My name is Maria and I`m a travelholic. (I expect a group “Hi Maria” back) My initials are actually M. E. G., hence how I came up with “MegsWanderings”. In the beginning of 2016 I decided to create and Instagram account where I could share my passion for travelling and photography with likeminded people and give them my quick travel tips that I`ve come up with through time. One thing led to another, and here you are, visiting megswanderings.com, where you can find all kinds of different (helpful, I hope) articles about the destinations I`ve visited, travelling in general, hotel and restaurant reviews, bohemian fashion, cruelty-free beauty and hell, you can even find some vegan recipes while you`re at it. I created this website so it can help make planning your next trip easier, give you ideas about places you should visit and inspire you to go explore!
More about me
The first international trip I remember making was with my school when we visited Greece. I was 7 and it was a very big deal. I remember going back and explaining to my mom in unnecessary details how different the beaches felt in comparison to the ones I was used to in our country, how even the water had a different colour. This was the start of my life-long fascination with exploring new destinations. Fast forward to about 15 years later, I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. I was in University and I wasn`t very excited to become a translator in 4 European languages, as my studies suggested I should do. The thought of spending most of my time in an office was making me suffocate, that`s why I never worked a 9-5 and always found myself jobs that didn`t require this lifestyle. The most fun I`ve had was probably being a stewardess on a train. It was extremely exhausting at times but at least I got to travel all around central Europe and wake up in all kinds of dreamy places. All of this was only motivating me more to pursue one of my biggest passions – travelling.
Other things I`m very enthusiastic about include animal rights discussions, cruelty-free cosmetics, aviation, vegan food, rooftop views, homemade wine, and a good read. I`m also a HUGE film and TV series fanatic. There`s nothing better, I think, than a thought provoking, well-written and well-acted movie. And fun fact, this obsession of mine also started when I was 7 and I watched the first Lord of the Rings film. Thanks, Peter Jackson!
