Hi! My name is Jana and I’m a travel blogger. The irony is that I actually never liked writing – I postponed my writing of my bachelor thesis as much as I could (probably 3 times in total). On the other hand, I love photography. I’m not a pro in photography, but I’m a pro in Photoshop which makes my photos look almost like from a professional.
And so it happened, that after a year of my life in the Maldives I ended up with thousands of photos. My friends on Facebook were getting frustrated by all my photos from beaches (especially in winter), so I decided to start a blog. But a blog with photos only doesn’t tell much and I had to kick my lazy butt into writing. I made even a bigger whip on myself by deciding to have my blog not just in Czech but also in English for my friends around the world.
Most of my travelling is around the country where my husband Lee and I decide to work. The year 2014 I spent my time in the capital city of the Maldives in the middle of crystal clear water of Indian ocean. Everyone was jealous that I live in such paradise, but I recommend to everyone to visit that concrete jungle filled with motorbikes known as Male and where I spent my first two days locked in my room crying – it was a huge culture shock. It made me to write one of my most read articles about the other side no one knows about. Here it is. But that’s where I met my amazing Lee.
After that we moved to a strategically beneficial place – Malaysia. This country is close to all my dream destinations (Myanmar, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos…). During our life in Malaysia we were able to visit Indonesia, Thailand and Myanmar.
In Januray 2017 we moved to an industrial city called Hai Phong in Vietnam where we worked for another year. We saved some money and decided to move to Bali in Indonesia for 6 months before getting married. Kinda reversed honeymoon 🙂
In September 2018, we said yes and celebrated our marriage together with friends from 16 different countries who we met during our travels around the world.
In our first year of marriage, we have sailed the Caribbean with an awful captain, swam and bathed in volcanic active water, faced minus 40 in Kazachstan, partied at illegal raves, climbed Table Mountain, driven ourselves on safari and across South Africa, done the 3rd largers bungee in the world and faced 40 degrees in the desert of Oman where we currently live.
I can’t wait to face the next year!
This travel blog is a summary of my amazing experiences, but also of my disasters and escapades, which I’m lately attracting, plus tons of travel photos from my trips. I hope, that this blog becomes an inspiration for other wandering souls and dreamers.
And the rest of the story? Well… you figure it out…
