About me - the Adventurous Traveler.

Hi! I’m Eva, hiking, adventurous traveling & climbing fanatic with a passion for independent travel and reportage photography. I found solo traveling the most valuable way of exploring the world. A crucial step was leaving my second job for a one-way ticket destination – backpacking south-east Asia, which trust me wasn’t the easiest decision in the times of normative social influence. 

Last few years I spent traveling the adventurous way, discovering most remote locations through hiking and interacting with local communities. Follow my footprints, stories, guides, itineraries and inspirations to start your adventure.
