About me

I am a traveler, hobby photographer, website owner and developer, adventure seeker, sports enthusiast, big reader, and curious about learning new skills.

I wasn’t a big traveler until I had that one life-changing solo backpacking trip. After that, I had a “click,” and everything changed. It was such an awesome experience, and I thought, why didn’t I do it sooner? Nevertheless, as they say, better late than never. Now I am seeking new adventures more often.

When I’m traveling mode, I like to be a wanderer with an adventurous soul—seeking spontaneous journeys, putting myself in uncomfortable situations, and enjoying every moment.

After all, I am getting these controversial experiences, crazy moments, new local contacts, and uncomfortable (but fun) situations – For the memories.

About Genem Travels blog

Genem Travels started in the summer of 2020 when I took my backpack and hit the road solo. Initially, it focused more on travel stories, such as the traditional daily backpacking.

Now it’s an adventure travel blog concentrated on backpacking, experiences, destinations worldwide, and some overall travel tips and hacks. It’s all about making memories, broadening an eye on different perspectives, and getting to know the local culture, people, and how they live.

In addition to information about traveling overall, there is the section Travel Stories. This is a storytelling writing format where I will show you the backstage of my traveling, about my struggles, wins, and experiences I gained through my journey.

With this blog, I aim to inspire other people to chase their dreams or ways of living and to encourage them to make the first step. I am putting a lot of effort into content to give my readers valuable information about my covered topics.
