What's your favorite thing about traveling?

The opportunity to discover how people live in other parts of the world and to see life from their perspective.

Why do you think it's important to travel?

In my opinion, traveling is the best way to become a better, more compassionate, and more open-minded human being.

What is your idea of a perfect vacation?

Somewhere warm and exotic, where I can plan everything on the go.

What's the best place you've ever visited and why?

Jamaica is probably one of my favorite countries so far because I got to explore it outside of the popular beach resorts. Incredible nature, friendly people, tropical vibes, and an overall authentic place.

What do you consider to be your best finds from your travels and where was it?

I like to keep a souvenir from everywhere I go in the form of something handmade. One of my favorite souvenirs is a handmade map of Transylvania with all the highlights of this region, painted by a local illustrator.

What destination is at the top of your must-visit list?

I have my mind set on a proper South America exploration trip.

What was the most exotic dining or cultural experience you've had when traveling?

Eating fried crickets and drinking rice wine in a village in Vietnam.

What's something you always bring with you when you travel?

Apart from the essentials, I always like to have some sort of first aid/medicine kit. I prefer to pack light because it's easier to explore this way.

Best advice for travelers to Europe?

From a cultural point of view, countries in Europe are very different from one another. Therefore, always keep an open mind and do what the locals do!

Mountains or beaches? Why?

I would go for beaches if I had to choose because I prefer warm to cold weather.

Planes, trains, or automobiles? How do you like to travel and why?

I like all of them for different reasons. Planes take me to faraway destinations, trains are dreamy and relaxing, and automobiles give me the flexibility I need to explore at my leisure.

How do you manage pre-trip stress/anxiety and/or unexpected situations during your travels?

I don't generally have pre-trip stress or anxiety. I love traveling, and I am always excited to discover something new. For any unexpected situations, I try to find a solution, and if that's not possible, I just go with the flow and accept whatever it is that happens.

When you travel are you more interested in history, relaxation, cuisine, or adventure?

History, adventure, and cuisine. There is so much to see!

What were your reasons for choosing to work in travel? And what value do you see in it?

I like traveling myself, and I understand the importance of knowing someone local to guide you. I like to think that, through my work, people discover a different kind of Romania when they visit my country.

What’s something you’ve been meaning to try, but haven’t got around to yet?

Volunteer at a big cat sanctuary.
