Discovering Travel Tidbits with Rob from 'Stop Having a Boring Life'

With the tagline 'Stop Having a Boring Life', Travel Blogger, Rob is living his life to the fullest. His passion and love for truly travelling is an inspiration for people unable to turn their travel dreams into a reality. Discussing the same, we at Holidify recently had a fun interview with him where we talked about his interests, his travel bucket list, and so much more. 

1. What happened for you to realized that you needed to "Stop Having a Boring Life"?

I always knew that I wanted more out of life. I wanted to travel after university but didn't have that much money so figured I'd work then go. Well, life happened, and then years later, I knew it was now or never. I had all the trappings of success but was miserable. Turns out waiting to go longer let me leave with more which was good.

2. Did you always have travel blogging on your list of interests? How did your love for blogging stem?

I bought bloggeries.com in 2007 and got into blogs. I loved writing about my experiences and then when people started interacting and sharing, it got a lot more interesting. I'm grateful I started when I did and proud to be one of the members of the first real wave of travel blogs.

3. Your Instagram is dominated by beach sceneries, which is your favourite coastal spot in India?

I love beaches and living near them. In India, I'd love to visit Goa at some point.

4. You're close to bagging a 26k fan-base on Instagram. How does that feel?

It feels pretty good that there are people who are interested in the pictures I post. I'm very grateful to have built a community about what I love.

5. What does your travel bucket list look like in 2020?

Keep living in Bali, visit the Corn Islands at some point and maybe even include some time in Canada, Portugal, India and Nepal.

6. You went skydiving in Spain in 2017. What was it like? Do you have any adventure activities on your list this year?

It was a rush; I highly recommend it. These days I just like playing golf and going for long walks on the beach. I know it's a joke to some, but I go for long sunset walks almost every day. It's a form of meditation for me, and it never gets old. Always new faces and love a good sunset.

7. Are you into more mainstream travel or do you believe yourself an offbeat travel junkie?

I've always done what I want, which is a bit of both. I don't hunt for off the beaten track places, I've been to so many before. I'm just enjoying being a global citizen and travelling as I see fit at this point. After ten years you get into a routine, and I'm cool with that.

8. Lastly, do you have any tips for all the budding travellers out there?

Yeah, save money and figure out a way to make some money online while you travel. That's the key. I see so many who love travel but don't do ANYTHING while they travel to keep an income. They work hard at their jobs and don't embark on travelling again. Combine both!
