km by foot, car, train, plane or rickshaw.
  • I have already visited more than 30 countries in Europe, Asia, South and North America – and there are hopefully much more coming.
  • I am a passionate photographer, too. My dream is to become a photo journalist, a job which connects all of my passions.
  • I have Polish ancestors, but I can barely speak any word.
  • Instead I speak three other languages fluently: German, English and Brazilian Portuguese.
  • I wish to emigrate to another country one day, but my purse is of another opinion.
  • My idols are Mahatma Gandhi, Coco Chanel and Antoine de Saint-Exupery.

    Sehr schöne Seite und interessante Reiseberichte. Ich möchte auch einmal das Pantanal besuchen.
    Muss man gut reiten können?

    1. A vida louca says:

      Danke für das Kompliment. Nein, man kann sich auch zu Fuß fortbewegen, mit dem Boot oder eben mit einem Geländewagen. Natürlich kann man die Landschaft auch mit einem Pferd durchforsten, was natürlich etwas Anderes ist, als auf dem Fluss. Ich fand diese Erfahrung auf jeden Fall spannend. Möchte man reiten, so ist auch bei den Trips – insofern man nicht ohne Guide hinfährt – immer jemand dabei, der die Pferde kennt.
