Hi there and welcome to World by Isa!
I’m Isadora, the voice behind this blog. I’m a 23 years old Brazilian born and currently living in Brazil still. Passionated about history and culture, I travel the world looking for experiencing different cultures and learning first hand about the most important historical, social and political aspects of each country and people. I have already visited 11 countries and more than 30 cities in the past 3 years.
Like many others, I always dreamed about traveling, but unfortunately it sounded far from my reality. Being born in Brazil in the 90’s didn’t help at all. The country was finally experiencing the commercial opening and everything that was already part of the daily life in many countries, was still something new and expensive for us, if a computer was a luxury iten, let alone traveling!
Traveling was never part of our culture, it was extremely expensive and way too complicated, we hardly even knew someone who had ever traveled before, and of course, it was not something encouraged by parents.
With hopes that I would finaly be able to travel, I started taking International Business at university and was hired by a reputed company, unfortunatelly I found out that life wouldn’t be what I expected if I carried on with that job and ended up quitting the boring 9 to 5 office.
After working for 3 years there, I had enough money to make my dream come true and cross the ocean, so in the same day of my graduation I booked my first ever flight to Europe.
Back to Brazil, I found a more flexible job that would allow me to travel more often. Now a days, besides World by Isa, I also run my own business, with that, I have more flexibility to travel, however, I still need to keep up with my responsabilities. We all can have a great time exploring other countries without being expats, nomads, or without leaving our career and studies asides.
Learning on the road
I love to learn different things, and nothing better than learning them first hand. Travel can be much more than just simple vacations, it can be turned into life changing experiences where you can immerse yourself in a different enviroment and experience different cultures, historical backgrounds and political scenario, that will make you understand by yourself, the reality of the world.
A nomad with a fixed address
Although I have a nomad heart and background, I do have a fixed address, I’m not a nomad nor an expat. Besides my blog, I also run my other business and it requires me to spend a good amount of time in the same place, which I happily call home.
I’m actually a part time traveller born, raised and living in Brasil. I’m graduated in International Business but quitted the area and decided to open my own business.
Adventure doesn’t mean no comfort
Everybody loves adventure, but not all of us were born to sleep in tends and use the forest. I like to show others that it is possible to have amazing outside experiences, appreciate beautiful landscapes, observe wild animals in their own habitat without necessarily giving away the comfort.
