Hi! I’m so happy you’re here 🙂
My name is Patricija and I’m the writer and photographer behind I, Wanderlista. I was born in Slovenia, a small but stunningly beautiful country in Central Europe. When I was 20 years old I left my home town and even though I loved my life there, I always knew I wanted to do something different. So I moved to London to study and work. I lived there for 4 years before moving to Sweden, Gothenburg to be exact. This is where I am currently based.
I started writing my travel blog on a cold and rainy autumn afternoon in 2018 and haven’t stopped since. I had a huge desire to travel more, so in autumn 2018 was also when I decided to quit my marketing job and travel the world for 6 months, with my boyfriend. It was, to date, my biggest adventure yet and I would do it all over again in a heartbeat. This desire for full-time adventure is what sparked I, Wanderlista.
Maybe it won't work out. But maybe seeing if it does will be your biggest adventure yet.
Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT CAMERA/GEAR DO YOU USE?
My camera bag is packed with goodies and I am definitely slightly obsessed with photo equipment. I shoot mostly with my Canon 5D Mark IV with Canon 24-70mm f2.8 Mark II.
DO YOU TRAVEL FULL-TIME OR DO YOU HAVE A BASE?
I have a permanent address in Gothenburg, Sweden. I traveled full-time between January and July 2019, but otherwise I take trips quite often throughout the year.
HOW DO YOU EDIT YOUR PHOTOS?
I edit all my photos with Lightroom and Photoshop. I pay for the Photography package at Adobe and use only these two religiously, they are truly amazing.
HOW CAN YOU AFFORD TO TRAVEL SO MUCH?
Everything in life is about priorities. When I quit my job to travel full-time, I decided that the money I worked so hard to save won’t go towards buying a house. It will go towards traveling and fulfilling my dreams. The savings have covered the majority of the travels. During my travels I also worked part-time as a digital nomad, it was only about 5 hours per week, but it helped pay for a few dinners 🙂 I travelled full-time in 2019, currently I travel part-time and work and live in Sweden.
