I like how you format questions and answers Lucas, therefore I’ll do the same.
What’s your name?
Piotrek. I like number π (pi; 3,14…) as much as I enjoy trekking, that is why my name is pronounced π-o’trek. Mind that the “pi-” sound is more like in Greek “pita” than in English “pie” .
Where are you from?
How long have you been away from home?
I’m more or less six months in Poland and six months away every year.
What do you do?
For about ten years I was working as a tour manager, working a lot in Italy with Polish tourists. This experience helped me start my business focused on improving the relationship between tourism professionals and travellers via mobile tech.
Where are you currently?
At this moment I’m enjoying summer months in Poland, going around my hometown to places like Kraków and Wrocław.
Where are you going?
When the summer here is over, I’m going to Australia or Japan.
What has been memorable for you so far?
My first overseas trip to Japan in 2011 opened my eyes to the idea of a grand adventure. During that time I met several people, who made travelling a key element of their lifestyle and I decided to follow their lead. Eventually, I decided to connect it with online business and start the digital nomad path in February 2018.
Will you go home anytime soon?
I’m “home” right now, but it is more my parent’s home than mine. The plan is to sell it as soon as possible, so they can be more location independent too.
What have you learnt during your time as a nomad?
That future is not evenly distributed, and we can help to make a difference. Volunteering and then working in cafes and coworking spaces enabled me to experience firsthand everyday life in different countries. The money we use to pay for local infrastructure, but also our positive attitudes and vibes are influencing people in their environment. It’s a responsibility that is best approached with mindfulness.
