ABOUT WORLDERING AROUND TRAVEL BLOG

Worldering around is a travel blog focused on outdoor adventure and off the beaten path travel (with an occasional more popular place, but with a twist on how to avoid the busiest times or areas – I do not like crowds).

It also covers comprehensive destination guides, full itineraries and travel tips – all to help you plan your next trip hassle-free! This is with a focus on responsible travel and sustainability – the important factors that I always try to follow.

Since I also work full time (geologists rock), the trips described on Worldering around are perfectly suited for other full-time workers. No, you don’t need to quit your job to travel the world (unless you want to), you can still travel a lot with a full-time job.

The trips described on Worldering around are also budget-friendly. You will find some specific adventures, experiences or unusual places that are a bit more expensive, but only because they are worth it. Snowmobile tour to Svalbard looking for polar bears, or Masai Mara safari are the examples. Apart from that, I do focus mainly on a budget to mid-range travel, and I am a bit crazy about camping (especially the wild one). I believe, that experiences are more worth it than things and every saved penny can be spent on another exciting trip.

One thing, that you can be sure of – everything I (Aga) write about, I tested myself. Days and weeks of throughout research go into the planning of every trip I take, followed by the travel part when I mostly do things and avoid sleep, so then I can come back and write for you, about the most worth-it experiences and enchanting places on our beautiful planet.

MEET AGA

I’m a geologist and a part-time traveller, currently living in Oslo, Norway.  You can find me wandering around the beaten path locations, chasing the outdoor adventures, and planning the budget backpacking trips. I also advocate for responsible and eco-travel.

I’ve been travelling the world independently for over 10 years, visited 60+ countries, and lived in three (Poland, Scotland and, now, Norway).

I do not like talking about myself too much, I definitely prefer to focus on the destinations that I’ve visited or the adventures I’ve had. You can stalk me on Social Media for a sneak peek into my travels.

My story

A long, long time ago, I caught something, which is called a travel bug or just I-can’t-stay-at-home-too-long-and-I-have-to-go-somewhere. Now, my life is ruled by this feeling, which doesn’t allow me to stay in one place too long.

I visited around 60 countries (while full time studying or working), hitch-hiked through the whole of Europe, solo travelled through AsiaNorth America, and Africa, as well as Central Asia, managed to travel a long time for less than $5 a day, did paragliding and trekking in the Himalayas, looked for polar bears in Svalbard, bungee jumped in Poland, watched lemurs on baobabs in Madagascar, swam with turtles in Philippines, cooked eggs in the geyser in Iceland, drunk vodka in -20 degrees cold of Russia, hot-air-ballooned in Masai Mara in Kenya, partied with locals in Georgia, swam in the hidden caves in Oman’s mountains, looked for moose in Canada, watched the sunset over Grand Canyon in the US and much more…

Poland

I was born and grown up in Poland, in a small town surrounded by mountains. That was the place, where I discovered the magic of travelling and hitch-hiking for the first time. Later, I moved to Krakow for 5 years of studies. Then, my trips became bigger and I travelled further.

Scotland

After that, life took me to Scotland, where I spent 4,5 years working as the geologist, discovering a new culture, getting lost in the wild mountains and being amazed by the beauty of the nature and strength of whisky.

Norway

A year and a half ago, I moved to Norway, where I enjoy a proper winter, the beauty of the fjords, dramatic landscape of Svalbard, chasing Northern Lights or midnight sun (depending on the season ;)).

Travels were always part of my life. I travelled with no money when I was a student. Now I travel with limited time, because of my full-time job. I still travel on a budget (because I like it!), and I make impossible real – with 14 countries visited in one year all across the globe.
