I have a sister and growing up in a military family we did plenty of travel together, but we have different styles and I can’t imagine traveling with her all the time like Matilda of The Travel Sisters does with her sister – I am super impressed! Matilda has traveled to over 40 countries and all 7 continents. On the blog she writes with her sister, she shares tales and tips from her travels and as well as travel hacking by earning miles and points.
Let’s meet Matilda!
 When and how did you become a traveler?
I loved the idea of travel since I was a kid. After a month-long college backpacking trip to Europe, I loved the reality of it too. I was hooked immediately and travel became a top priority.
 What kind of traveler do you define yourself as?
I would define myself as an enthusiastic and curious traveler. As far as travel style though I don’t fit into just one category – my travels range from budget to luxury and everything in between depending on the destination.
 What do you love most about traveling?
I love everything! I enjoy experiencing places I read about in person, meeting new people and the lack of routine.
 What do you dislike about traveling?
I don’t really dislike anything about traveling- I am just grateful I get to travel.
 Why should people travel?
If people are fortunate enough to be able to travel, it is a great education. It will teach you a lot about other cultures but also yourself.
 What famous person would you like to travel with?
My sister or husband is my preferred travel buddies since we are travel compatible but if I had to choose someone famous I would choose Waldo- you never know where you’ll end up.
 Travel essentials – 3 things you always travel with
Smartphone, scarf and antibacterial wipes
 If you’re a foodie, what’s your favorite food city? Do you have a restaurant recommendation?
My favorite food city is Taipei. I don’t have a restaurant recommendation since I prefer to eat at one of the many night markets. The food is cheap, delicious and you can try a little bit of everything.
 What’s one location on your bucket list?
Hard to pick just one but South Georgia Island and the Arctic are towards the top.
 Do you have a piece of advice for bloggers starting out?
It depends on your goals but a good rule of thumb is write about things you are passionate about and learn SEO. Launching and maintaining a blog is more time consuming than you’d think so be persistent and patient.
