ABOUT ME

WWW.WHEREMARTAWENT.COM

 

Hello! My name is Marta, and I am a passionate travel blogger. I absolutely love being able to travel the world to gain new perspectives, try new foods (I’m a hardcore foodie), and document it with high-end photography along the way to share with my fellow wanderlust followers.

 

I was born and raised in Russia, but I am currently living in Bangkok. But before that, I moved to Prague at age 16 to earn my degree in Finance. After seven years in Prague in that industry, I realized it just wasn’t for me. Too many numbers and not enough creativity. So, I decided to take on my other aspiration and become a part of the fashion industry. With that new goal, I moved to Shanghai to study fashion marketing, where I was able to intern with several designers before heading to Bangkok to work as a fashion merchandiser. I enjoyed the fashion world so much that I decided to earn my Master's degree in Fashion Buying from Polimoda university in Florence, Italy.

 

After graduation, I moved back to South East Asia to begin working as a buyer, but after traveling all over and realizing how invigorating that is, I thought, why can’t I do that for a living? That was the moment I changed gears again and became the travel blogger you see today. I never stopped my fashion side though! I am still happily involved with fashion photography, so much that I have built a large social media following and have been featured in respectable magazines such as Vogue Italia. From self-portraits to model work, you can find this artistic side on my site as well. 

 

So, get comfortable and stick around for a while. Whether you are looking for photoshoot inspiration or scoping out new locations to add to your bucket list, you can bet you will discover that all here. But always remember, in order to genuinely experience the power of travel and exploration, you must take the leap and try it yourself. I hope that I can motivate and encourage you to open up to the idea of becoming culturally enriched because there is truly no other feeling quite like it.
