About me

Behind this blog sits (or most probably wanders around) a girl born in 1985 in a modest Bulgarian-Ukrainian family who she loves immensely. Her name is Irina Sushko.


Hi, my name is Irina! I used to be a software engineer. Now I’m a travel blogger, and still programming from time to time 🙂 Destiny!

I can call myself a person who follows her dreams!

I quit my 9-to-6 job in Feb 2014 and since then I’m travelling around the world. I don’t care if I can’t visit all of the countries. What matters to me is to keep learning from the people I meet, to experience what life can offer and to be a better person every day.

I also love reading, sports, beer, beer glasses, walking, diving, coffee, fruits, hiking… the list is long and it grows with the time (as well as my beer glasses collection).


Many friends ask me how do I afford travelling and not working. My answer is always “if there is a will there is a way“. You can discover the answer of this question in my blog posts 🙂

My mission still remains the same:

  • To inspire you to pack and go explore this diverse world. Yes, you can do it, you don’t need to be a millionaire! 
  • Share my travel stories with you, give some tips (if you allow me). I’m working on a personal project to present these stories in a more visual style.
  • Adapt my lifestyle so it fits my dreams and I continue my mission.

Why I started this blog you can read here: Collect moments not things. I really believe experiences are more valuable than any objects- except my Kindle 😉
