Who is Barbaralicious?

After my university studies I kind of stopped my life and hit the road. Only with my backpack and my computer I started a trip to find myself and to understand what I really want. Now I know:

I am a modern Translator and Interpreter who combines traveling and working as a digital nomad. There is so much that I love doing and that I don’t want to stop. That’s why I decided after my trip around the world to go on traveling. I am happier than ever. With my blog Barbaralicious I am able to combine two of my passions: writing and traveling!

The translator and interpreter

In 2011 I did a Magister (which is kind of a German Master’s degree) in Italian, Spanish and Latinamerican Philology and in 2014 a Master’s degree in Conference Interpreting and Legal Translations. Since 2008 I am freelancing as a translator and interpreter and specialized now in tourism and culture. This is my website: The Travelling Translator.


The Zumba® Instructor

In 2012 I did my training to become a Zumba® Instructor and had up to 16 hours a week. In June 2013 I did the license for Aqua Zumba® and in March 2014 for Zumba® Step. Unfortunately I had to stop all my courses before going on my trip around the world. On the road I still did some trainings: Zumba® Gold (in Buenos Aires) und Zumba® Toning (in New York City).

The Blogger

In December 2013 I started Barbaralicious just for fun. I had no plans for it and didn’t even know that it’s possible to earn money with blogging. I just wanted to write. Half a year later I read about the digital nomad lifestyle for the first time. In October 2014 I relaunched the blog. Today I am writing for Barbaralicious and many other blogs as guest author and give talks about being a professional blogger.

The Author

In September 2015 I published my first ebook Mein Weltreise – Ein Traum wird wahr, in which I am writing about the ups and downs of traveling the world alone. In November I published no. 2: Reisen fürs schmale Portemonnaie. I am planning many more.
