Krista’s Travels

I know that travel is not the end all and be all of life, but I do enjoy it tremendously. I’m not a site-seer (I like sights, but not necessary sites). I just don’t travel to see sites. In fact, I’ve not visited many of the famous sites in the world – and that’s because they just don’t interest me.

I travel for the food, ambience, culture, vibe, architecture, smells, colours, sounds, and so that I can enjoy immersing myself in a completely new environment. Here are some photos of me fully in the feeling Wodara whilst visiting some of the places I’ve enjoyed over the past few years:

There’s still so much more that I’d like to see, but I’m a slow traveller. I’m not trying to tick anything off a list; I’m simply trying to enjoy a new environment and adapt myself to its special intricacies.

I often return to the same country repeatedly simply because I love it and want to explore a new part of it. For instance, I’ve been to Thailand half a dozen times, Italy a dozen times at least, and France a few dozen times. And then there are other places where I spend long swathes of time, like Canada, England and South Africa; the three most important countries in my life.

At the age of 34, these are the 46 countries I’ve explored to varying degrees:
