Hi, my name is Eva and I just quit my job to travel for the next months/years. My biggest passion is travelling, and I decided to share my stories and experiences from my favourite off-the-beaten-path destinations with you here. I am hoping to give you inspiration and take away your fear of travelling to exotic or extreme locations.
Most people I know already consider me a well-travelled person, and I guess I have travelled to a few more or less exotic places, but there is so much more out there! If I were to count, I have been to 35 countries, and to me it sounds like a very small number. So, I am about to change that. But I am not going to start collecting passport stamps, I am more interested in really experiencing places and cultures. Slow travel is my style.

If you are interested in my most extreme trip so far, read here about my hike through the Empty Quarter.
A bit of background information on myself: I am a Radiologist and used to work for a big company in a small hospital consulting team. My job included travelling every now and then, and sent me to some exotic locations, e.g. Erbil in Kurdistan or Kochi in India.
As I love to eat, the local food is a huge part of my travel experience. I am a little picky though when it comes to meat, so the Asian street food markets are quite a challenge for me.
My other passion is reading, I love books, fiction that is, and lately I have taken to reading books that relate to my travels somehow. In Oman I read a book about the first crossing of the Empty quarter; when sailing in Greece I read Treasure Island. The nice thing about this is, when I pick up the books again, I will always remember the place, the smells and sounds of my holiday.
Lastly, I like to take photos, if you want to see more of them, feel free to follow me on Instagram.
