Helen aka TravellingHelga blogger interview

Introduce yourself – Where are you from? Where in the world are you currently?

Hello budding travellers! I am Helen, aka TravellingHelga. I’m from a quaint country town in Lincolnshire, England and I’m currently back here for the summer catching up with friends and family musik gratisen und offline hören.

Tell us about your first trip abroad? What first attracted you to a life abroad?

My first ‘serious’ trip abroad was a Camp America-style summer in the USA, working and living in the state of Minnesota. I was 20 and it was my first time travelling solo. After that summer I knew I had it in me to jet off alone whenever I felt the need. Five years later a bad break-up was the catalyst I needed to pack up my bags and jet off alone to see what the world had to offer me charts legal downloaden. I’m definitely not the first traveller to hit the road in order to forget a negative experience back home!


What kind of traveller are you? Backpacker? Long-term traveller? Short term? Other?

I travel with a 50-litre backpack so I guess that makes me a backpacker! My last trip lasted almost two years so I’d also put myself in the long-term bracket herunterladen. My little stint back in England is purely to reconnect with my life here and save up for my next adventure.


How do you fund yourself when travelling?

I had a working-holiday visa in Australia and will definitely be working abroad during my upcoming travels in order to stay on the road for longer spotify zum herunterladen markiert. Before a trip I will save up as much as possible so that the first few months are pure travel. Then when the bank balance is low I’ll think about working for a while and save for the next adventure. To me, working and living abroad is still a form of travel and a fantastic experience.


Your favourite place you have been to font download? And why?

Hard question! How can you single out one place in the whole wide world?! If I have to it’s got to be Melbourne, Australia. I lived there for 10 months and really got to know the city inside out. It’s a place I felt welcomed by, excited by and I loved Melbourne in a way I didn’t know was possible ps4 update 7.00 herunterladen.



Your least favourite place you have been to? And why?

I always keep an open mind when I’m travelling and try not to have expectations so that a place can’t ‘disappoint’ me or be different to how I imagined it youtube converter to. I’ve sat here for 10 minutes trying to come up with somewhere I didn’t like and I can’t think of anywhere except Krabi in Thailand, purely because I ate some dodgy streetfood and got really sick so I felt terrible the entire time I was there!


What advice would you give to other people looking to travel?

Number one piece of advice: don’t be afraid of travel videos direkt von der seiteen. Don’t be afraid to travel solo, or to go somewhere that you find intimidating – it’s so much less scary once you get there, I promise. Getting on the plane is the hardest part. My other best travel advice concerns packing. Roll your clothing items one by one and secure with a hair tie or elastic band how can I download something from the library. They stay neat and uncreased and you can rifle through your bag without totally messing it up.



What is left on your bucket list for you to accomplish/see?

So many things. South America and Africa are up there. There is no definitive list for me and pretty much no country or experience in the world that wouldn’t interest me tonstudio für pc kostenlos downloaden.


Where do you see yourself in 5 years time?

If I’m lucky and the universe is kind to me, working as a full-time travel writer with a smoking hot man to come home to every once in a while.


What is the biggest difference to life overseas compared to life at home?

At home you have a support network of friends and family. When you are overseas you either don’t have one or have to cultivate one out of the people you meet on the road. I find the independence freeing and empowering; however, I am also so grateful for the invention of Skype!
