Niki Konkoly

Hi there, thanks for stopping by!

My name is Nikolett (though I’ll most likely introduce myself as Niki). I’m a bilingual freelance writer currently based in Budapest, Hungary.

I come from an art background with a degree in Costume and Performance Design, and I still enjoy creating aesthetically pleasing things and staying in the know about the world of design.

However, my passion lies in storytelling. Ever since I was a kid, I have been telling stories. Stories of surreal dreams, of unbelievable adventures, of disastrous first dates, and of great loves.

And more than anything, I love to turn these stories into witty anecdotes, poignant tales, and useful articles to make people laugh, cry, or to inspire them to travel and live more sustainably, to eat more veggies, and to live life fully while being mindful of the planet and all its living beings. I like to refer to this as conscious hedonism; somewhat of a movement I’m a big advocate of as a longtime vegetarian-turned-vegan.

To find out more, please feel free to read my latest articles or a few of my travel stories, or download my CV.
