J’habite la rue du Départ.
Do you know that unique feeling of lightness while waiting in the airport gate? That gulp of fresh air and liberty (almost overwhelming at first) when strolling through a high-vaulted hall of a railway station, getting ready to set your foot off? The urge to leap through the terminal like Christopher Walken in that old Fatboy Slim music video? Gets me every time. I’m a departure junkie.
I’m also one of the 6 natural wine geeks behind the Druzstvo pop-up up. An ad hoc event born out of friendship and shared passion (for high quality alcohol, electronic music and good company) that has actually been running for some 2 years already. And took us to some of the destinations I cover here. (And even to Brno.)
I’m also in charge of communication at GoOut - dynamic Czech start up making others go out more with its handy and well-tailored culture guide - in Czechia, Poland and Berlin, too. Mission and team you wanna be part of, I can tell you. (Check out our Prague neighbourhoods’ guide if you wanna get the gist.)
I’m also an author, writing features on wine and food for Ambiente, Apetit magazine, Forbes or other lifestyle media.
I’m not - surprise? - an architect.
Nevertheless, I’m pretty sure I’ll build a tomb one day. In the meantime, I use my wanderlust to indulge in as much raw concrete and funeral architecture as I can. Feel free to follow.
