How I caught The Travel bug

My Story 

My travel story started rather ordinary and typically over 20 years ago. Each time I went somewhere new, I returned with a desire to go somewhere again. Do you know this feeling?:)

This desire was manageable for a while, and I gave the normal life with a regular job a try, because that’s what you are supposed to do, right?

But something inside of me just couldn't shake the desire to see the world and explore. No matter how hard I tried, I never felt fulfilled by my normal lifestyle and the urge to travel only grew stronger.

Hi, I am Tatiana—currently a digital nomad traveling around Europe and beyond. Do you like my rooftop mobile office in front of a beautiful church and a storks' nest?

It was a cheap accommodation with incredibly fun experience in Olhao, Portugal.  These kind of unusual and affordable experiences is something I became a pro in.

Making a change

Eventually, I decided to make a big change to my life.  I stopped buying needless possessions, got my passport updated, and started investing in travel gear and plane tickets to Europe. By that time I've already explored all the best spots in the US and I needed to see new places.
