City you call home: Steyr, Austria but deep in my heart there’s my hometown Chelm, Poland

Can you tell us a little about yourself? I’m from a small town in Poland called Chelm. I used to live in London but in 2016 I decided to move to Austria closer to my home country. I workfor an international catering company and during my free time, I love to travel! Most of the time my travels are spontaneous cause no plan is the best plan. I’m passionate about photography, living a healthy vegetarian life and spreading good vibes.
