Hej, I am Ktinka

I am in my mid-30s, and after some stints in Leipzig and Berlin, I have been living in Zurich for almost five years. During the day I work as a Digital Product Manager for a publishing house. At night and on the weekends, I blog.

After spending a large part of my twenties going to parties and bars, I now enjoy spending more and more time at home – reading, cooking, hosting dinners or just hanging out with my cat and my boyfriend – but I also enjoy traveling to places near and far. This blog is my playground where I share pictures and thoughts from my everyday life and my travels.

I am slightly obsessed with Tokyo and with the Mediterranean. So trips to those two places will be featured a lot on this blog.

While I don’t want to be another blog pushing you to buy stuff, some of my contents may contain affiliate links to products that I like, mainly books, or occasional sponsored posts – however, all opinions posted remain my own, and all collaborations have to fit into my overall idea of this blog. I will mark every post that is sponsored or contains affiliate links accordingly.

If you feel like working with me, contact me via mail@ktinka.blog or find out more over here.

I took almost all photos that appear on the blog myself. If I use other peoples pictures, I will mark them accordingly. If you are interested in using any of my pictures, please contact me.
