This page is well under construction. It might eventually consist of a series of albums showcasing my previous long-term travel ventures cycle touring or hitchhiking, as well as select smaller projects.

Lublin, Poland (February ’19)
Please note that photos and videos are shared here in higher resolution than some of their counterparts elsewhere on the website, so they may also take a little longer to load 😉
I had to visit the closest Ukrainian Consulate (in Lublin, Poland) in February ’19 in order to renew my residency visa. I went with Nastia. We obviously hitchhiked, and i also took the opportunity to walk around town and play with the camera a bit 🙂
Borzhava (Ukrainian Carpathians, Fall ’18)
I made three trips to the Borzhava Range in Fall ’18, including a solo traverse from Mizhhirya to Volovets’ to test my mind and skill for an eventual trek along the whole Ukrainian stretch of the Carpathians — i love hiking, especially alone! Special thanks to my friend Fuji for helping me sort through the footage i brought back from the mountains <3
“Origins” (Spring/Summer ’18)
Between February and June ’18, Nastia and i spent four months traveling across Europe and around Brazil. We hitchhiked from our (then) home in Lviv, Ukraine to Lisbon, Portugal, then took a plane to Brazil, where we continued hitchhiking for another three months.
The core point was to introduce her to some of my friends and family, some of which i hadn’t seen myself in decades! We also visited a couple of places i hadn’t been to before — most notably, Prudentópolis – PR, a town founded by Ukrainian immigrants, and Paraty – RJ, a historical colonial town surrounded by some of the most gorgeous nature.
I had to visit the closest Ukrainian Consulate (in Lublin, Poland) in January ’18 in order to apply for a residency visa. I took the opportunity to play with an old Jay-tech Video Shot 5 camera i had found in my wife’s storage — it resulted in my first ever attempt at a mini documentary, about the Lublin chapter of the Food, Not Bombs initiative 🙂
