A few words about me
Why I travel…
Hello! My name is Rus, a travel-and-adventure-obsessed adrenaline-junkie New Yorker, originally from Eastern Europe (Belarus). I moved to the USA at 18, went to college and graduate school here and worked in finance for several years. I have been traveling pretty much my whole life – exploring new countries, cultures, people, landscapes, flora and fauna.
Life is too short!
It would be a total waste spending it working in an office cubicle or spending summers at the same summer house or going to the same lame beach or same ski mountain. I believe that traveling enriches you beyond any job, or college, or TV – you get to experience the most incredible things, witness amazing landscapes and cities with your own eyes, come face to face with rare animals, see otherworldly flowers bloom, sample the world’s most exotic cuisines, and meet hundreds of new friends from different countries and ways of life.
Once in a while I stop and reflect on all my experiences and then spin the globe, re-pack my bags and go again toward new horizon, checking off new destinations of my ultimate bucket list.
