I am a trained journalist and a widely published professional writer and photographer. I am a member of Russian Union of Journalists and International Federation of Journalists. My profession is to travel. More than 14 years, I travel all over the world, write articles and make reports for Russian periodicals – «L’Officiel Voyage», «National Geographic Traveler», «Voyage», «Perfect Flight magazine», «Russia Aeroflot World», «S7 Magazine», «GEO Traveller», «Aeroflot Premium» and other.
My own project Orange Traveler was first created in 2014. Orange Traveler is a bright blog about travels, Travelogue, an archive of valuable advices, as well as useless information, a collection of unusual itineraries, recommendations and amazing stories. It is quintessence of all that has a true value in journeys, and what I would like to share with you.
For many years I have visited more than 60 countries, and I have seen many wonders. I saw the sunrise in the African savannah and sunsets on the Caribbean coast. I ran away from wild elephants in Sri Lanka, caught ghosts in old castles in Scotland, walked around dressed like a princess at the carnival in Basel.
I teased white sharks in South Africa, flied “Tarzan” in the jungles of Costa Rica, watched penguins in the Antarctic, dandled a baby from the Himba tribe in my arms and I even became a personal assistant to Santa and received a diploma within the Polar Circle.
Vianne Rocher, the heroine of the novel “Chocolat” by Joanne Harris, always flew away with the wind of change. Apparently, the same wind, for many years picks me up and carries me in the search the adventures, elations, new meetings. Continents and countries, cities and time zones change each other.
People, hotels, money also change.
Not to put too fine a point on it, I get changed after each little life lived outside Moscow too. Only one thing remains unchanged – the belief that the world is enough!
