A girl who loves to travel the world and always trying to find unique places wherever she goes to.
Why do you travel and look for adventures?
Travel is one of the few things which make me really happy. It all comes from my family.That is the way I grew up. We would rather spend money on adventures than materialistic things, because those memories will stay with you forever.
What kind of adventures do you look for when you travel?
Depends on the destination I am going to. Very soon I am travelling to Siberia to see lake Baikal during winter. It is gonna be challenging in all the ways. But if it is worth it, I am always up for a challenge.
What’s your go-to travel hack?
Good company makes a huge difference. Few of my last trips happened with people I haven’t seen in 10-15 years and we were in touch through Instagram only. But it turned out to be an amazing experience.
Got any gear you can’t travel without?
I always do a research on places I wanna visit before I travel. So that I already will have an idea of things I wanna see before I reach the destination.
What destination are you eager to go back to?
Mexico. I loved the country. And I was also amazed by Chichén Itzá. After coming back from there I was that impressed that I chose Maya civilization as my graduation topic at University.
How do you stay safe when you’re travelling?
I always talk to locals and trying to find out what is safe to do in the country and what is not.
What’s the best way to experience a destination like a local?
Speak to locals:) Or else if I go to a destination where people don’t speak English much, I find and Instagram profile of someone who lives there and will try to find details in advance.
What’s your favourite word in another language?
Vida (I actually wanna learn Spanish)
When and where are you next travelling?
In 10 day I will be in Russia (Siberia). Russia is massive and there are plenty of places to visit. And if you have a chance to see lake Baikal during winter, you definitely shouldn’t miss it. That’s gonna be a lifetime experience. I am sure:)
