Polina Sova is a model, photographer, pro traveller and self professed hustler. Careers of modelling and traveller started when she made the move from her native Norway to New York City at age 17. Since then she has worked for brands like Calvin Klein, Vivienne Westwood, Givenchy and Helmut Lang, appearing in magazines like Numero, Elle, V, Vogue travelling to 45 countries whilst managing to live in 11 of them. With a travel portfolio as such, she developed a fine nose for design, high hospitality standard, a keen fanaticism for good food, great restaurants and a weakness for adventure. From jungle hill tribes in Vietnam to the powder soft sands of Seychelles, from riding snow mobiles on Icelandic glaciers to a visit in a cool eatery in Melbourne, Polina lives for it all and is not afraid to tell it.
