Who am I?

Hi! Thanks for passing by!

I’m Aura, a travel addict who decided to leave everything behind and step into the unknown. I left my advertising career in pursue of a meaningful life, full of adventure, challenges and travel. I am sharing this incredible journey with my boyfriend and Instagram husband, Dan. He is the one behind most of my photos and he always supports my craziest dreams.

After working full time jobs for a few years, in February 2018 we decided to start our journey around Asia. We sold our car, quit our jobs and left 99% of our possessions home. After years of traveling only in Europe, this was our first chance to taste the exotic Asian culture.

We’ve made countless memories along the way, we’ve met so many amazing people and we’re not planning to stop anytime soon. Once you get the travel bug, there’s no turning back.

 


As a way to express myself and share my travel experiences, I’ve decided to start this blog. I want to share with you more than just ” Top X things to do in Y place”.  The internet already has enough of that. This blog is about the journey, the experiences and the feelings you get when traveling.

I always include valuable information and tips & tricks about the destinations I visit. When reading my articles, I want you to know that I did my best to research, experience and try everything I write about.

This blog is about trust and discovery. 

My goal is to share my experiences with this community in a way that you can learn through my stories or mistakes. You’ll find here detailed travel guides about places around the world, couple travel & full time travel articles and even girly posts – all travel related.

Do you have a question or want me to help you plan your travels? Do not hesitate to contact me! I’m always here to help!

 

Q&A

How many countries have you visited so far?

I have been to 39 countries and 3 continents. I love learning about new cultures and meeting local people. For me, each country is a new opportunity to learn more about myself while living like a local.

What was your job before starting to travel full time?

I worked in advertising prior to staring this blog. I had a 9-to-5 job at one of the top advertising agencies in Bucharest, Romania and I loved my job. It was challenging, I met many incredible people and I’ve learnt a lot about marketing and branding. 

Now, I am using all these skills to build this blog and my own brand.

How do you afford to travel full time?

I have saved up money for the last 2 years, together with my boyfriend. Initially, we had no idea what we were going to do with the money but since we were already traveling a lot, we have decided to start our adventure of full time traveling. You can read more about our decision here.

How do you edit your photos?

Over the years, I have developed my own editing style and my own Lightroom presets. I use Lightroom to edit both my blog and Instagram photos and I absolutely love it! Such a game-changer for any aspiring photographer.

Which is your dream destination?

All my life I have dreamed about visiting Peru, more specifically – Machu Picchu. I was fascinated by all the mystery linked to this place since I was little.

Which is your favorite visited destination?

I think Morocco stole my heart forever. The food is incredible and the people are amazing. Loved all the buzz in the medinas. Truly a vibrant, unique place!

Your perfect day would be…

Walking barefoot on the shore of a tropical beach with a mojito in my hand alongside my loved one.

How old are you?

I was born in 1992. šŸ™‚
