Hi there, ciao, 你好. Welcome to my travel blog!
Growing up, I never had just one culture or group of people to identify with.
I was proud to think of myself as both European and Asian; to be raised with multi-cultural traditions, and to speak 3 languages (sometimes 4) on a daily basis. I saw how beautiful it was to transcend the boundaries between cultures so different from each other, and living that experience only made me crave for more.
That’s how ‘The Diary of a Nomad’ began.
I let my curiosity drive me, and set off to see the world. I went on to live in the US, Japan, Peru, France and Australia. My restless feet took me to 59 countries and I’m not even halfway through my bucket list yet. The more I traveled, the more I became fond of photography as well. I taught myself how to shoot with a DSLR and began documenting my adventures. You can find all my gear here.
Then, in 2019, travel + photography became my full-time job.
One day, I decided to share my travel photos on Instagram. Little did I know, my audience grew from 0 to 100K+ in 1.5 years, and I discovered a new passion: inspiring others to see the beauty of the world through my lens. I truly believe that traveling opens our hearts and minds; the more we do it, the more we reduce the gap between all the beautiful cultures that coexist on our planet.
In fact, if there’s one thing I’ve learned from globetrotting around it’s that the places that are typically deemed “unsafe” are often actually the safest ones, and they have some of the kindest and friendliest locals I’ve ever met. There are so many cultural misconceptions out there, and I hope this travel blog can help debunk many of them!
