Hi! I’m Maya, And I’m a true travel lover and addict.
I’m 20 years old, born in Philadelphia and moved to Israel when I was 7 years old with my parents and younger brother.
I’ve always loved traveling, since I can remember myself. But it really started to kick in when I was 11 years old, we went to visit our family in Flordia, and went to a 5-day cruise with them to the Bahamas.
This was one of the best trips of my life. It was also the first time I visited a country that isn’t Israel or the United States.
I was shocked seeing a different culture, and oh god can we talk about those turquoise water????
Since that trip I fell inlove with exploring new places, experiencing new things, hearing and trying to learn new languages.
Well, I think falling inlove is too easy for what I feel about traveling. Honestly, traveling became my obssesion, my way of life. I feel so alive while traveling, exploring new places and cultures.
In the past few years I’ve been traveling a few times a year every year. I pay for my trips with my own money only, and 90% of my income is saved for my travels.
I work very hard to travel, but in the past two years I’ve developed my own ways to save money while traveling, and making it possible to travel a few times a years, for not that expensive, without missing out on anything!
Pretty cool huh?
And… that is another reason I opened this blog. I wanted to share my love for traveling, share my adventures, and also share my best tips that I’ve developed and working on, to travel for the cheapest as possible, and do it as many times possible.
Since I opened my blog, blogging has changed my life and became my second biggest passion.
I love blogging and I love everything that comes with it. And that’s also why I started a little section on my blog that includes everything blogging related.
For now, I can truly say that blogging changed my life for the better, and starting a blog was one of the best decisions I’ve made in my not so short life.
So, this is travel-by-maya.com , I hope you will enjoy reading my blog and learning new things!
