Traveler Tuesday – Marysia of My Travel Affairs

Traveler-Tuesday
Marysia of My Travel Affairs calls herself the The Luckiest Girl in the world and if you read her blog for any length of time you will see that her positivity and enthusiasm is contagious. This Polish dynamo will not be pinned down. She has studied law, fashion, loves art. She can jetset and backpack in the same week! She admits to being a little OCD, but I say never stop going!

[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 make 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 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 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 too 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.

[6] Where to next?

I’m currently in Tel Aviv for next few weeks, than Athens for TBEX. Home at least for a week, than Milan to visit a friend and Sri Lanka till just before Christmas.

I have this Golden Rule in life that I’m always back home for Christmas no matter what!

And I must admit that this rule is often a cause of some crazy travel stories.

Thanks Marysia!

    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!

    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! 🙂

      @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!

    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/

    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!

      @Susan, I know, that one was interesting to me as well, I would have never associated ice cream with Chile!

    I think it is funny that she doesn’t like to fly but is a traveler. But whatever, she manages 🙂

    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!

    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.

    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!

      @Jen, I love to fly! But then again I am only 5 foot so I fit in the seat way more than most!
