My name is Richard Dettmar, a content writer for Atlys, and I fell in love with travel in 2019. My first big travel adventure was to China. There I learned a lot about the Chinese culture and its people. The experience has inspired me to keep traveling the world and venture where few people can. I enjoy exploring the unknown streets of tourist destinations, documenting my hiking adventures, and eating all kinds of exotic foods! I think it's important that everyone experiences something extraordinary at least once in their lifetime, and I believe Atlys is the first step to this experience.
