Hello and welcome! My name is Irina and travelling is a big passion of mine. In January 2012 I decided to create this travel blog where I can share stories about my travels, my experiences and emotions.
Although I was very eager to post often in my blog, I didn’t have enough time. The reason for that was that the idea of starting a blog came two months after the birth of our daughter. When you have a newborn baby life is completely different and you don’t have much free time for other things. After that I went back to work and my free time was almost non-existent. That’s why I started posting more often in December 2013.
My first travel outside my home country was in 1994 to Hungary and Slovakia. Later that year I visited Greece. In 1998 I visited Austria, Hungary again and Turkey. In 2002, 2003 and 2004 I had the opportunity to work and travel in the US for a total of 14 months. Since 2002 I traveled somewhere every year, some of the trips being business trips. At one point I totally caught the travel bug and I intentionally started planning a new trip every year. At first I was travelling by myself, then with my husband and in the last five years we travel with our two daughters as well. We live on the West Coast of Canada in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia.
I don’t like to travel to the same destination more then once. There are so many beautiful and exciting places around the world and I want to visit as many as I can. Of course it happens to go to the same place several times but the last time this happened, I felt that I am wasting my time there.
I hope that many of you will find something interesting, exciting and useful in my blog despite the different travel styles of different people. If you like what you see, I invite you to subscribe to my blog and receive updates for new posts.
