My name is Lenka Voříšková and I am a new intern for Spotted by Locals. I was born in the Czech Republic where I spent the biggest part of my life. When I had to choose the field of the study for my bachelor degree I decided on Management of Tourism at one of the Czech universities. I am really glad I made this decision because it helped me discover my passion for travelling.
I had an opportunity to take part in one exchange program and study in Amsterdam for one semester. This was a wonderful chance to experience a new lifestyle, culture and meet people from different parts of the world. On my way back home from Amsterdam I promised myself I’d travel again as soon as a new opportunity showed up. Thus, I became an exchange student in Taiwan. This country was absolutely amazing, full of lovely people and beautiful nature. I fell in love with Southeast Asia during my travels with friends but also, for the first time in my life, as a solo traveler. After that, I lived in Prague for a while, still the most beautiful city I have ever seen.
When I was planning a short trip to Budapest I came across Spotted by Locals. I found this website really helpful and soon I started to use those spotters’ tips even to explore Prague. One year ago, I moved to Copenhagen where I now live and study for my Masters degree in Tourism. When I was searching for an internship I found the articles written by interns for Spotted by Locals. I did not have to think about this opportunity too long. I applied immediately for the position and I have been so excited ever since I received the positive answer. As I write this I have been an intern for one week and still have four months ahead of me. I am looking forward to all the new knowledge, skills and experiences I will get.
