The Person Behind It All

Hi, I am Marta

If you stumbled upon my website, there is a reasonably good chance that you love road trips, being outdoors and, above all, photography. Good news! You are in the right spot.

I have been travelling for more than 18 years, eventually turning my passion into a full-time job – creating hiking, photography, and road trip guides to my favourite destinations around the World.

What Makes My Guides Unique?

Thousands of monthly readers visit my website to plan their next adventure trip. Here are the reasons why they don’t need to look elsewhere.

1. Independent

All trips have been funded out of my pocket, allowing me to remain unbiased about any destination featured here. Despite visiting many, I’m only sharing my favourite locations with you, ensuring you don’t waste time planning your trip.​

2. Personal

In a world of millions of travel blogs, often typed by ghost writers who have never visited the destination they blog about, I can assure you that I did every single road trip, photography location, and hike described on this website.

3. Thorough

I often see “ultimate” travel guides written by someone who has spent only a week or two on location. I don’t chase destinations to tick them off my list. I often spend years creating each guide and living in each destination—quality over quantity, above all else.

4. Visual

“A picture is worth a thousand words.” I am sure you have heard this saying. I took all images on my website (unless otherwise stated). You won’t find stock photos here. Through my photography, I want to convey the beauty of each destination in hopes that one day, you will see it with your own eyes.
