Firstly you are probably thinking I’ve spelt Hello incorrect in the title but alas I have just learnt that is how you say hello in German. This weeks Globetrotter is the lovely Barbara from Barbaralicious.
What I love about Barbara is that she has been on the road since late 2014! I would love to be spending my days travelling the world seeing new places, writing about new places and all the experiences that go along with it. I was really excited to ask her some of these questions to find out more about what she gets up to. I’ve included her blog link and social details at the bottom and make sure you do check them out. Her blog has lots of great travel information on destinations from her travels but how to work and travel to fund your adventures.
So let me hand you over to Barbara ..
My name is Barbara and I’m a digital nomad. I’ve been on the road since November 2014, telling my followers about my life of travels around the world: I’m writing on my blog Barbaralicious and in my books about my experiences as a location-independent online-entrepreneur.
What do you enjoy most about travelling?
I love that I can work from wherever I want to – which is mostly close to the sea. At the same time, I meet so many people with a similar way of life.
Why do you think travelling is important?
Travelling makes people grow. You learn a lot about the world AND about yourself.
What is your favourite photograph from your travels?
Which is your favourite – sun, snow, sea, city, mountains, country?
I love the sun and the sea! I always try to choose a warm country with a coast. I loved Brasil for example and I had a great time in Thailand. But every country is special in its own way. My favourite cities are NYC and Rio de Janeiro
Who do you usually travel with?
I usually hit the road by myself. I even wrote a book about solo travelling called TRAVEL SOLO (you can find it under “my books” on my blog or on Amazon).
If you were to give one piece of travel advice what would it be?
Travel alone at least once in your life. Get out of your comfort zone and learn as much as you can about yourself. You will be surprised 🙂
Tell us the funniest story or a mishap from one of your adventures?
Ok, well… I never told this to anybody until I wrote it in my first book about my trip around the world. I was in El Calafate, a village in south Patagonia, Argentina. I was walking behind some small houses where the dormitories of my hostel were. Suddenly I fell in a cesspit. Yes, I fell in a hole filled with nothing else than shit. It wasn’t funny at all… I was super embarrassed, but everybody loves this story in my book and thinks it’s super funny.
Where is your favourite place that you’ve been to?
I don’t have one. But I enjoyed Koh Lanta, Thailand, and Jericoacoara, Brasil, a lot! At the same time, I’m totally in love with Rio and New York.
Tell us one place/experience on your bucket list?
I want to see all 7 New Wonders of the World. Now that I’ve been to Petra last week, there are only two left: the Taj Mahal and the Great Wall.
