Welcome to my site!
My name is Kriszti, I’m a 27 years old Hungarian girl living in Budapest. I have a very normal life. I live in an apartment with my boyfriend and my little dog and I have a standard 9 to 5 office job: I work as a sales controller for a big multinational company. I’m passionate about travel, photography and content creating, but it hasn’t always been like that. Stay with me if you wanna hear my story!
I don’t come from a rich family. I grew up in a little town in North-East Hungary. You know, the typical town where everybody knows everybody. We had a proper standard of living and my parents have always been very supportive, but we didn’t have a ton of money. We had lot of fun programs, but traveling was not a part of it, so we never had a family vacation. I was around 10 years old when I spent my summer holiday at my aunts and they decided to take me with them to their vacation in Italy. You can guess how excited I was! This was my first travel experience ever.
During high school I had a one-week student program in England and 2 skiing trips in Slovakia and France, but that was all. After high school I decided to go to University, but I also wanted to be financially independent as soon as possible. There was only one way to achieve that: I had to work. First I started to work as a bartender, so I could work at night and attend classes during the day. Later I got an internship at a multinational company where I met my boyfriend. This was at the end of 2013. One year later, he decided to travel to London with his friends to see an NFL game and I convinced him to take the girlfriends as well. Thanks to that, I boarded my first flight in November 2014. Needless to say, I absolutely loved it! I got a taste of the whole travel-thing and I never wanted to let it go again. I believe I caught the travel bug for real in September 2016, when we were able to fulfill one of our biggest dreams and visited New York City. But this is another story.
Since I’ve always lived in a world full of numbers and excel tables (thank you, finance!) I always thought I don’t have a single creative bone in my body. When I started to travel it unlocked a fully unknown part of me: I started to feel passionate about exploring new places, taking photos, editing them, and soon enough I discovered I also enjoy sharing them with the rest of the world.
My main goal is to inspire you to go and explore the world as much as you can! It is so true what they say: “Traveling is the only thing you buy that makes you richer.” You don’t need to have a fortune and you can also travel a lot if you have a full-time job. Trust me, I know: in 2018 I spent 70 days with traveling and visited 16 countries. Impressive, huh? No, I’m still not rich, I still have only 21 days off per year, like I said, I have a totally normal life. So if I can do it, you can do it as well! I’m here to help you with all my experience and travel tips. I hope you will enjoy being here with me!
