Frequently Asked Questions
How do you afford to travel for so long?
Traveling on a low-budget and choosing a tent over a five star hotel room, local food over fine dining and hitchhiking instead of public transportation.
Here’s a guide where I share the best tips and tricks I use to travel for even less than 10€/Day. I also worked for 7 months straight while living with my mom, which allowed me to save enough money.
How many countries have you visited?
I have only visited 13 countries, but I belive this number has absolutely no meaning. When I was hitchhiking from Germany to Portugal I visited 5 countries in a single day!
The number of countries you visit can’t compare to the number of memories, friends and adventures you experience in those places.
I’m currently in India and I plan on visiting 5-6 more countries in Asia this year.
For how long have you been traveling?
I left my hometown in March 2016 to volunteer through WWOOF. After that I went to Morocco for 2 months followed by a trip to Germany for another 2 months. From September until now, I have travelled on the southwest coast of Portugal and Andalusia, Spain.
I started my 6 month backpacking trip in India on the 7th of December and I’m thinking of traveling to SEA afterwards, until 2018 perhaps.
What is your next adventure?
I’m currently traveling for 6 months in India and SEA might be next.
I have always wanted to visit India, so this is one of my dreams becoming a reality. I want to explore the culture and learn as much I can during this 6 months, living every day as if it was my last.
Volunteering, hitchhiking, camping, hiking, cooking, meditating, are only some of the activities I plan on doing during my trip.
Is it safe for a woman to travel alone like that?
Yes! I know many women who like to travel by themselves while hitchhiking, camping and hiking. Not everyone is a pervert, murderer or a thief like the media wants you to believe.
Iris Veldwijk from Mind Of A Hitchhiker is a perfect example of a solo female traveller who has been to 60+ countries and has hitchhiked in most of them, including Mexico, Turkey and Iran.
If you are not convinced you can always find a male traveling bud in travel companion groups. You can find them on Facebook, Couchsurfing and other travel related websites/forums.
