Hola and welcome to my little blog. I am happy you found it and since you clicked on about me, it seems like you want to know more about this blog. Vicki viaja is Spanish for Vicki travels and this is basically what it is all about. Not enough…?

Ok, here you can accompany me on my way through different countries and miracles of this world. I am on a mission to help you save money for priceless travel experiences and enjoy places off-the-beaten-path around the globe.

My goal is to show you that everyone is able to travel, even when on a small budget and I want to inspire you to try.

My kind of travel

I would describe myself definitely as a traveler and not a tourist. I like to discover places apart from the crowds and getting in touch with locals.

I usually travel on a budget and always love to discover new ways of saving money without missing out any experience or opportunity.

I’ve tried different ways of traveling, such as traveling solo, backpacking, family travel, Couchsurfing and one time I even did a luxury trip. Currently, I am backpacking with my boyfriend Eduardo through Asia. We are back in Europe from our seven months trip to Asia planning our next trips.  Currently, we are planning our honeymoon, so stay tuned. (Spoiler alert: It’s not going to be a mainstream honeymoon to Maldives or Hawaii)

I have a University degree in Tourism Management. Not only to be able to find even cheaper deals for my trips, but for one day to be able to make my passion become my carrier. But before that I still have big plans…

Three years ago, I’ve packed my bags and moved from the peaceful Harz Mountains in Germany to the lively sunny side of Spain.

Why traveling?

I’ve discovered my big love New York City on a student exchange program in 2010 and got immediately bitten by the travel bug. Since then I am filled with wanderlust and it doesn’t let me get away.

I have visited 30 countries so far but my bucket list keeps growing and my feet itching.

The purpose of this blog is to inspire you to leave your comfort zone and go out to see the beauty of this world. We want to help you to make your next trip easier, better and a little cheaper.

We met 2015 in Barcelona. Just two weeks later, we sat on a bus to Amsterdam for our first trip together.

Eduardo was my Couchsurfing host in Barcelona, so we basically met in the flat that I now also call my home.
