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...
