My name is Kasha Dubaniewicz, and I’m a 30-something Polish Capetonian who, five years ago, decided to move to London to pursue my dreams of writing – and, of course, to travel as much as possible!
Ever since I was young, I have always wanted to travel. No, seriously; here’s the rather embarrassing visual proof:
This thirst for adventure is coupled with my lifelong obsession with books and writing. And, I suppose, that’s how this blog came about.
In 2012, I upped and left from an extremely comfortable life in South Africa to move to London. Since then, I’ve been exploring my new homebase, travelling to new places and writing about it all here.
I love writing about all things related to travel, but, on Lines of Escape, I focus on active/outdoor travel, city breaks and hidden gems. Some of my favourite experiences (so far) have included volunteering at an elephant retirement park in Thailand, spending a month exploring New Zealand in a campervan, watching the sunrise at Uluru, sampling elk soup in a medieval tavern in Estonia, going to my first Glastonbury Festival, experiencing the FIFA World Cup in South Africa and visiting stone circles in Portugal – that predate Stonehenge by a whole 2,000 years!
