If you’ve already read ‘About’ and went through my blog, but want to know more about the story behind Innagram blog, here is it.
The way I travel
First of all, let me clarify, I am not one of those “I quit my job to travel the world” persons. I work and I can not stay doing nothing, let’s say like downshifting, looking for not spending anything and agreed for whatever conditions.
I did not seek for traveling, travelings found me! :)
I was traveling continuously since I was born. I lived in a number of different locations and moved a few times.
From the beginning it was just due to family circumstances, but then it grew to the addiction to changes and due to my curiosity seeing various destinations from inside.
New environment changes yourself, kicks you out of your comfort zone and pushes you to achieve more.
It gives your life a new boost, new experiences, new impressions, new friends, knew knowledge and promotes your personal growth.
If you have ever moved to another place, you probable understand that feeling.
I am adventurous curious and passionate for travel and even though I am down to the earth and I climb mountains, I do extreme sports and go to the bush camping, I often do prefer style and luxury travel. Well, I do both :) to have more vivid life and travel experience.
Thanks to the Places I’ve lived in
I lived in a little surrealistic town on the remote Kamchatka peninsula in a Pacific Ocean (between Alaska and Japan, close to China and South Korea).
Since I was a child I’ve got used to often long-distance 9 hours flights. I enjoyed flying a lot and even dreamed to be a flight attendant lol.
Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky is a wild hidden gem with endless of possibilities for travel, active sports.
I’ve never missed a possibility to explore and to wonder around there.
Snowy slopes of volcanoes, ski resorts in the middle of the city and lots of backcountry rides. Everything in my home town was about snowboarding. Here I’ve got a passion for winter sports and riding the boards.
My father was my inspiration – he worked for many years as a sailor on an industrial ship and visited many overseas cities ports. I was listening to his exciting stories and impressions of another countries and always got a good story and nice souvenirs :)
As far as tKamchatka is very close to Asian countries, my first overseas destination was Thailand (2000). I’ve started sharing my travel experience and I enjoyed helping people with information and travel tips.
Nevertheless, my adventurous soul was craving for more.
I’ve moved closer to Europe to the the truthfully most gorgeous city in the world – Saint-Petersburg. A place sits on Neva River and on Finland Gulf. Saint Petersburg to study arts and travel business, guess why :)
I explored nearest countries around Europe (just to name a few: Finland, Check Republic, Cyprus, Germany, France, Holland and others) and some nearest cities in Russia as well.
When I’ve heard of the idea that you can actually work and travel in USA, I joined this programme and received a J1 Visa. I’ve traveled to the states twice and spend about a year mostly in Florida, New York and a little bit in Arizona. I’ve managed to explore LA, Miami, Daytona Beach, San Diego, New York and New Jersey, Pensilvania and Arizona.
There are still lot’s of places I plan to visit in America and I look forward to share with my next trip around The States one day soon!
After I’ve obtained my degree in Travel business, I was thinking where am I going to go next.
I was always dreaming of trying surfing and I saved some money working in a travel agency and ‘arrivederci’!, I moved to Bali!
I spend 4 in Bali, travelling frequently around Asia, meeting lots of incredible people and gained fantastic experience.
Unfortunately, Bali was not safe and not that fun anymore and I was considering to move on and to develop my career in a more civilised place.
I moved to Australia, where I continue to explore and share my passion for travel and give you all my experiences for free :)
I hope you like what I do and if you like travel and crave for adventures, inspirations and personal experiences in travel – you are in the right place, Innagram is created for you.
