Travel blogger, self-proclaimed explorer, and photographer. And this blog is about the places I have traveled to. I started in 2016.
I am the author of all content on this blog, posts, and photographs.
What is this blog about?
Authentic travel experiences. Traveling alone, on low budget and making the best of it. Are you interested how I traveled 8 months with 5500 euros? Than this blog might be for you.
Why do I write?
Because I think I do it pretty well 🙂 and let’s get serious….because I want to encourage
You to seek experiences and adventures over possessions. If my posts will at least make you think to get up and travel or change your life, then my mission has been successful. I will not stop writing, but I will be happy as a clam, and I will buy myself more ice cream that day and the next.
I also write because I want to share my experiences with you. Maybe you dream or plan to travel..I want to show you what it might be like if you do.
How did this adventure start?
With a gut feeling. When I knew I need to start to travel, I felt with every breath that it is the best thing for me in that moment. And it was. I have learned more in 8 months of freely exploring the world than I have learned in years of disciplined living.
My first steps of independent traveler started in March 2013, when I left my corporate job, packed my stuff, took my dog and moved from Romania to Austria.
I had no plan. You don’t need one either.
Getting to know me
I am born in Transylvania in a mixed German/Romanian/Hungarian family and I was more of an explorer than the school- girl they wanted me to be. I always needed fresh air, new stories, new discoveries and my favorite things in the world were the outdoors, my dog and my grandparents. I never liked to stay indoors too long, nor watch Tv, nor must do’s, like: you have to study that, be like that, become that…I left home and lived on my own since I was 17.
I have graduated Journalism and worked 11 years in four different jobs. All these years I have asked myself more and more often: what’s next? I don’t want to do just work for a paycheck all my life.
I like to photograph, write, walk for hours, hand-craft, smile, eat, swim, animals, sleep and traveling…hm, I like that a bit also. If there’s an adventure available, I’ll go for it — and even if it ends up bad, it will make a good story later
Traveling has thought me:
- that happiness looks good on you
- not to judge in haste
- to worry less
- when you travel solo you meet so many people
- to live in the Now
- that experiences grow you more than anything would
- that life is simple and the most important things in life are free
- that the Universe always finds a way

What’s in it for you?
Inspiration! If my craziness inspires you then I will take a bow and thank the Universe for allowing me to be that.
You’ve arrived on my site, maybe because you’re looking for travel tips on a particular destination, or because you think of starting a life of travel and want to know how. Maybe you just want to travel all your life or just a year. Maybe you want to write a blog about it. Regardless the reason
Welcome to my blog!
