Hi, I am Erika. I love Photography and Travel, not necessarily in this order. My journey started in 2012 when I left my office job and decided to travel and see the World. I have visited over 60 countries on 5 continents and still counting. 


Since 2012 I have visited over 250 UNESCO World Heritage Sites and have documented every single visit. The current World Heritage List includes 1092 cultural and natural sites around the world considered to be of outstanding value to humanity. Approximately 20 new places are inscribed on the list every year.


With many other beautiful travel destinations, which are not declared as World Heritage Sites (yet), my Travel Bucket List became endless and will keep me busy until the end of my life:)


This website is dedicated to photographs taken during my travel, and I hope you will enjoy seeing Our Beautiful Planet through my lens!

I am based in Prague, Czech Republic (when I am not travelling) and working on various photo projects. 


Services Offered
