Guys – have you had your fill of travel bloggers? I thought not 🙂 I want to introduce you to Nadine Hild; solo travel blogger of The Sweetness of Traveling! Originally from Germany and now a global citizen based out of London, England. She is an inspiration for all chicks to grab a backpack and get exploring!
Let’s dive in 🙂
Annika Nadine, tell me about your background and your blog The Sweetness of Traveling<3
Nadine I document my travels on my travel blog The Sweetness of Traveling and am hopefully inspiring lots of others, especially girls, to go and explore the world.
I went on my first solo trip when I was 12 years old – I flew to Denmark to visit a family that my grandpa met back in the 60s and has since been friends with. A few years later, I moved to cold Wisconsin (USA) to live with a host family I’d never met before and see what high school in the states is really like (a lot like what we see in the movies actually! 🙂 ). It inspired me to pursue two international degrees and had me living abroad in 8 countries to date. I’ve visited a total of 30 countries so far but there’s so many yet to tick off!!!
Annika That is awesome! I love that you started traveling so young 🙂 How then did you get inspired to create your blog?
Nadine Traveling is the passion closest to my heart. I could never get enough of it and I’m always up for a new adventure. Traveling has taught me so much, every journey shaped me and I always return a different person; more open, stronger, and always with a positive outlook on life. I wanted to inspire others to go out and explore the world themselves and so I started The Sweetness of Traveling in 2013. Increasingly, my friends and theirs have also come to me and asked for travel advice. So besides the inspirational aspect, I also wanted to share my experiences and knowledge with them and help them to make the best out of their trips.
Annika I feel the exact same way 🙂 Okay, this is a tough question coming, what is your favourite destination to date and why?
Nadine Haha, this is always such a hard question to answer because every trip is special and I have fond memories of them all!!! I love Indian food, Thai beaches are paradise, the Caribbean laidback lifestyle is to die for. . . I love the Latin American culture: hospitable, outgoing and cheerful plus I love the Spanish language. If I had to pick my top three places: Rishikesh (India), Colombia and Guatemala.
Annika So when you are on the go, working and blogging how do you manage to stay healthy?
Nadine I love yoga and I’ve got my little fitness routine (squats, burpees, planks, etc.) that I can do anywhere, preferable on the beach but a park will do!
Annika . . .and now on the less healthy side of things, what is your cocktail of choice :)?
Nadine In London, my go-to is a Pornstar Martini! However, in all tropical locations, I’d always go for a rum cocktail with fresh fruit of the season!
Annika Delicious! Okay, getting into the social media side which bloggers/social media influencers do you follow?
