About @Vic_IV

Hello, fellow travelers! I must say I was a Virtual Tourist member for 16 years. After that wonderful website had been closed down, I was a member of TravBuddy for more than a year.
The fellow travelers I had met on the Internet were a part of my life while communicating through those wonderful websites. I have been blessed to have each and every one of them in my life. Keep well, fellow travelers!
I have worked as a school teacher of English and German in Luhansk an Severodonetsk. To complement my humble teacher's salary, I also worked as a part-time translator/interpreter at a number of factories and companies in Luhansk. I used to give private English lessons as well. Then I thought, "Let's call it a day", and quit my teacher's job. I ventured to apply for a nice job, and, as a result, I was hired as a secretary at the local office of the International Committee of the Red Cross, where I gladly worked for seven years, which influenced on the amount of my present pension greatly.
My wife and I are IDPs (internally displaced persons) in Severodonetsk, the new center of Luhansk region. We left Luhansk in late November 2014. In March 2022, we had to leave our second home in Severodonetsk and became Ukrainian war refugees. We are staying at our friends' old apartment in Poland now.
There are cities I have visited several times, and they attract me more and more. Most of all, I have traveled about Ukraine having visited half of its regional centers and lots of smaller towns and cities. All in all, I have visited thirteen countries outside Ukraine, staying mostly in smaller towns and cities. Fingers crossed!

  • Hobbies:

    traveling, vexillology, photography, studying English and German

  • Favourite places:

    I always had so many impressions of my trips to different countries. We managed to visit so many beautiful places and numerous historic sites. Paying a visit to a new place in a European country is great. There are places I feel like revisiting to bring back some happy memories.

  • Elsewhere: Visiting Ukraine
Life is meant for good friends and great adventures.
