Paula is cycling..
When Paula was 14 years old, our aunt said to her: “You will always have ants in your pants.” This was only one of the many weaknesses in character our aunt found in Paula and commented on them in her bossy tone with fitting facial expression. However, concerning this matter our aunt was exactly right. Paula was very young, only 15 years old, when she moved from the countryside to Vienna, the big city, in which she dived into day- and nightlife. Soon after, her next stop was London.
Back in Vienna, Paula finished school off the traditional route, studied economics, and pursued her career. Due to this fact she was again constantly on the move, especially in Southeast Europe, where she gained experience with different people and a variety of cultures for over two centuries.
Paula’s favourite hobbies are fauna and flora as well as travelling.
She could especially foster her passions in the untouched nature of Southeast Europe. Either by observing bears in the forests of the Balkan region, or by searching and photographing wild orchids in the Albanian mountains.
Her journeys are always a mixture of nature and movement. Her favourite past time is going by bike in order to be more connected with nature and landscape. In summer her day trips often end with a supper of mushrooms that she sighted on her way and harvested immediately.
Her husband and daughter share Paula’s love for good, homemade meals, as well as her passion for cats. Although Paula’s cats are common domestic cats which she rescued from animal shelters, they might be the only creatures to whose will Paula – sometimes – submits. No surprise, they ARE charming, but at the same time headstrong and eccentric. Almost like Paula herself.
