Travel dream: New Zealand (south island)
Travels open me to dissimilarity. Travels enrich me with experience and knowledge that I would never get, sitting at home.
Thanks to travels, I get to know cultures, regions and cuisines. Thanks to travelling, I admire the beauty of our planet. I also see the degradation. Pollution, poverty, exploitation.
I would like to have an impact on it. I would like to change myself and others to be a bit better for Planet Earth. Let’s give future generations the chance to enjoy what we can. The first step to change is education and information. The more we know, we read about the problem the more we feel the need to change. Then just act. Step by step, but I want you to believe that your change matters.
During my travels, and now also the emigration, I also discover a psychological aspect. I can see how travels affect the quality of life, the psyche, how it shapes opinions.
The number of difficult life situations, traumatic experiences and emotional contributed to the fact that I started my 6-year psychotherapy at the age of 22 after a nervous breakdown in Portugal.
Thanks to travel, we do not discover the truth about ourselves, but we certainly learn a lot about ourselves, about our skills and preferences.

Travel dream: Tuscany
Who we are?
Initially, we operated as an informal group organizing Travel Meetings on the Way !. From February 26, 2015 to December 2018, we operated as a non-profit association. Our KRS: 545850. And since 2018 Kiwi has returned to the roots, as Twins Team, Monika and Karolina.
Monika a bit further. Karolina locally. 🙂
It’s probably obvious. Kiwi is a symbol of New Zealand. A beautiful, distant, wild country, giving hope for a real adventure.
In fact, the story of this name is quite funny. Thinking about the name, we thought about something close related to travels. Kiwi immediately came to me head, but the opinions were divided. It supposed to be something typically travel. So there were such ideas as: Globtroter (too long), Globus (too obvious). In the end, we chose the name Azymut. Easy, without Polish characters, translatable to English, short. Simply perfect. So what were our surprises as after 3 months from submitting the application, the Court sent a letter that our name is already occupied (despite prior checking). We were given a week to come up with a new name.
And every day Kiwi came back to me when I was thinking about it. Sweet, fluffy Kiwi.
A synonym of my biggest dream. So Kiwi won 🙂
The idea for meetings came spontaneously. In fact, all my (Monika) professional plans, which I was working so diligently collapsed on September 2014.
That day, with a lot of anger and even more energy I decided to do something useful and at the same time interesting. To be honest, I wanted to do meetings with travelers primarily for myself. I love to travel and listen to stories about romote countries. However, I noticed how it works positively on people. I believed that our meetings could bring something to the lives of other people. We can motivate, encourage, and make dreams come true.
I would like someone to come and say that thanks to Kiwi he went on a journey of life.
Currently (since 2018) Kiwi does not organize meetings any more, due to the “relocation” first to Australia and now to Great Britain. However, all the time we do blog, advise and create a sustainable Travel World around us.
In this tab you will find a lot of inspiring content about ecology, sustainable travel but also about my experience as an immigrant, wife of a Mexican 🙂 and student in Australia.
In this category you will find interesting information about life, emigration, studies and travels around Australia.
