I used to be a human rights lawyer and spent a whopping 15 years of my life working in academia and with NGOs and international organizations. I eventually abandoned my career to follow my true calling, which is a life of travels: I simply couldn't face the idea that so many amazing places exist in the world and I wouldn't get to see them. Since then, I have rafted down mighty rivers, zip lined across canyons and trekked to the craters of active volcanoes. Through my blog I share my stories, I give tips to other travelers and I occasionally go on a rant. My mission is hiking up all volcanoes in the world!
