Growing up a “traveler” meaning I was an Army brat and I went where they sent my father, traveling has always been part of my DNA. I’m always seriously impressed with bloggers/travel writers who made a decision to be a full-time, nomadic traveler, made plans and totally went for it. Not only that, once they figured out how to do it, they shared the “secret” with others. Which is the case of Nina of Where in the World is Nina? She was a solo traveler for 4 years and now travels the world with her vlogger boyfriend hopping from one country to another living the life.

Let’s meet Nina!

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

I’ve been abroad since 2011! I saved up a bunch of cash, bought a one-way ticket, and learned how to work abroad and remotely… I never looked back.

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

Adventure and nature loving slowish traveler. I like getting to know places for more than a few days and try to be as local as I can by living in a particular place for a few months or more. I’m not so much of a backpacker anymore (although I will still use a backpack) I live on a more comfortable budget these days but I definitely don’t need luxury.

[3] What do you love most about traveling?

Learning! I’m in the most exciting classroom every day, everywhere I go.

[4] What do you dislike about traveling?

The actual traveling part. Ha. I hate plane and bus rides…
Sometimes they can be fun and adventurous but I’m a very fidgety person and being in one place like that for long periods of time—I hate it.
Although, road trips are my fav!

[5] Why should people travel?

To learn. We are all fed information about places around the world when in reality, that piece of information is just a spec. There’s so much more to the world.

Aside from learning about the world, wait for it… I’m about to get cheesy…. you also learn a bit about yourself. Yes, I went there. It’s so lame but it’s actually true! Especially if you travel solo for a bit. Trust me, I solo traveled for four years. I think I’m pretty damn good company now!

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

Ah, after recent events, I wish I could have hung out with Anthony Bourdain over some tapas or something.

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

My must-have travel gear is a sarong, a dry bag, and a solar powered battery charger. Always!

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

Ah, not much of a foodie. But even after living in Thailand for many years, I still LOVE Thai food. Another fav is tapas, the Spaniards understand how to feed those who can never make up their mind…*me*

[9] What’s one location on your bucket list?

Antarctica!

[10] Do you have a piece of advice for bloggers starting out?

Only do it if you would do it regardless of money, “fame” (?), and “perks.”
None of those things are guaranteed and it takes a crazy amount of work to “make it” (even a little a bit.) So make sure this is something that you love and would do, no matter what.

    I’ve so envious of people who can just pack their lives up and travel. There are many places I would like to see for some of the reasons Nina mentioned, to learn about new places, people, and cultures.

    I’ve always wanted to travel on many places but it’s just too hard for me to keep up. But I hope one day. I like to learn from traveling too.
