About me

I am Joanna – just a normal chick from Poland who rides her bicycle in places, mostly solo. I travel slowly to uncover hidden gems and secret stories wherever I go. In particular, I am fascinated by the countries of the New East (the Balkans, Eastern Europe, Russia and Central Asia) and Scandinavia. On this blog, I share my stories from the road and practical advice for bicycle travellers and solo female travellers.
