Fun fact about you:
I am was a timid girl growing up, but I become my different self when I’m on the stage singing.
I love reading about metaphysics, philosophy, and universal mysteries.
I understand more languages than I can speak. ( I speak 3 languages fluently, 4 others in beginners level.)
What do you think has been essential to your success as a travel blogger?
Connections are good, but watch out for people who are not getting the best out of you. Avoid politics, just do your own thing.
What was something that surprised you about blogging?
It surprised me how many people were inspired by it, and how my goal of encouraging my friends not to delay the dream of seeing the world is slowly happening. It is a very powerful tool that we bloggers should know how to use it responsibly.
If you had to describe your blog in 6 words or less, what would you say?
Journal. Budget Travel Tips. Easy Going.
Who or what inspires you?
You mean, to travel? I don’t know, maybe my father. I used to asked him questions how is it like out there at the places he went to for work? How is it like riding an airplane? But I remember, every time I watch TV or movies from the other side of the world, I always think “how is it like to be out there?” or “How do they live there?”. I think it’s natural for us to be curious, it’s just that, I know we are all different and I wanted to understand how and why we are different.
What is your all-time favorite bucket list item (of yours or someone else’s)?
Well, I don’t really have a bucket list. I just wanted to see beautiful places and if time permits me, I go where I feel like going at that time. I just want to live like life is worth living without money’s worth.
If you weren’t doing anything related to travel, what would you be doing in your free time?
I should be singing. That is really what I wanted to do.
What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?
My grandfather once said to me after returning from a failed mission in Italy, “Next time you do something again, make sure that you really want to do it…” because at that time, I did what I did because I have to do it and that made me fail.
Thanks, Lyndsay, for sharing your time and thoughts with us!
