5AM CLUB, CHILL OUT & LOUNGE, CORAL REEFS, LONG DISTANCE TRAIL
Translation and interpreting are not easy and not suited for everybody. You really have to love learning new words and mastering the jargon in different languages for every business event. A kind of a never-ending story! But I don’t complain. I actually love it because it improves my professional capability.
Luckily, I am not as serious as one might think. I have plenty of exciting hobbies and interests that I pursue passionately such as hiking, cycling, scuba diving, coral restoration, reading, volunteering, and traveling to distant exotic places. I set out on a 1-month journey to visit fascinating and unique Australia, picturesque Capri, lush Sri Lanka, and glittering Dubai, restored coral reefs in the Maldives, climbed the active Mount Vesuvius, dived in the Red Sea, researched whales and dolphins in the Balearics and brown toads in Croatia, which I described in my scientific paper for Oxford.
One of the most physically strenuous things I have ever done and am most proud of is walking the Camino de Santiago in Spain (1000+ km, 2018) and Via Francigena in Italy (500+ km, 2019). In near future, I see myself restoring bleached coral reefs in the Great Barrier Reef, walking to Jerusalem on foot, and completing the entire Via Francigena route from Canterbury to Rome (2000 km). Last but not least, I will definitely take a joyride to the magical and breathtakingly beautiful Positano for an Espresso Lungo and gelato al pistacchio.
My ultimate goal in life is to increase my personal mastery and professional capability day in day out.
I do that by attending personal growth and development courses, continuing professional development courses and various mastermind groups, traveling abroad for cultural enrichment, and reading inspiring biographies of successful people.
I just happen to be a great interpreter and sworn translator. How can I assist you?
