Know Thy Traveler is an initiative to show the different perspectives of travelers from different genders, economic backgrounds and nationalities. I posed questions to all of them to gain an understanding of where they are from and how traveling has affected their lives.
Digvijay Chauhan – Our first feature is from someone I found online that is showing an inspirational message that traveling and seeing the world is healing. His videos are well made and his Instagram is filled with beautiful photos of nature and the people he has encountered. I posed a series of questions for him to gain his perspective on traveling and the affect on his life
Nikki Lee – Our second feature is Nikki Lee. I came across Nikki from one of the black travel groups on Facebook as she had posted one of her YouTube Vlog’s. Her videos are well put together, detailed and she gives a lot of details for anyone aspiring to travel to the destinations. Her interest to go to multiple continents and experience different cultures is a breath of fresh air.
Octavian Alexandru Pitigoi is an video editor that I met online recently. His videos are beautiful, showing you a different look of the city and the people that live there. It feels like a natural look rather than a superficial view of a city that most people capture. I’m honored to have him featured in the Know Thy Traveler series.
Marina Strasser is an Austrian born World Traveler. I came across her blog where she took the approach of interviewing people from all over the world and asking them in depth questions about their life, their home country and Stereotypes that people hold about their homeland. I find her style to be interesting and glad to feature her.
Nathalie Segelborg is a Swedish blogger that I came across and I especially like how she has a correlation between traveling and mental health which I strongly believe in. I’m glad to have her apart of the Know Thy Traveler series and to hear her perspectives.
Radhika Changoiwalla is an Indian blogger I came across by chance after finding her article about Berlin and her take on the city. I always feel like the city isn’t talked about enough as a city to visit in Western Europe so it was nice to see her perspective on the city and why she likes it (Click here for her article). I’m happy to introduce her to my readers.
Jennifer R. is a French woman I was lucky enough to meet while I was traveling in Lisbon. We happened to be part of the same walking tour and spent a couple of days together which allowed for us to get to know each other very well. I found her life perspectives to be interesting and overall she’s a great woman. I’m proud to introduce such a special person to my readers.
Jessica Almeida is an Canadian blogger/vlogger that I found through an Article talking about her experiencing moving abroad for an internship. I appreciated as a reader how honest she was with her experience and it gave an insight as to what it’s really like to move to another country and possible hurdles they may experience. I’m proud to have her involved in the Know Thy Traveler
Leah Goodwin is an American blogger/vlogger. She is someone who was like myself that stumbled into solo traveling and has grown from her experiences of going to multiple continents, meeting new people and experiencing different cultures. I’m proud to have Leah part of the Know Thy Traveler series.
Katerina is an Latvian-born Travel Blogger who is currently living in Greece. I came across her blog while on Facebook and enjoyed her article talking about her experience in Lisbon. It’s my pleasure to have her involved in the Know Thy Traveler series.
Joy is an American travel enthusiast and new blogger whose personality matches her name. She went from a fellow traveler that I knew remotely to someone that I traveled with and now I consider her a good friend. I’m proud to have her involved in the Know Thy Traveler series.
Kiersten is a travel coach and entrepreneur that is originally from California but now lives in Spain. I came across her in the travel groups on Facebook and read more into her story as I’m always fascinated with an American living abroad. I’m proud to have her part of the Know Thy Traveler series.
