About me

Ana Matei – Digital Marketer and Photographer traveling often

23 years ago, I went on my first trip abroad and fell in love with the idea of traveling the world so much so that my first University Degree now reads Geography. Although I never made a career out of traveling and didn’t convince anyone to pay me for a 10-year trip around the world, I somehow managed to become a frequent traveler in my 30s, after pouring a lot of sweat and tears into building my own small business during my 20s. I have been working in Marketing for 16 years now, 13 of which as a solo entrepreneur providing Digital Marketing services to companies in industries like Retail, eCommerce, Travel, HoReCa, IT, Arts & Education. 6 years ago, I also started working as a Photographer and Stylist, and it turned out to be my favorite job to this day.

Traveling every month for a few years in a row has been rewarding but far from easy, especially since I research, plan, budget, and organize every trip on my own. Although it might seem like I’m always on holiday, there’s a lot of work going on behind the camera and the articles on this blog, both in my office and on locations, therefore no trip featured on this site was actually a vacation but rather an extra job I loved doing. Since I believe books and travel to be the best teachers, most of my trips are cultural journeys with goals attached or specific photo projects centered around my main interests: food, architecture, visual arts, and traditions. Hopefully, some of them will be partially featured here, in addition to the travel guides and food trips already published on this blog.
