Wednesday Interview: The Truck Traveller 1

The truck traveller is a thirty something years old from Serbia who has been trapped in an office daily routine working in accounting administration for more than 10 years, and probably would still if her husband hasn’t accepted a new job as a long haul truck driver a few years ago. They have been together for 13 years and were not used to be separated for a long time, so she came along as often as she could on a two-week rounds.

What type of traveller would you say you are?

To be honest, I’ve never thought about it, now when I’ve read Bernard The Traveller’s article “What Kind of Travellers are You?” it is fair to state that my husband and I (as a couple) are:

#2 The event planner 40%

#3 The Gastronaut 30%

#4 The History Buff 20%

#1 The Photographer 10%

Moscow The Truck Traveller

What is the first trip you remember taking and how old were you?

It was summer vacation with my parents in Croatia

What is the one thing that you always carry inside your backpack?

Passport. I don’t even go to the grocery store without it.

Do you prefer to travel alone or with someone? Why?

I didn’t like to travel at all. Even short trips by car up to 200 km were tortures and after 3 days max I was ready to go home. Then the circumstances changed. A couple of months later, it didn’t matter where I was or for how long, if I’m with my husband. We travel together since then.

What is the one place that you would highly recommend others to travel to?

I’ll be subjective and answer Serbia. If you haven’t already, you should definitely visit it.

What’s the worst place that you have stayed in for sleeping? What’s the best?

Well, I’ve almost stayed in one motel in Chernaya Gryaz, on M10 highway near Moscow, if I did, it would certainly be the worst.

It’s hard to choose one that was the best, we usually stay in Accor, Ibis or Best Western hotels as they offer great service at reasonable prices.

Do you have any challenging and bad experience while travelling?

There were few but after a while, only the good ones remain.

If you were not travelling what would you be doing instead?

Our travelling adventure lasted for two full years, now we take trips over weekends. My husband got a new job and I was an accountant before so I may return to that.

Are you planning a new trip or do you already have a new trip in mind?

I’ve already started to plan a weekend for my birthday in June and I’m excited about it.

Do you have any advice or tips for aspiring travellers?

Just go.
