Say cześć to Kate! You’ve probably met her if you’ve been on a tour to Poland — or any one of a number of European countries where she couriers.
What have you been up to this summer?
I have used the quarantine and quieter summer to take care of myself, cook at home, and eat clean. I’ve been doing the 10,000 steps a day challenge for 90 days already – and am still going! This time has been wonderful to think about what is really important in life, make new decisions, and to explore my beautiful country — Poland — which has still so much to offer.
What do you normally do when you’re not leading a tour?
I’m a full-time jazz manager so I organise the life and concerts of jazz Artists in Poland and abroad. It is not easy to be at full speed 24/7 so whenever I have a chance, I like to travel and tick off the next destination on my bucket list (which seems to be endless!). Travelling and exploring new places makes me happy.
What is the one thing you never travel without?
Where’s your favourite destination to lead a group?
I should say Poland since I’m Polish but I love to go with groups to other places, especially to Spain in winter, where the temperatures are much more pleasant than in my hometown.
What’s your best travel advice?
Always respect the culture you are exploring. And try not to think about how much your spending in your own currency, it spoils the fun!
What’s your favourite thing about being a courier?
I get to see new beautiful places or go again to those I love! I love that there is always something new to experience with every group and there is nothing better than working whilst travelling.
