Q: What was your first ever trip?
O: Perhaps, my first trip ever was with my family and we went to Poland to explore the castles. For a little person at that time it was pretty spectacular.
L: My first ever (ever ever) trip was to Germany to visit my aunt and her family. Quite frankly, I don’t remember a thing (I was 8 or so).
Q: What inspires you to travel?
O: I get simply inspired by my friends and the people in my environment. They are my main motivation when it comes to travelling.
L: The people I follow and my good friends who never fail to show me just how much I still haven’t seen in the world. The sheer feeling of discovering something motivates me to travel as much as I can.
Q: What is one thing you always do on a trip?
O: It’s a must to try the local cuisine – in some way it makes you feel like a local. If you haven’t tasted the food, you haven’t been there.
L: I always find a free observation deck or a hill from which I can see the city from above and watch the sunset. Oh, and I definitely buy a fridge magnet to add to my collection.
Q: Where was your most memorable trip?
O: It was my four-month-long trip to South Korea. It was my first time being that far from home but I learned to come out of my comfort zone.
L: Probably my Erasmus+ semester in Budapest. It was one of the longest experiences abroad for me and I managed to visit a few incredible destinations in Europe.
Q: Biggest travel pet peeve?
O: When people spend more time taking photos than exploring new sights. Enjoy the moment and company of your travel buddies.
L: Yes to Odeta’s answer! Also, not doing much but lounging in hotel or beach when travelling. The longest I can tolerate is 1-2 days of complete leisure.
Q: The most favourite travel transport?
O: Trains for trips between the cities as you get to see the most beautiful nature and relax. And planes for longer trips.
L: Trains. I just love the whole atmosphere of trains and how quickly they can get you to your destination. Cars for road trips. Nothing beats a good road trip.
