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

I truly believe that I have always been a traveler deep down. I believe that we are born explorers. I think like travel is the most natural thing in the world. I can’t possibly think about anything else that makes me a happier human being.

But outside of big words and back to reality, I started seriously traveling in 2005 and super seriously in 2008.

[2] What is travel to you in 10 words or less?

Passion, total addiction, reality and hopefully my future forever.

[3] What is your favorite mode of transportation and why?

I think I like trains and boats the most. I used to really liked flying but after so many years and an uncountable amount of flights I have taken in my life I really became to dislike flying.

Of course, I do not talk about flying by small Cessna above the Himalayas, more about long hauls and commercial airlines.

When I’m already at my destination it doesn’t get better than public transport, no matter how uncomfortable, I just love the experience!

[4] What do you typically do while traveling by plane?

As I have mentioned before I really do not like flying anymore so my main priority is to fall as sleep as soon as possible and waking up after landing.

If for some reason it is impossible I read or deal with my pictures.

[5] What is your favorite travel memory involving food?

I have lots of memories involving food because I love food, I’m a real foodie, ready to travel places strictly for this matter.

Ice creams in Valparaiso in Chile, little Taco hole in the wall in Santa Barbara, searching for dog soup in Seoul and amazing sweets in Iran.

  1. What fun stories! I’m definitely more of a ground transportation person myself–I love going to the airport (oddly), but the whole losing luggage/ tiny seats/ not so great food thing of airline travel can get old quickly! P.S. Marysia is way braver than me: there is NO WAY I am ever touching a snake of any kind voluntarily!

  2. Oh how I wish I had traveled more in my youth! I try to get my kids to travel as often as we can afford for them to. I want them to experience all this world has to offer. My best travel ever was to Costa Rica, I would love to go back! Food there was AMAZING and I agree – food is a big deal to me as well, I also love food and I feel it is a big part of visiting other places, the authenticity of the food, the culture, which food is a part of … great now I am hungry! LOL Great post lovely photos!

    1. @Joely, I have only been to Costa Rica once for only a day but really liked it, so i am hoping to get back there in the future. I hope you do too!

  3. Wow, what a traveller! I thought I liked to travel, but Marysia puts me to shame. I’d happily pick up that snake, but could not handle dog soup! Oh dear! Hope Marysia gets home without any problems for Christmas this year! 🙂

    1. @Christina, I want to hear a little more about dog soup as well. I had dog about 20 years ago in China but didn’t know I was eating it until after the meal. It was tasty but I told my friends I didn’t want to eat it again as I would not be able to go home and look my dog in the eye!

  4. that sounds like a crazy next few weeks! 🙂 I’m probably a newbie when it comes to travel blogging, and I am now just hearing about TBEX. I feel like boats would be my favorite mode of transportation too if i didn’t get sea sick.. bc i love being near water/

  5. What an amazing life! I love that you still manage to make it home every Christmas. You must have a wonderful family as well!

  6. Great interview, Andi & Marysia! Marysia, your photos are gorgeous, it looks like you’ve been to seem fascinating areas — and like you have many more to come! I”ll go check out your blog. 🙂

  7. She sure gets around! Are her travels funded by her blog? What an amazing life she leads! And wonderful photos! I’ll certainly be checking into her blog!

  8. I’d love to see some of these beautiful places. I’d also love to travel by train. I think it would be a beautiful ride.

  9. I admire Marysia that she can globe trot. I’ll have to go and read about her adventures. I think I’ll skip over the dog soup though. Couldn’t do it! Don’t want to hear about it!

  10. Wow that sounds so exciting I love the plans for the next few weeks, travelling is such an amazing experience, really nothing beats seeing and exploring a new place. Have a wonderful Christmas at home as well

  11. Wow!! I wish I could travel more. I’m not one to like to leave home for a long time though. A week away every few years is good enough for me.

  12. How funny to hear that travelers hate flying. I love to fly, but never do it enough. My husband travels all of the time for work and can’t stand to fly. Thanks for sharing!
