ABOUT

Hey, nice to have you here — My name is Andreea-Ele­na and I’m the adven­tur­ous soul behind GypSEE Adven­tures.

I’m a wild heart­ed gyp­sy soul that loves to walk bare foot. I was born in Tran­syl­va­nia, Roma­nia and grew up in Vien­na, Aus­tria.

I grew up with long camp­ing trips in the deep, wild forests of Tran­syl­va­nia — swim­ming in lakes, brush­ing my teeth with ice cold riv­er water, fish­ing, cook­ing at the camp fire and scar­ing away brown bears.

Camp­ing, being out in nature and mov­ing fur­ther to new places is in my blood. I love the thrill of adven­ture, of over­com­ing my fears.  Spend­ing nights out, watch­ing the stars and sit around camp fires are my favorite kind of nights. I love deep con­ver­sa­tions and tend to see mag­ic all around me.

In sum­mer you’ll find me at psy trance music fes­ti­vals around Europe — where I love to dive into a dif­fer­ent, more col­or­ful world and do what I love to: camp­ing, danc­ing, tak­ing pic­tures and hang­ing out in ham­mocks.

Since my solo camp­ing adven­ture to Tener­ife (in 2016) for three months I’m total­ly hooked on trav­el­ing, not only trav­el­ing but the art of slow trav­el­ing. Stay­ing longer in one place, mak­ing friends with locals and get­ting to know their cul­ture and day to day life. In my eyes this is the best edu­ca­tion one can get.

I love shar­ing my trav­el adven­tures and pic­tures with peo­ple and that’s the rea­son I start­ed this blog. You’ll read a mix of dif­fer­ent sto­ries, main­ly on trav­el­ing, camp­ing, hik­ing, psy trance fes­ti­vals, van life, sus­tain­able way of life, eco fashion/second hand. 

Thanks for read­ing Gypsees, 💚
