I’m an enthusiastic traveller and curious storyteller; always looking for the unusual, unconventional and unique side of places, lifestyles, and traditions. As a freelance travel journalist, my desire is to help people see the world from an unbeknownst angle. To understand and accept it in its wholeness and complexity.
My interests as a woman (female traditions, interior design, women’s stories, coffee and afternoon tea) are a small part of all things that make me intrigued. I have written about solo female travel, the world most colourful religious festival in the world but also about offroad trips with a Land Rover. Recently, my writing took a sharp curve and opinion pieces started to pour out like an avalanche.
For me, freelance travel writing is not a way to make money but a chance to tell stories about places and people I believe the world should know about. Some of my published works as a freelance travel writer are listed below. I also do copywrite for digital marketing agencies and businesses.

Traveling Ancient Roads
Rovers Magazine, USA
The weekend of June 24-26, 2016, marked the 10th anniversary of the Land Rover Enthusiasts of Bulgaria. The club counts more than 60 members; at most every event they share their passion for off-roading with their entire family—including babies. The core values of the club revolve around our comfort with family participation and the shared experience of life with our Land Rovers. Most of our member’s vehicles include Discovery 300 Tdi’s from the late 1990s, or the Td5’s of the early 2000s, but we also enjoy the presence of more recent Discovery 3’s and, of course, our beloved Defenders. Whereas virtually all Land Rovers in North America have V-8 petrol engines, most of our members run the classic diesels.
The gift of the past
Get It Magazine, Australia
Not many of Perth’s visitors head to Guildford. Although the town is the gateway to the Swan Valley, WA’s oldest wine region, it’s often overlooked. Finally recognised for its historical significance and heritage beauty, the little boutiquesque town might get busier next summer.
Some of my freelance travel writing and guest posts have been published on the following websites:
I Bless the Rains Down in Africa – Rovers Magazine
Three days after New Year’s Eve we arrived at Savanna Private Game Reserve in the early evening. The camp looked quiet. “Most of the guests are out in the bush on a safari,” they told us. We were welcomed with smiles and a refreshing drink.
The Saga of the Red Lord – Rovers Magazine
Enthusiasts have swooned over David Bache’s styling of the Range Rover Classic since its inception in 1970. Although North America saw a handful of grey-market imports, the two-door Classic remains a rare icon. Ah, but if you’re lucky enough to be in Europe, you find aficionados can still enjoy the visual beauty and tactile driving experiences of the original.
23 Beautiful Reasons to Visit Morocco – YTravel Blog
Travelling to Morocco is not cheap but every penny spent there is totally worth it. The country has a lot to offer – beautiful scenery, tasty food, hospitable people, and quality and simplicity of life that is rare in our days. These are the things that (in my eyes) make Morocco one of a kind travel experience.
My Favorite Cities & Fjords Along the Norwegian West Coast – Mapping Megan
Before my trip to Norway, I thought of the country as a fairy tale land that although travel guides insisted was real, seemed to me to be fiction. And sure enough, you really have to be there to believe it.
6 Exotic Places to Travel for Christmas and New Year – Colours of Nature
Christmas is the most magical time of the year. Spending the New Year’s Eve in a new exotic place is a great way to start the next 12 months cycle in a mood of adventure and discoveries. In the past 10 years, I have been celebrating December 31st at many different places and this year will not be different. It’s my way of saying – Hey, Universe, I want more happiness, adventure opportunities, and great encounters! And I’m ready to work for it (i.e. make the effort to take myself in somewhere new and out of my comfort zone). If you want to do the same, here are my suggestions for exotic places to travel for Christmas and New Year.

Every year, on May 1st, the world celebrates the International Worker’s Day. On this Italian island, however, Sardinians transform the city of Cagliari into an incredible spectacle of colours, songs, flowers and all sorts of gifts of the land. I travelled to Cagliari to see the elaborate, flamboyant and multi-coloured traditional costumes that Sardinian women proudly parade during the Festival of Sant’Efisio.
Best-selling Author Catherine DeVrye: There is ‘Learned Helplessness’ and ‘Learned Hopefulness’, Chose the Latter
Catherine DeVrye, a best-selling author and motivational speaker, published a new book on inspiring resilience last October. I talked to her about her own life struggles and how from an abandoned child she became a world success.
Living abroad and earning more can be the dream come true for many women. With the rise of solo female travel and increased autonomy of women, expat and nomadic lifestyles become a new norm for a myriad of young and not so young professionals. In this article, I wanted to explore the question “Why women become expats?” as I know from personal experience how hard it is to cut the cord with everything familiar and live in a new place.
