Greetings! I come from California but have been traveling through South America, currently Europe... and many more places next. I love vegan food, cats, showing off my moves on a dance floor and sharing my travel experience and perspective. I believe travel is for anyone at any budget and am always excited to share and answer questions about how WorldPackers makes that possible.

it makes one self aware and that you should not let people get to yoou and enjoy your travels. even if they test your patience there will always be people on the look out.

I confess that I was a little afraid of the experience of being a black guy traveling the world for the first time, but nadya's videos gave me more confidence, especially the second. Thank you so much for sharing.

Being a woman of color This video was very useful, It gave me more confidence , there may be a few difficult situations but it’s nothing you can’t overcome, it gave me the boost I was looking for, I appreciate you sharing your journey with us , and teaching us how you overcome things and just do what you love
