Why Travel is Amazing & How it started

My name is Lucia, and I am from Slovakia- a small country in the heart of Europe. In elementary and secondary school I studied in my hometown. At that time I did not know much about traveling, but I attended the college in our capital city. 

Over the summer holidays, my friend and I tried to volunteer in another country. We went to Belgium for three weeks where we helped with a variety of work at the asylum center. For me, it was the most amazing experience in my life. After college I wanted to work in this area, but this didn't work. I've been working in another field, but the first experience of having the opportunity to learn a new country and people was very enjoyable for me. 

I decided to continue down the traveling route with my good friend. We started traveling lightly. We first visited the surrounding coutries - Hungary, The Czech Republic, and Poland. We have found that we are doing well on the roads. Since then we have completed several trips to different countries. Travel has become a passion for me. I always look forward to discovering a new country, meeting interesting people, and having great experiences. Those beautiful memories will remain with me forever.
