, the Bosnia-born traveling and lifestyle blogger supporting adaatude! We chat with her what makes her fall in love the one thing she feels all travelers must know, her things to do in her travel destination, and more. Figure out where her favourite restaurant on the planet is and find out where she is headed!
How did your passion for traveling begin?
I have always loved being on the street and researching new destinations when I began working in my old corporate job at the tourism market, but my exploration began. I had been an Account Manager and I needed to stop by all of my clients who had been all around the world. This is the way I learned to pack one carry-on for 3 months of traveling. Perhaps not my first time around the block!
Just how many days/weeks are you currently traveling in any given calendar year? What are the kinds?
You’re created in Bosnia and telephone Tucson, Arizona. Why is Tucson, and Arizona in general, such travel destinations?
Around two times a month travel . I’m out of town about 8-10 days each month but that is not a schedule that is solidified. That is simply what the average appears to be the previous few months!
You worked for seven years at the tourism sector. What is something that you learned during your time at the market which you feel travellers must know?
People ask me that all the time since they think I’m”so Los Angeles or New York City” which could be accurate, but I really like the calm and more relaxed character of Tucson. While I find that hustle and bustle around the world and will travel the globe, I crave the relaxed character of Tucson because it’s a great place. The weather is wonderful and heat is a blessing, and it never gets very cold. Since I’m not a cold weather type of girl, it’s the perfect climate year round.
You are a successful blogger and an accomplished social networking influencer with followers. Suggestions or what advice would you give to someone who would like to be an influencer?
What do you want audiences learn and to obtain from your job?
The thing which everyone should know is that every destination deserves press and travelers shouldn’t frighten travelers. One of my pet peeves is when people believe it’s unsafe to travel. So a lot of people said I’m crazy to go to Mexico, and I think that details and have direct me. Than if I go to Mexico I might go to Detroit and be in danger in my country. The most important thing about traveling is being conscious of your environment. Each destination, no matter how nice it really is, can be the most dangerous in case you are not being conscientious.
The biggest piece of advice now, for people wanting to get into this area, is BE YOURSELF. Do not come into the space copying someone or your favourite influencer who has motivated you to start. Individuals may place lack of creativity from a mile off, and it’s ideal to be your self and be your own self that is unique. People fall in love.
Give us your’Top 5′ list for a few of your top 3 destinations. Just like some to-do listing of sorts or a mini-guide. It can be anything from your favourite hotel, best place to have lunch, best sightseeing, etc..
How many countries have you seen up to now?
The notion I want my viewers to profit from after my job is that I’m honest, if I prefer a product because it is loved by me, it’s and I won’t have a brand purchase an opinion from me. Because I’m always honest, and I tell my truth via Instagram tales (on the regular) I really believe my audience understands I’m not telling lies like a lot of influencers perform on the regular. Getting real is so important, and my audience understands I’ll tell them my frank and actual thoughts about a specific item, experience, procedure, etc.. Always honest here, also I am always willing to hear the ins and outs if my opinion is not true or dumb.
What are your top 3 favourite cuisines?
Norway is so special for me (it’s where I have engaged) but we loved each and every city. The neighboring islands and oslo are excellent, but I loved visiting Tromso and Bergen. It had been the destination that really blew me away and exceeded all and any anticipation I had of a place.
What is your favourite restaurant on the planet? What dish would you advocate?
Because Sintra and Lisbon were so incredibly beautiful, portugal was still another country. Lisbon 3 years back wasn’t quite popular and it wasn’t teeming with tourism, therefore we got to enjoy the restaurants, the city, and the people. When we moved into Sintra, we fell in love with the city (suddenly ) and it had been such a beautiful beach destination with the best cappuccinos.
What is your beloved international airport?
Boston, Massachusetts and New York City also make my top 3 destinations listing (I know I’m cheating here) but I can not pick one over another since I really like both of these cities for quite different reasons. Boston is such a historical city, with individuals and astonishing historical sites that are just beyond unbelievable. There charm across the city such as the exquisite Harvard campus. And of course some of the greatest restaurants with world acclaimed chefs. I do not even know where to get started, If it comes to New York City. All I will say is that the city is magic, and there is no city which inspired than New York City and makes me more motivated. The hustle the creative energy, the mill, and the abundance of options is ideal for a creator.
Who’s your favourite traveling companion?
What is the ideal way to kill time while traveling?
Since the country means so much to my fiancé and I., my List will need to be for Norway
What is the most exotic place you have been taken by your livelihood?
If visiting the Oslo area, I’d highly recommend spending a day exploring the various islands beyond Oslo. There is a ferry which makes visiting every island super available and easy. A good deal reside on the islands which is a charming lifestyle in my view, although Every island has its charm.
What is your best piece?
I’d recommend looking for the Norwegian beers, and Norwegian berry wine (not produced from grapes) which is so intriguing and naturally different from what we’ve experienced here in the US.
What are 4 things that you may never travel without?
Eat all the fish because you won’t ever get anything more healthy, no matter how far you travel. This goes for tap water. I am a water snob as well as the water I needed was tap water from Norfjell.
What is your ultimate dream destination?
Take a cruise through the fjords, and be sure once you get into northern Norway, to go dog-sleeding. If you are there during the time of year, be certain you attempt to observe the Northern Lights. It’s an experience you’ll never forget, particularly if you’re dogsledding and watch the lights over.
What is your favourite traveling quotation?
I have just traveled to about 10 countries up to now. There is a lot of to go!
Where are you headed?
Since I reside in Tucson (and we have the finest Mexican food in the US) I love Mexican food. Bosnian foods is, obviously, a popular, but I also love Japanese food provided ramen has my heart.
My favourite restaurant on the planet would be Chef Alisah’s here at Tucson. It’s a Bosnian kitchen which produces the best cevape and baklava (honestly makes everybody’s mouth water because of how delicious everything is) and I can not recommend it enough.
My favourite airport is Oslo. The airport is really clean you could literally eat off the floor. Restaurants and shops all makes sense And of course that the airport is so arranged, along with the placement of ticketing machines.
Mr. adaatude, aka my fiancé. I enjoy traveling around the world which is.
I enjoy listening to audiobooks, or reading a new novel (based on availability) since I do like reading. The other thing I do a lot is beginning writing about what I’m feeling, what I’m doing and what I’m eating or believing. This helps the article is written by me to the destination in a shorter time period.
Norway was and is the place I have traveled to so far, since I never thought I’d like a destination that is cold and it blew me away. That really is the most exotic and coolest place I have ever been, although I enjoy the cold far more than I ever thought I would. I feel every person should have the chance to travel to Norway, at least!
Make what you really need and intend to wear. A great deal of people pack 3 outfits each day, which isn’t realistic since the majority of us do not spend sufficient time at our rooms. If you attract 5 outfits, you’re going to all be place particularly if you re-wear several pieces with bits. This makes for additional outfits in general.
Makeup removing an moisturizer wipes, sunscreen and chargers that are portable my convertors fail.
I’d also love to find my favourite 10 bikinis and hit the Maldives or a city, although I’d like to go to Tokyo and eat my own weight in tasty ramen.
