National Park Photo Contest Winner

Between April 14th and 28th, we held a National Park photo contest and asked for your best shots and, boy, did you guys deliver!

We were showered with thousands of inspiring and beautiful entries from national parks from all corners of the globe, but unfortunately there could only be one winner.

Without further ado, we would like to give a big congratulations to our winner Rachel Samanyi, who shared this stunner from Horseshoe Bend National Military Park in Arizona!

Follow Friday: Introducing World of Voyage

For this week’s follow Friday, we have decided to highlight one inspiring, wanderlusting Trover.

Meet World of Voyage!

world of voyage

Name: Christina Czubak

Hometown: I’m lucky enough to be from a city considered one of the most beautiful in the world: Paris. But I’m currently traveling my way around the world between Europe, Asia and Australia.

Occupation: I became a full time traveller in 2014 after my studies.

What’s the weirdest thing you ever eaten while traveling? I’ve been to the best place for weird food (Bangkok) but I still haven’t tried scorpions or cockroaches yet! Still, as I’m French, I like stuffed snails amongst other things. I think that’s quite weird!

What’s your #1 way of connecting with locals in new places? Smile!! Smiling is an international language. Wherever you are and whether you speak the language of the country you’re exploring or not, the locals will be more open-minded towards someone who looks happy. That’s the key to every conversation!

What is the scariest thing you’ve done while traveling? Traveling solo through South East Asia. Landing in a country I didn’t know anything about (except for a few historical highlights), where I couldn’t speak the same language as the locals, and where I didn’t know how the locals would behave was a very confusing and scary experience because I was completely lost.

Why I like Trover: Trover is one of my favorite travel app as it helps me to plan my journeys and look for not only the highlights of a specific place but also the hidden gems spotted by other users. It’s a great helpful community for any wanderluster as you’ll almost always find the exact location of a place of a picture you’ve liked.


When traveling, it is most important to…keep your eyes wide open and say yes to every adventure, as it might turn into one of the best experiences of your life. fixedw_large_4x (11)
