Hi! I’m Patricija:)
In July 2009 I decided to leave my home country Slovenia, a small but stunningly beautiful country in Central Europe. I was 20 years old and although I loved my life there, I always knew I wanted to do something different. Slovenia was simply too small for me.
So I relocated to London. I was accepted to my dream University where I studied and worked in fashion. A few internships later and a BA in Photography in my pocket, life spirited me off to Sweden. Gothenburg to be exact.
I’ve been living in Sweden since 2013. After I completed my MA in Communications, I began working in marketing. In Sweden is also where I met Mikael, my boyfriend, my best friend and favorite travel buddy.
I, Wanderlista is all about discovering new corners of the globe, photographing and sharing stories and tips for anyone wanting to get inspiration or needs help to plan the ultimate vacation.
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 🙂
