Adventure-seeking globetrotter

Read Susana's Articles

With an innate thirst for unearthing far-off treasures and discovering the world in all its depth and breadth – whether that may be well-trodden tourist hotspots or virtually untouched and remote corners; I am undying wanderluster that leaves no stone unturned. Having started my lifelong travelling journey with my family at the tender age of four and now continuing to do so with a family of my own, there’s nowhere in the world I wouldn’t be keen on seeing and exploring.

My travel interests are wide, varied and far-reaching; from mingling with natives and immersing in the local culture to going off the beaten track on my own, or, on the opposite side of the spectrum; touring sites with the expert guidance of a knowledgeable local guide, all the way to trying out bespoke experiences and enjoying the finer things in life - there’s no aspect of experiencing a destination that I would turn down.

Nowadays, whilst I still travel solo and enjoy doing so, on many occasions I get out on the world accompanied by my husband and my two little ones, with the family aspect adding to the challenge of seeing and doing as much as possible while keeping everyone happy and fulfilled. Travelling for me and now us as a unit has become as much about relaxing and exploring as learning and exposing our younger ones to different cultures, landscapes and history (especially as they grow older).

Log into my blog posts to draw inspiration from all my travel-related feats and journeys; from family-friendly fun to adults-only adventures; from venturing through dirt tracks and muddy paths to cruising through red carpet-style haunts and soaking up the finest luxuries. When travelling I believe that the more you see and do the richer you become and soul-nurturing activities can range from feeding elephants at a wildlife reserve to riding the waves in an awesome waterpark with sunny, tropical weather to go with it. Let the adventure begin!
