“For many people it’s difficult to take the step and go travelling. For me, it’s difficult to stay at one place for a long time. The first time I travelled on my own was when I was 3 years old. I was visiting my father in Japan. One of the first adventures I remember, was when I was stuck in the elevator of a building. I was totally on my own, had no idea which floor I was on and I was too short to push the buttons. The second time I went travelling, was when I was 8. I went to visit my aunt in Paraguay for three months, once again on my own. At such a young age, I had already found out what travel can be, how much life there is to experience. In my twenties, I also began to travel as a yoga teacher. For two years, I travelled with Sadie Nardini, one of the best yoga teachers in the world. She shared the same adventurous spirit as me. We went to Australia, Indonesia, the Philippines, Japan, Europe, everywhere. Sadie is so well-connected that it was easy to find yoga schools and retreats to teach at. We were travelling the world making money and doing what we love doing. But after 12 years of teaching yoga, I was burned out from it. It was time for something new. That’s why I got into user experience design. That doesn’t mean my travelling life is over. I might move to Europe or to Singapore in the future. The adventure of travelling has become addictive.”
