Hi, my name is Florian. I am currently living in Nuremberg, Germany and sporadically in Bratislava, Slovakia.
I graduated in mechanical engineering in 2010 and I’ve been working for different companies in the automotive sector for one decade by now, with the focus on electronics and mechanical testing.
In spring 2019 I was an enrolled language student at the Comenius University in Bratislava.
I’ve started this (experimental) blog-project in January 2019 out of sheer curiosity and for the purpose of language learning (Slovak and English in particular, my native language is German) plus enhancing my writing skills, but my intention was originally to create a personal blog and a platform for small, inspiring stories with the main focus on personal development and social activities.
I visited Eastern and Western Europe quite a lot the recent years, and some of my travel-experiences will deliver a kind of scaffolding for the core areas of this blog-project.
However, this website should not be confused with an adventure or “pure” travel blog – the main focus will be in any case about Slovakia, the Czech Republic and Poland, hence countries where a West Slavic language is spoken.
In addition, I wanted to integrate elements of Engineering that blend in with the traveling topic or include noteworthy background-stories. Especially this brings the most fun to write about, but I will outsource that to a different website in the near future probably.
This website has no commercial purpose, and I make no profit from it.
Sidenote: Due to the very nature of this blog, content is subjected to occasional rectifications and text-improvements
