2018 starts with a Greek goddess, travel blogger and tourism professional. Chrysoula of Travel Passionate is based in Athens, Greece. A writer after my own francophile heart, she writes in both English and French for her travel blog focusing on luxury travel around Europe.

She’s traveled extensively throughout Europe for the past 25 years and has no intention of slowing down. She loves to explore the local culture and gastronomy of the places she visits.

Let’s meet travel blogger Chrysoula!

[1] When and how did you become a traveler?

I have been traveling since I was 4 years old. Every summer I would visit my grandparents on two different Greek islands. It was a long 10-hour journey by boat to get there but I was always happy to do it. At the age of 9 my mum took me at my first trip abroad to Italy.

[2] What kind of traveler do you define yourself as?

I started as a mid-range traveler and now I have turned into a luxury traveler. I have never traveled with a backpack or stayed in a hostel. I always preferred to travel comfortably than spending my money on drinks and expensive clothes.

[3] What do you love most about traveling?

I love everything about traveling but most importantly learning about new cultures, trying different types of food and seeing how other people live.

[4] What do you dislike about traveling?

I am not fond of packing. Although the last years I have managed to pack light it takes me forever to decide what to take with me. I also don’t like leaving my husband and dog behind.

[5] Why should people travel?

People travel for different reasons but I think that through traveling you open your horizons, you learn about different cultures and ways of living and ultimately I think you become a better person.

[6] What famous person would you like to travel with?

I would love to travel with my favorite singer Robbie Williams. He has an incredible sense of humor and it will be a great company to travel with.

[7] Travel essentials – 3 things you always travel with

I always travel with my camera, my mobile, and laptop.

[8] If you’re a foodie, what’s your favorite food city? Do you have a restaurant recommendation?

I love Italian food and wine. I always eat at La Prosciutteria when I am in Italy. They serve Italian meats and cheeses which you can accompany with Italian wine. They have restaurants in many Italian cities like Rome, Florence, Milan, and Naples.

    I agree with her that money is better spent on a comfortable bed than expensive clothes.

    I agree with her about Italian food. I could eat pizza there every day for a year if I had the chance!

    I would love to learn how to travel light. When I first started taking tours abroad, it seemed like I took the whole house with me. Ha ha. Seriously, I hope I get to have more chances to travel this year too.

    These interviews are always so interesting! Luxury travel is my kind of traveling. I love to eat good food, stay in nice resorts or hotels and enjoy the luxury while I can. I will definitely have to check out her site. I would love to go to Greece as its been on my list for a while.

    Iceland is also on my bucket list! I’m more of a mid-range traveler, though, unlike this blogger. I prefer to be able to bring back nice momentos and spend my money on fun excursions than an expensive hotel room. Unless you count food as a luxury expense – in which case, I also spend more on that.
