Travel Blogger - Viktoria of Chronic Wanderlust

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

I think I was born a traveller and slowly but steadily unwrapped my destiny. A huge step was to go live abroad at the age of 16. My new home was Venezuela, where I lived with two families for a year. Since then my travelling turned into chronic wanderlust.

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

Freedom and a lifestyle choice.

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

Definitely travelling by land! Only this way you can get the distances ad dimensions of a country – forget airplanes, take the bus, train or do a road trip!

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

Listen to audiobooks, talk to strangers and sleep.

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

Tacos in Playa del Carmen, Mexico! My dear friend Janice took me out for dinner and we drove away from the touristy zone and headed into the real city. I wouldn’t have thought about getting food there, but Janice told me the food there was excellent! And I swear – I had my best tacos ever there! I would fly to Mexico just for having dinner there again!

I absolutely love reading about people's travels and adventures! They are just so unique and fun to read about. I really love the dress you are wearing, it is just so cute! I also love the food :) It looks delish! I think food is what makes each country stands out. Thank you for sharing your adventures!

That is so awesome that the tacos were her favorite in Playa del Carmen! I was there on my honeymoon and we drove through the city, and it was AMAZING. We also had tacos (and tequila) on our stay. I was so impressed with the scenery and the location. I haven't been to many places, so it makes me happy that an epic world traveller ranks Mexico high up on her list. :)

@Krystal, wow, so cool you were there too! I think I need to go there just for the tacos based on both of you saying how awesome they are there!

How lovely to read all about Viktoria and her travels. She's totally right, travelling by land is amazing, I love taking the train. I hope she has a great time in Israel and does get to visit Germany and Mexico before the year ends too. I've also got the travelling bug this year and I can't wait for all my adventures :)

It's nice to know a new wanderous soul. I have a question: how do you solve the problem of expense when traveling? Do you have a well-paid job to support your traveling? Or do you have other saving tips to share? Thanks!

Dear Mai! there is couple of factors about travelling and the costs of it. As I'm still in uni (part-time studies on weekends) and the government funds it, there is no "costs" for me going to uni. I work also part-time and do a lot of smaller jobs if I have time. I have no big expenses - still living with my parents, which is annoying sometimes, but saves a lot of money and allows me to travel that much! One of my tips to gather some money is to not spend any change coins. So whatever is in my purse goes into a jar and when it is full I head to the bank and count it - many times there is a small trip in that jar! :)
