We recently caught up with travel influencer @maya_gypsy to talk about the amazing life she and her partner @lukemcameron lead! Telling her favourite places to travel and how she gets the perfect shot for Instagram, get to know @maya_gypsy.
Tell us a bit about yourself and why you decided to become a travel influencer?
Hey! I’m Adri (aka @maya_gypsy), I’m originally from Guatemala but now I’m also happily Australian. I didn’t decide to specifically become an influencer, but things evolved from our passion to create digital content and the willingness to take risks.
Where has been your favourite place to travel?
Definitely Cuba, it was a great experience for the senses.
What do you enjoy most about travelling with your partner?
That he helps me with my oversized luggage! Seriously though I love chatting with him about what we see and being able to experience things together.
Best moment in another country?
One of my favourite travel experiences happened while on a trip with Somewear Elsewhere, snorkelling in Fiji was truly something else! It had the most amazing coral I’ve ever seen.
Do you prefer visiting cities or local places when travelling?
I prefer to visit local areas when I’m travelling.
What are 5 things you always take when you go travelling?
1. A bottle of water
2. My favourite Ete Swimwear
3. My camera
4. Coffee Press (we take our own coffee press anywhere we go)
5. An open heart!
How do you take your photos?
We use a Sony A7r!
How do you edit your photos?
I edit using my presets that I’ve recently made available for people to purchase.
What country has surprised you the most?
Cuba really surprised me, that’s why it is my favourite travel destination so far.
Where do you want to go to next?
I would love to travel to French Polynesia.
If you could only live in one place for the rest of your life, where would it be?
I would live in a beach shack on a tropical island, although I’m not too sure about the specific location.
