I would love to hear about your travels too. Go to “Travellers’ Tales” , fill in the quick questionnaire and email it to me with your blog links.
Read about Magda’s travels here,
1. Tell us a bit about yourself.
Hi! I’m Magda, one of two adventurous spirits behind Follow The View blog, which I create together with my husband Michal. We are a Polish couple, currently based in Germany, trying to get the most out of 30 days of vacation and countless Bavarian holidays to pursue our greatest passion, exploring the world.
2. What is your earliest travel memory?
I remember going to the Baltic Sea shore with my parents in a super tiny Fiat 126p. The whole trip took about 8 hours and was totally uncomfortable, but no one really cared – we were so excited!
3. Where was your last holiday?
I spent my last holidays exploring one of the most amazing countries in the world – New Zealand.
4. What was the best thing you did there?
Rafting in Waitomo Caves! We were floating in the dark cave while admiring glow worms on the walls. It looked like the Milky Way!
5. What was your best holiday ever? Why?
Our holidays in Santorini two years ago, during which we got married! Destination wedding, holidays and honeymoon – all in one.
6. What is your favourite travel destination?
Greece – so many amazing islands to explore, laid-back atmosphere and delicious (and cheap!) wine.
7. What must one do there?
Go beyond the most popular spots like Crete, Zakhyntos or Mykonos and explore these less crowded islands. You will have an opportunity to experience the true Greek culture and hospitality.
8. Who is your favourite travel companion/s?
My husband Michal, who is really amazing – not complaining and always eager to explore!
9. Name one item you must have when travelling.
My camera of course, with at least 2 different lenses.
10. Your best travel advice?
Skip these touristy places you have seen 1000 times in the Internet – go off the beaten path and discover true gems on your own. What a satisfaction!
11. The one place you want to visit before you die?
I really want to stay in the overwater bungalows in the Maldives – being surrounded by the ultimate luxury, turquoise water and hundreds of colorful fish!
12. Your favourite place in South Africa?
Definitely Kruger Park – it was my first encounter with Big Five, which makes it one of my best travel memories in life. Seeing a baby-rhino with his mum was the cutest experience ever!
