Lets Get to Know Miguel
We asked Miguel some questions about his life as a traveller.
What is your favourite destination and why?
You know that's a pretty hard question… But I would say Indonesia, Sumatra, Java, Flores, Timor, and Papua. The islands are beautiful, but above all, I have never met such friendly people in my life. They are just awesome! I feel like I could go back all the time.
I also love Africa, a land of amazing cultures and real adventure.
If you could only give one single travel tip that you think would be the most helpful what would it be?
Open your mind and do not have prejudice. We are all different and we need to respect other cultures. We should always try to understand and learn something from each other.
What is your favourite travel related quote?
‘We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us.’
Who are your 3 favourite travel bloggers and why?
I only follow bloggers who share the same passions as mine: Hiking, Photography and Off The Beaten path travels. That's why I really like "Nomad Revelations" and "The Planet D".
But I must say that Antonio and Amanda of "theadventurejunkies.com" are the ones that I prefer. I met Antonio personally and their story was the inspiration I needed to go from my old and basic blog to my new Travelsauro project.
What was the single most influential thing/moment that drove you to travel blogging?
Basically, I wanted to share all my experiences and pictures with my family and friends so I started my first blog. Then I kept traveling and realized that I could do something bigger and reach more people, and so I started this new Travelsauro project.
What advice you would give someone wanting to become a travel blogger?
Write interesting stories and have good content, the type you think is going to help some other travellers.
Miguel created his blog with the intention of it becoming a hub of information, inspiration, and motivation to others focused on trekking and hiking adventures. His easy style of writing comes with a sense of honesty and he sincerely wishes to explore a destination from the level of the locals. A couple of his notable blog entries come from his travels through Sth East Asia, such as Hiking The Mentawai Islands and Hiking The Baliem Valley.
He is growing his following across his social media network and is very much a rising star to watch as an adventure focused travel blogger. We look forward to reading more about his travels.
