Why did you start travel blogging? How long have you been doing it?
I started a few months ago, because I was looking for something to do and one day it came to me. A lot of friends and family always asked me about travels, where they should go, and what they should do.
As I loved telling them about where I went and the things I did, I came up with the idea to start blogging. Plus, I’m always looking for new countries and new adventures.
Name your top 3 most memorable places?
Tokyo, Whistler and Jasper.
What’s the best thing about being a travel blogger?
I’m doing what I love and found something that’s fulfilling, and I get to travel!
And the worst?! (if there is one)
It’s hard to promote myself, and lots of analytics, that I’m still learning.

Because I try to share something different.
What’s the most unusual thing you’ve eaten on your travels?
When I was in Tokyo, I ate these little crabs. You had to eat the whole thing and it tasted as chips!

I’m going to Holbox, Tulum and Playa del Carmen, and then to shanghai and Japan. I’ll hopefully travel to Costa Rica before the new year.
