We're a dancing couple with 69 countries under our belt. We search for authentic experiences and follow the locals everywhere we go. Ask us anything!
Hello! We’re Bistra and Nace – a couple that has a passion for dancing, drinking wine and following the locals wherever we go. We’ve had our travel blog - The Magic of Traveling for six years now and our purpose is to inspire more people to travel as it best suits them, and into a direction that fits their personalities – around the world, to the nearest village or to their inner selves.
What happens when you feel you have to take traveling to the next level – beyond vacation days off work, beyond having amazing experiences outside your yearly vacation allowance?
We felt we wanted to travel more than just jump to the other side of the world, only to stay there a week or two. That’s when we decided we wanted to turn traveling from a hobby and a passion into a lifestyle. The math is pretty simple: if you want to travel more, you need to find ways to work while traveling.
So far we’ve been trying to practice jobs that are at least partially location-independent, so we can stay at a place for a longer time. Having a career in travel blogging, writing, IT makes this a relatively easier task. We do struggle to combine things we love doing that require us to stay in one place, though.
For example, we are choreographers and teach dance and to be able to do that, we have to arrange bigger chunks of time when we are able to work with people, face to face, offline. We realize full nomadic lifestyle is a huge bite, so we try to slowly and gradually set up our lives into a semi-nomadic one.
That way we’re taking the best of both worlds – we can still travel and explore for longer periods of time, and we can still stay in one place and finish our arrangements locally, and be close with family and friends.
When we're not dancing, we love to "dance" with words - that's how our first book "The Magic of Traveling: Follow the Locals" was born. Currently, we're working on the second.
