Hello and welcome to World by Isa

About Isa

Hi, I’m Isadora, and I would like to start this by telling you that I’m terrible at introductions.

I was born and raised in Brazil, and since I was a kid I always loved to learn about history, culture, and study languages.

I dreamed about traveling abroad and experiencing first-hand everything I have seen on those Discovery Channel documentaries.

At this point in the story I could mention the sad reality of being born in a (back then) underdeveloped country, where the dollar was too expensive, nobody speaks English, and only important Businessmen and politicians could travel.

I will leave it for another moment though, the important thing is, despite all the difficulties, I managed to make my first trip as soon as I graduated from university. It was not easy, it demanded a lot of planning and a lot of time to raise money, but I did it! And since then, I couldn’t stop.

Now, I’m not a nomad, I’m also not a solo traveler. I still have a fixed job, and a fixed home, plus I suck at traveling or even spending time alone, most of the time I travel with my mom, who is the best friend and best travel buddy I could ask for.

About World by Isa

The idea of creating this travel blog came first from a friend of mine, I was reluctant at the beginning though, the idea of having people reading my posts was scary (silly me right!).

Before blogging, I spent almost 3 years working in research for a Canadian university where I used to write blog posts frequently, under a pen name.

So after thinking about it for a bit, and realizing I have nothing to be embarrassed for, I finally launched World by Isa in February 2017!

World by Isa is a space in this huge place called the Internet where I mix all the things I love the most: Culture + History + Travel. Here you will learn the best ancient places and museums to visit, historical tours to take, and unique artworks to see.

Taking advantage of od traveling to learn more about the history of the world.

On this blog, I also offer short itineraries for those who, just like me, travel during vacations and want to make the most of the short time you have in each city.

Finally, I would like to thank you very much for being part of this, for giving me your time and for caring about what I write, this means a lot to me, and I hope my posts will be helpful for you!

Hope to see you around!

Safe travels ~
