Hey, this is Andreea! 🙋♀️
I want to help travelers discover Romania.
You can find me on Instagram, where I absolutely love to make stories, either from Bucharest or from my worldwide travels. You can send me a message there or write me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
I’m 33 years young, born and raised in Bucharest, Romania.😁 I’ve been in love with traveling ever since I was 14. Every year since 2004 I’ve gone abroad to discover new places. But only in 2019 I can say I started to really travel, not only going on vacations like a tourist.
So far I visited 32 countries and over 125 cities around the world and about 30 cities in Romania.
😊 I am a nonjudgemental person, I respect and appreciate good and kind people from any culture.
✌️ I’m a pretty chilled and relaxed person, open-minded and with an optimistic viewpoint.
🚶♀ When traveling I enjoy exploring a place by walking (a lot) and taking photos.
🙆♀️ I’m a proud introvert, which means I enjoy exploring by myself, but l also know that the right people around make better memories. I’m sociable, but I prefer 1 to 1 talks or small groups of people because l enjoy a quality connection.
🤓 Self-development is crucial in my life. Becoming a better version of myself is what drives me forward in everything I do. Plus focusing on🥑 healthy food, ♻ ecology and ☯ spirituality.
✍ My life story (as short as l can write it):
❇ I’ve been a business owner for almost 6 years, in events (weekend fair markets with local designers, events turned into what l like to explain as small city festivals).
👩💼I was fully dedicated to my work and the designers community to help and promote them. After almost 60 events l reached a heavy burnout and decided to change my life completely.
I manage to sell my business and l started traveling and be out on a journey to discover myself, any way l knew best.
🌴My first solo trip was 2 months in Thailand. That trip changed my perspective completely on solo traveling and living life more fully. Then after many months of staying home because of the pandemic, in 2021 I restarted roaming around the world.
🎒This journey is still ongoing for me. It became addictive to live differently than what society pushes us to do and be. Tho it comes with its challenges, no doubt. But for me it’s worth it because it comes with personal growth and life experiences. 🙌
🧐 Still looking for more opportunities and places to visit that l believe can bring me value. I wanna discover more of the world and how people experience life in different cultures. So far l’m going with the flow of life and it’s wonderful!🙏
What I do now?
✍️ This travel blog is going to follow my journeys around Romania and the world. I want to provide useful information, but also fun tips and stories.
🌎 Currently, I am taking up classes to be a certified national tour guide.
🙋♀️ I do private tours of Bucharest for travelers (1 to max 3 people who know each other). Find me listed on Showaround and on SoloTourGuides.
🏰 I do private tours in Transylvania, based on a tailor-made itinerary for each traveler/ group (2-7 days)
📷 Because l take great pleasure in taking photos and editing them I share my travel experiences and tips with the world, on Instagram: deea_journey 👈
👩💻 I also take up projects in graphic design and photo editing, content writing (for blog articles and SEO).
I want to inspire others to solo travel (if they feel the need, but just find it difficult). I would be very happy to inspire Romanians to solo travel too, because I know it’s not very common in our mentality.
Also, I want to help tourists discover Bucharest and explore Romania. This country has beautiful spots, both on the mountainside and at the Black Sea side shore. It has gems so hidden it’s an adventure to discover them. And one of the best things, apart from friendly people, is the affordability (prices are cheaper than in West Europe and also has good quality services).
Thanks for reading this about me post and reach out if you need any tips or if you have a cool idea that we can collaborate on.
