Interests

I love travelling! I am always on the look for finding new people to accompany me to new places. I also have a knack for learning languages so I spend a lot of my spare time watching foreign movies or using Duolingo.

When forced to be indoors, besides sitting in front of my computer, I like to play the guitar, explore music and play chess.
