Travelers we Meet: Niki Bozionelou

Travelers we Meet: Niki Bozionelou

Off to a great start of the week. Did I mention that I am about to go on vacation soon? And guess where? To beautiful Greece. And speaking of Greece, today’s traveler lives there. Maybe I’ll pay her a visit. Meet Niki.

Hello there! My name is Niki, I come from Greece and I am the founder of NIKOZA.com – a travel focused website. I’m very passionate about traveling but not the type of traveler that would go anywhere, just to go. More like a control freak when it comes to my itinerary! Ha! If I could describe myself in 4 words, I’d probably say foodie, shopaholic, sensitive and persistent! My dream is to be able to make enough money to support a nice lifestyle through what I love doing the most: Travel! It takes a lot of hard work and a lot of investing but I’m getting there… Slowly but surely!

So far, I’ve been to 18 European countries and 2 abroad! That might not seem much for a travel blogger, but trust me, it is! I’ve been to a lot of different cities in each country and multiple times to the same countries. See my goal is not to just see the capital city of every country; no. I want to see most of each country and try to understand each culture! Besides, my list is about to explode this upcoming year, since I’ve already planned my next 4 trips which will happen by November! I’m very excited about them – especially the exotic destination I’m currently planning with my partner! It’ll be a first for both of us!

Also, if you read my blog or follow my Instagram and Facebook, you’ll see that this summer I will cover a lot of places in Greece, the most beloved European destination each summer!

I forgot to mention that I’ve lived in 3 different countries – Greece, where I was born, Serbia for 4 years – where my husband comes from, and England for a year – where I studied. Those 3 countries hold a special place in my heart and have a lot of memories and friends from all! I visit all 3 at least once a year!

I’ve been to Romania twice, but only in Timisoara for less than 24hrs each time. I liked the city’s architecture a lot! I’d also love to visit Brasov and Dracula’s castle, the Carpathian Mountains (one of my dreams) and of course Bucharest. Hopefully within a year, I’ll be able to scratch that off my list too. I’ve heard that their food is delicious too! Another reason for me to visit.

Happenings from my travels

Most surreal experience: NYC – Me eating a cupcake outside Carry Bradshaw’s apartment and later strolling up and down 5th Avenue.

Scariest moment: In a taxi in Istanbul. The driver reversed in the middle of the highway because he passed an exit. I started screaming and the moment he stopped I jumped out the car without even paying him.

Best souvenir: Cow-print slippers from the Netherlands!

We will be waiting for you Niki, whenever you decide to visit Romania again!

    Awesome to learn a bit more about your Niki and all the travels you have done. Great idea for a blog post btw Finding Romania. I too only spent 24 hrs in Romania of which I spend most of it on the park bench sick lol. Would love to see Dracula's castle too and more of the country as well. Great to read about fellow travel lovers. Reply

    The Istanbul episode scared me. It must be tough in that moment to sense potential dangers. I hope the driver did not mean to do anything. But as you start each day, stay positive and trust the world. Reply
