Hello, my name is Diana
First of all, I would like to welcome and thank you for being here, taking the time to read my story so that we could connect even more.
I was born in Russia, grew up and went to school there. When I was 13 years old, my parents decided to move to Bulgaria, and I still live here for the moment.
Since I was little, we’ve traveled a lot, so I was always excited about our next family trip.
My burning desire to travel the world really started when I traveled without my family for the first time. My chosen destination was Dubai. It was so exciting, different, beautiful, and vibrant.
I experienced so many new emotions there, which I’ve never felt before. This inspiring feeling of realizing how enormous our planet is and how much there is out there which we’re not going to experience if we stay only in one place.
So, when I came back home after that life-changing trip, I realized that I can’t stay in one place and live in a box anymore but have to go out there and MEET THE WORLD.
It took me a while (3 years to be exact) to realize that I am good enough the way I am, to feel fear but still be able to go for my dreams. Understand that there is no finish point in life, that it’s all about the process and little steps that you can take to step towards your goals.
I want to create my own vision for myself and for my life and not to be molded by society standards, my parents, my friends or people around me. I don’t want to know only one way of living.
MY GOAL is to show you that it is indeed possible to travel the world and go for your dreams no matter how big they are.
My main focus on this website is traveling because it can teach you a lot more things in life than you might think at first.
It doesn’t matter if you like, luxury or budget travel, off the beaten path or “touristy” way, solo or backpack journey, short or long term, it doesn’t matter. It’s about finding YOUR WAY.
I am so happy that I was only 17 when I realized that travel is the best way to spend my money because you invest them in yourself and help other people around you.
It’s not about your age even. If it should have, it would have, so stop thinking about your past. The time to shoot for your dreams is NOW.
No matter how painful, scary or bad your situation might be, only you create your destiny, and you have the power to change it. You can always start where you are and make a step forward. Something worth doing always takes time. Your job is to continue regardless of how long it takes.
I’m just here to share my journey with you, bring a smile to your face and inspire you to do YOU. That’s why I always encourage you to message me on Instagram, Facebook or here through e-mail so that I could support you on your journey and help you as much as I can to inspire you to travel.
You help yourself so much by going out there. Meeting new people. Learning new things (there are so many different cultures, lessons, stories, and there are so many ways to live your life). Going out of your comfort zone. Learning patience (because let’s face it, no matter how much in advance you plan your trip when you travel most of the time, things are out of your control ), connecting to other people’s stories, realizing how big the world is and that you are never alone.
You help others by JUST BEING YOU. You never know who you might meet or how you might help, by just being there.
I’m passionate about traveling because it helps so many people (ESPECIALLY in not so well-developed countries) to be able to bring food on their tables, to support their families, to support their culture, not to let it be forgotten.
There is no better feeling in the world when you realize how much you helped someone without even knowing it (my Egypt trip was my first travel to such a different country and it was so eye-opening).
Of course, tourism can be harmful in some ways, but that’s why you have to do your research and educate yourself. That’s when small travel blogs like this one, comes in handy.
No matter how many blogs, businesses, shops, books, empires, or travelers are already out there doing their thing, it should never stop you from doing WHAT YOU DESIRE because you never know who will be touched exactly by your story.
No matter what your situation is, you can always find a way to make a step towards your dreams and no matter how afraid you are.
Never forget that you can always go back to your old ways but what if…
What if you succeed? What if you’ll get to a place in your life that you always dreamed about? What if you help and inspire so many people along the way? What if you gave up, right before that life-changing moment?
You will never know if you don’t try and you will never fail until you stop trying.
So, please don’t let your circumstances get to you and prevent you from living your potential and regret all the things you could have done. Go, put yourself out there, face your fears and you will see how many blessings it will bring you, how much the world will support you, and I will encourage you along the way.
