Interview With Travel Blogger Charlie Jean Marchant

It is our second post of this serie where we publish an interview with popular travel blogger. Last week Elena Prokopets gave us an interview. If you are a travel blogger and have what to say our readers then we can organise an interview with you. Just get in touch with us. Give us your full name please. Charlie Jean Marchant   Do you have a preferred name or a nickname you like? My friends just called me Chaz.   What nationality are you? I’m British.   Which country do you use as your base? Currently Costa Rica, as I’ve been house sitting there very regularly over the past 6 months. My base changes all the time though. I previously lived in Taiwan and that was my base for travel in South East Asia. Of course, home in the UK is always my base for European travel.       Which country would you like to live? I’d really like to live in Sweden or one of the Scandanavian countries. I like the beautiful landscapes, the friendly locals, and the delicious cafe culture of places like Stockholm.   What is your favorite way of travelling? Slow travel is by far my favourite way to travel. I really dislike rushing through places and having to plan ahead to make sure I can pack as many of the sights as possible. I like to stay in one place a long time, have lazy days in cafes, discover the places where locals like to eat and if I’m house sitting then shop in the local farmer’s markets and cook the foods I...

Interview With Travel Blogger Elena Prokopets

Give us your full name please. Elena Prokopets   Do you have a preferred name or a nick name you like? Nope. Simply, Elena is fine.   What nationality are you? Ukrainian   Which country do you use as your base? Currently, I’m an expat in France and spend most of my time in Besancon, unless I’m not traveling.   Which country would you like to live? Frankly, I just don’t know! I’m extremely fond of the French lifestyle and food (and wine of course!), however I don’t think I’ll stay in France for the rest of my life. I think I really need to see more of the world and live in a few more countries before I can answer that question : )   What is your favorite way of travelling? With a suitcase that can fit on board (even for 1+ trips), slowly eating my way around the country. I’d say I’m more of a budget traveler, though I will definitely splurge for adventurous activities and food.   What is your take on travelling and sustainability? I always learn of the local customs first before traveling to a certain destination, especially a remote one. Absolutely socially acceptable things in the Western world, may offend people of the East and South. Besides, dressing appropriately especially for women is important if you would like to make friends with the local and avoid unnecessary attention. I always buy local food and products, opting for street markets instead of supermarket chains to support local manufactures.   When was the first time you travelled alone and where to? When I was...
