About Katerina

"There was a perfectly square historical plaza enclosed by arcades on all its sides at the place where I grew up. The town was surrounded by hills covered in deep forests, offering freedom and adventure. As far as I remember, the contrasting combination of organized geometry and disorganized wilderness is where my curious personality of a modern explorer was born."
