About Life-medicine-travels-by Krystyna Knypl / @mimax2's Blog
I was born in Podlasie, eastern Poland, grew up in Warsaw, a graduate of the medical university in Warsaw (1968), received my PhD in cardiology (1974) and specialized in internal diseases.
After many years of the medical practice, I felt more and more that I can create larger written forms than typical instructions for my patients that they should take their tablets three times a day.
I decided to follow such famous predecessors as Arthur Conan Doyle or Mikhail Bulgakov and emigrate from the land of medicine to literature and journalism. This step resulted in more than 550 articles and 14 books written by me.
I traveled around Europe and Americas. I also visited Asia, Africa and Australia. I am planning to take a trip around the world.
Being a supporter of the third time lucky principle – after many years of a love affairs with medicine and writing I decided to take up photography. My passion started out photographing my loved one and after a few years I decided to also pursue other topics such as everyday life in Poland, travel, nature and medical conferences worldwide.
Since 2012 I am the editor in chief of Gazeta dla Lekarzy, nonprofit magazine created by doctors and their families.
I am wife of Francis, the mother of Kate and the grandmother of Helen and Henio.
