About me and the blog / Collaboration
W Swoim Żywiole (In My Element) is a tongue-in-cheek blog of a vagabond. Originally from Poland, I set off a few years ago in search of a place I could call home. Since then, I have been exploring the world, learning about life, and collecting experiences. I lived in the Land of Midnight Sun and a Thousand Lakes, Finland, where I hunted the Northern Lights, enjoyed wilderness of Lapland, slept in a tent 400 kilometres above the Arctic Circle, and ate terrible Finnish sausages in a company of reindeers. Three years ago, I changed cold Scandinavian forests for modern buildings of tropical Singapore, where I live and work to date. Southeast Asia is definitely not my final destination. Traveling is my passion which I follow whenever I get a chance. As a nature lover, I hunt for secluded and intact lands, what nowadays is a challenge. I promote ecotourism, i.e., responsible traveling and conservation of environment.
I started the blog in October 2014. It focuses mostly on Finland and Southeast Asia, but you will find here stories from all over the word – Scandinavia, India, and Caribbean, to begin with. I write about my adventures and expat’s live with humor (often black), I play with stereotypes. The travel posts usually include a (serious) practical part that provides information, tips and advice.

I run the blog in Polish and I do not intend to explore any other linguistic territories at the time being. I enjoy playing with words and my mother tongue is the only one that gives me enough freedom and space for it.
I am interested in any form of collaboration, but I especially value those allowing me to expand my readership. I will gladly share my photos and articles on certain conditions. I can write new articles, including reviews. I will be happy to promote interesting regions and attractions. What limits me is respect to my readers – I will not promote things I am not interested in myself
