Hi There!

I’m Kinga. There are three things that float my boat: travel, sport and photography. These are also the topics you will most often hear about on this blog. Take a comfy seat and let me take you on my adventures.

I’m a translator by education and a destination photographer by passion. I have always had a strong need for independence and freedom. It used to cause me troubles when I used to work for a multinational corporation. It’s now my source of strength to carry out the wildest of my dreams.

Why Floating My Boat?

I’ve heard this idiom somewhere and it got stuck in my head. It’s so simple yet sometimes so unattainable to keep doing things that bring you happiness. I make each day of my life meaningful and hence I’ve called my website this way.

When I travel, I search for off-path places and am interested to see casual life instead of hyped tourist attractions. When I write about my travels, I share the places where I drank the best coffee. I tell you where the best sports for sunsets are. Or where I found the most friendly stray cats. I share the stories of how I climbed the mountains despite having fear of heights. Although you won’t find Wikipedia-like descriptions of popular spots, I’m sure there’s lots of inspiration waiting to be picked up.

How do I travel?

Usually solo. It gives me freedom that I need, space for spontaneity, time to take thought-out photographs.

I love solo travel because I am curious about the world. What does it mean for me? I don’t rush when travelling. I don’t mind skipping some tourist attractions for the sake of spending some quality time with newly-met people and talking about what their lives are. People first, sights second. 

I love hiking and all sorts of outdoor adventures. When I am not travelling, I go to the gym four times a week and enjoy the feeling of being exhausted after a decent workout. When I am travelling, I always seek for some trekking opportunities. The longer, the more challenging, the better. I’ve trekked solo in Iceland, Kosovo, Albania, Montenegro, Poland, Romania, and am planning some epic hikes this year too.

If you’re a girl wanting to travel solo and experience some adventures, come and join me on my blog. If you have any questions, send me an email – I’m always happy to help. If you like my posts or photographs, leave a comment! Seeing someone appreciates my work motivates me to keep on running this site.
