We’re delighted to have interviewed Audrey of That Backpacker for this week’s Travel Blogger Thursday! I adore Audrey’s blog and her worldwide journeys are incredibly inspirational. She is a full time traveler, blogger, photographer and Youtube video creator! Let’s learn more about Audrey!
What inspires you to travel and what do you enjoy most about traveling?
I’d be lying if I didn’t say that my travels are in many ways propelled by food. I love eating, and sampling new cuisines is one of the many aspects of travel I enjoy. Take me to a local market and serve me the local specialty – I’ll be a very happy girl!
Where is your favourite destination and why?
When did you start to travel, and where did you first visit?
Why did you start your blog, and what do you enjoy most about blogging?
What do you like to bring back from the places you’ve visited?
I love to collect art for my future home – wherever that may be. I like buying wooden masks, tapestries, pottery, and all kinds of handicrafts from local markets. I also seem to have acquired a bit of a pashmina collection while travelling… I see a fun pattern and I just have to pick it up!
Do you know of any places that you’ve visited that have great vegetarian or vegan food?
Chiang Mai! I spent quite a bit of time hanging out there last year and I found so many great restaurants serving vegetarian food. I’m not even strictly vegetarian, but I was still drawn to all these restaurants focusing on raw, healthy eating. Some of my favourite vegetarian-friendly spots around the city included Dada Kafe, Juicy 4 U, and Salad Concept; you can have a quick look at a few more vegetarian restaurants in Chiang Mai here.
Where do you plan on visiting next?
I’ve kind of been all over the place this summer. I’m currently finishing up a little Canadian road trip that saw me travel from Ontario to New Brunswick. In about a week I’ll be revisiting Finland for some summer fun in the outdoors. And at the end of summer I’m travelling to Cuba on my honeymoon!
