Some how I didn't get a chance to take a photo of this Aussie while we were crossing paths in Slovakia & Poland last summer. I met Dara in Ždiar, Slovakia at the Ginger Monkey hostel. I was going to pop back into Germany for Oktoberfest shenanigans but realized it was a loooong way just to drink overpriced German beer. So I decided to head to Kraków which was only a few hours away via bus (passing through Zakopane).
My main motivation to go to Kraków was to see Aphex Twin live in an old communist steel mill!! It just happens that Dara was also heading to Kraków so I suggested we meetup and go to the concert together. Dara had no idea of what she just signed up for :) Needless to say, she had an eye opening experience.
Long story short, she is super awesome and I am so glad she has decided to stay in San Francisco to look for work
