First of all, thank you for visiting my travel blog! I was born in Praha, Czech Republic where I grew up until 3rd grade on a beloved small farm in Křečkov (loosely translated as “Hampsterville”). We then moved with my family to Japan for 6 years and then 4 years in Hong Kong for high school. After graduating from Stanford University in 2010, I moved to New York for 5 years where I worked as a derivatives trader and investment banker for Goldman Sachs, then as associate for Silver Lake, a $43 billion private equity fund focused on technology investments. This travel blog was started by popular demand to document my travels and to give you the reader ideas for the next trip abroad based on recommendations from local friends.
