pati's journey within

It's never too late to start a new adventure

Welcome to my space, I’m glad to see you here! Whether you are like me and decided to change your life around a new dream or just wandering (because not all who wander are lost) – I am here to tell you that everything is possible. 

I am Pati. Traveller, photographer, dreamer and believer in impossible.

After years of trying to settle into regular life, I decided that this is not the life I want to live. I was made for dreaming and going after those dreams.

At the age of 43, I decided to start everything from the beginning and reinvent my life. The job that for many years was a symbol of some kind of success… Is not anymore.
Success for me is travelling the world, going outside of my comfort zone, learning new languages and finding out what I’m capable of.

So I decided to take a leap of faith, pack my backpack and see who I can become.

I travel solo, slowly and on a budget. Here, you will find my travel stories, tips and guides on how to experience the world and a little more…

“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.”
- Chinese proverb
