I’ve been working as a translator, interpreter, and copywriter since 2008. I did a Master’s degree in Translation (Conference Interpreting and Legal Translations) and specialized afterward in tourism, culture, and crypto.
On my blog, Barbaralicious, I am writing about my life as a digital nomad. That means that I work location independent and online. In 2014 I heard for the first time of this movement. I knew from the very first moment that I wanted to live this lifestyle.
In September 2015, I published my first book. My Trip Around the World is about the emotional side of travelling the world alone. During my world trip, I traveled to 13 countries on four continents in eight months.
THE WEB DESIGNER
I create beautiful websites and combine all my skills: copywriting, SEO, translations, and application of GDPR – the European Data Protection Law.
THE SOCIAL MEDIA- & SEO EXPERT
Social Media & SEO are part of my day to day life as a blogger and influencer. This is why I started helping companies and upcoming bloggers with these topics. You can find more information about it here: Coaching & Consulting.
Inspired by the movement LOVE YOUR TRANSLATOR I launched the sticker bombing campaign LOVE YOUR DIGITAL NOMAD, or simply LYDN. My goal is to raise awareness of digital nomadism and inform people of our existence and the variety of our professions.
THE ZUMBA® INSTRUCTOR
In 2012, I did my license to become a Zumba® Fitness Instructor. From that moment on I worked as a Zumba® Instructor until I started my life as a digital nomad. In the meantime, I did more licenses (Aqua Zumba®, Zumba® Step, Zumba® Gold, Zumba® Toning) and qualifications (Zumba® Fitness B2, Zumba® ProSkills).
About Barbara Riedel
I am a half German half Italian travel blogger and translator. I always loved traveling and writing. So my blog Barbaralicious that I launched in 2014 was the perfect possibility to combine my passions. In November 2014 I started a trip around the world which was the first step into my new life – the life of a digital nomad. That means that I can work location independent from everywhere on this beautiful planet because I don’t need anything else than my MacBook and WIFI. Since then I am traveling and working at the same time. I am mostly in South East Asia or Latin America. I enjoy my freedom lifestyle, chasing the sun to be able to work in my mobile office from the most breathtaking places in the world.
Let me show you the beauty of the world and how you can live in the same way!
