On the following page you can see countries and places visited by me.


I try to choose unique places or unconventional ways of travelling. I feel comfortable and wonderful as in a five-star villa in Sardinia as in a tent in African savanna or Tibetan mountains. That allows me to feel all range of emotions without boxing myself with philosophy imposed by the society.


The blog with photos and stories will be filled consequently considering time and inspiration. If you have any questions about any of countries in the left column, but you didn’t find necessary information about that place in the blog, feel always free to email me and I will attempt to give all information that I possess.


Get inspired and pack your things!

What to tell you about Shaolin?

When I was going to visit Shaolin, I read plenty of skeptical feedbacks that the modern Shaolin is nothing but an attraction. And I was wondering – why people can watch but not see?  Seeing a purpose is more important than a gloss of appearance.


The Shaolin monastery‘s name was spread out as a birthplace of a unique martial art U-Shu, there are still a lot of legends in China about incredible skill of shaolin kung-Fu followers. However, Shaolin is known not just as a martial art but as a sacrosanct Chinese practice of chan-buddhism.

Volunteering in Kenya. African journal

While I was thinking how to describe my first volunteer trip in Africa, so that it was natural, I found my journal. It contained descriptions of just several days out of entire month, however, the mood and purpose was precisely clear.


Five years’ prescription events.

There are no unattainable heights in this world

An idea to win Elbrus came out suddenly and was committed in the same manner. The risky thought appeared in my mind on June 22 and by July 3 I have already done it - winked to the world from the European highest point, Elbrus. Moreover, I left there some tears because of overflowing happiness.


I have never been in the mountains before it.

The Chernobyl zone of alienation

I am frequently asked to tell about Chernobyl, but to be precise – about the alienation zone of Chernobyl’s Nuclear power station.


I was in alienation zone almost 2 years ago for just a couple of days. Initially, I was about just to walk around the abandoned buildings, edifices, schools, factories and to watch by myself what a ghost city is. It was interesting to see how nature recovers after such disastrous cataclysms. Eventually, I got more than I was expecting to.

Hobbiton, or there is always a place for a fairy-tale in your life 

There are so many beautiful places in the world, and none of the manmade places can be compared to the beauty of nature itself. But there are exceptions in every rule.


Shire (in the diversity of translations – Hobbit shire, a country, Hobbitland) is a country of Hobbits in the legendary story by J.R.R. Tolkien. It is situated in the North-West part of the Midland, in Eriador, on the territory of Arnor kingdom.
