About me

Hi, my name is Maria and originally I'm from Russia. I've been traveling extensively around the world for the last years and currently I settled down on the beautiful Thai island, on Ko Phangan. I'm passionate traveler and freelance writer. While I'm on the road, I love to explore new places, to meet new people, to challenge myself with new traveling experiences like riding a motorbike, diving, snorkeling, hiking, trekking... what else is on the way? My life philosophy is there is no any difficulties or obstacles that couldn't be overcome, they are created by our mind and driven by fears. It's just a question of intention. Everything can be possible in this life 🙂
