I am Ondrej,
Do you like my style?
And what else describes me?
I love wandering
That’s it. I love to be on the move. You can find many stories from my travels in my personal stories or on my blog. I enjoy not knowing where I’ll lay my head tonight, who I’ll meet and what the journey will bring. But then I love coming home and enjoying the presence of my friends and you, the people whose lives I document.
I love cats
You may not believe it, but cats got me into photography. In my childhood we had eighteen of them at a time and I practiced capturing “Bressonian decisive moment” on them. Only I didn’t look for inspiration in the streets of Paris like Bresson, but in our backyard.
I love volcanoes (and coffee)
What kind of combination is that? Well, you’d be surprised. The acidic volcanic soil is ideal for growing coffee trees. And that’s the case with the Acatenango volcano, my favorite volcano. At the top, you can enjoy a divine view, and at the bottom, you can drink coffee straight from the source… I fell in love with volcanoes while reading The Little Prince and they have influenced the places I travel ever since.
