Hi, all! My name is Yuliya, I was born in Ukraine but moved to Canada at the age of 12. I am currently living in Madrid, Spain where I’m teaching English to High School students. During my free time, I like to travel to different places while documenting my adventures and experiences online.
I hope this blog will inspire people to follow their dreams. Just a year ago, after months of studying in my final year at University and working two part-time jobs, I was incredibly happy to have booked a one week vacation to Dominican Republic. However a few months later in September of 2015, I took a leap of faith and moved to a different country all by myself and have since managed to visit Portugal, France, Germany, Ireland, south of Spain, and surprised my family in Canada by coming home for Christmas. That being said, while most people are afraid to change their traditional life route (finish university, find a full-time job, get married, have kids) I am more than happy to be taking this time for myself (while I still can, of course) and being able to do things that make me feel independent, adventurous, joyful, and most importantly, make me grow as a person. If you are someone who has an opportunity to work, study, or volunteer in a different country, I say “Just do it!” It will definitely be nerve-racking, intimidating, and even scary at times, but I promise you it will also be exciting, rewarding, thrilling, and extremely overpowering.
