Hello! I am Pati.

Welcome to my blog!

Pati's Journey Within
Pati’s Journey Within

I travel solo, slowly and on a budget.

On my pages, you will find my travel stories, tips and guides on how to experience the world and a few more in-depth stories … Travel after all is also a journey within!

At 43, I decided to start everything from the beginning and reinvent my life. The job that for many years was a symbol of some kind of success… It is not anymore.

Success for me is travelling the world, going outside of my comfort zone, learning new languages and finding out what I’m capable of. So I decided to take a leap of faith, pack my backpack and see who I could become.
