#DGTravelbabes!

 

Ello my loves! 

Today is finally the day where we can launch at the newest and most fab project that is currently out there! The #DGTravelbabes project !

At Dobe Globe we believe in being your true authentic self and by being just who you are, you can truly inspire others. We believe in empowering ourselves and others!when women support eachother

There is no room for jealousy, hate or any other negative thought and feelings. In the blogger world you often run in to others with the same mindset, the same passion, the same love for the thing that you love the most. In our case it is Traveling. All the ladies above are bitten by the wanderlust bug and we all wander the globe. In stead of seeing each other as competition we decided to bundle our awesomeness and create this project for YOU!

The #DGTravelbabes (Dobe Globe Travelbabes) will bring you weekly travel inspiration, travel tips, hotel reviews, product reviews and much more.

We might all have the same passion but we have our own personality, our own character and therefor we can bring you a very versatile article, every week!

We believe in creating a strong female travel community where we can share our love for traveling the globe and bond over a mutual love for the world and all of her beautiful places!

But first things first, let’s introduce our team. So far it is the magic five, but we are always looking for new talent, new incredible women who can join our team and spread the wander loving’ together with us!

All the bio’s down below are written by the #DGTravelbabes themselves so you can get a real personal introduction!

#DGTravelbabe Cigdem:

Hi, My name is Cigdem! Probably a difficult name for you to pronounce, haha. Try saying ‘Chi damn’ – Got it? Okay! Good 🙂
I am the creator and founder of Dobe Globe. I created Dobe Globe so we could have a platform where we could be awesome together. I love to travel and I want to see as much of our beautiful globe as I can. I have am Dutch girl with international roots from all over the globe and I lived for a long time between Europe and Asian and became a true ‘Eurasian’. Last year I moved back to Europe and I settled in Antwerp where I live with my pet (stuffed animal) cat. #foreveralone. 
I am a travel journalist by heart and a professional photographer and I combine those two things at my website. I am a Asia Specialist and a little piece of my heart (or well, a big chunk) will always belong to Bali.
I am a luxury travel specialist and I love to do hotelreviews and take you with me along my journey through everything lush and luxurious !

You can follow my journey through my Instagram*!

#DGTravelbabe Veera Bianca:

“I am one of the wanderlusters with an endless urge to roam the globe, better known as Veera Bianca. My journey in to the world of travel blogging and social media started on a horse farm in the countryside of Australia back in 2006. Since that adventure, life has never been the same. I am not the kind to stay in one place for too long, I need adventure and I live for landing to new places. Since then I’ve returned to Australia several times, studied a degree in tourism, lived in Hong Kong, worked at an airport, volunteered in India and turned my travel blog into a business. These day’s I work as a Community Lead for a fab travel app CreateTrips here in Finland, write my blog and do some freelance writing for Expedia Singapore and Matador Network. My work takes me around the world – I’m actually writing this to you from Helsinki Airport!

I am madly passionate about inspiring people to go travel and to dare to live. To do what their heart beats for.”

#DGTravelbabe Brooke: 

 
Hi – I’m Brooke, one half of The Nomadic Newlyweds! I’m a storyteller and a photographer… I’ve always loved finding life’s hidden treasures – whether it’s park with an incredible view of the landscape on foreign soil or the culinary stylings of an up-and-coming chef in a tiny restaurant tucked away in my own home town.

Viewing the world through a different lens helps me bring a creative and aesthetic edge to my travel content. Having kept adventure journals since childhood, it’s a joyful undertaking to now document my experiences as a young wife, traveler and entrepreneur online – as a way of inspiring others to live fully!
I’m fascinated with the depth and heritage of every culture and I’m energized by meeting people and capturing their joy, their pain and their beings on film and through written word. I believe we find ourselves, we grow and we take flight when we experience life outside our comfort zones.
I’m on a quest to live life to the fullest, tasting the flavor of life with my husband as we surround ourselves with like-minded dreamers all over the globe!
XO,
B
#DGTravelbabe Carey:
Hi y’all! The name is Carey, but you can call me CareBear. I am an American, southern belle at heart, currently living in Prague, Czech Republic teaching English. But you can really just call me a traveling addict ( with no need for an intervention) 
 
I have been happily infected with an incurable case of Wanderlust. In September of 2013 I took a last spontaneous trip to Croatia on a whim that changed my life. There is always those things you want to do, but you’re scared and fearful, and then something just clicks in your brain and it all seems right in that very distinct moment. That’s exactly what this trip did to me. I felt I was already living the dream.  I was happy living in Newport Beach, California with a great job and a great life. But I always wanted MORE, and questioned myself, could I be even MORE happier? Traveling makes me happy, really, really happy. Whenever I return from a trip I could never explain the feeling to someone who doesn’t travel. So I decided to take a trip where I didn’t have to “return” anywhere. Booked my one way ticket to Europe, and here I am almost two years later.  I haven’t  regretted one decision I’ve made…… well, maybe that one night in ..ahhh…nevermind…thats another story for another time. 44 countries down, countless plane/train/bus rides later…. and still plenty more to explore. 
 
The moment I step off of a train,bus,plane, boat… into a new foreign place my heart skips a beat. That feeling is what I thrive and live for. I truly believe in inspiring others and my mission is to help others to do what you love, whatever that may be! Yep, cliche, I know..but it is the truth. I started off with social media outlets to keep my friends and family updated, little did I know that others were interested in my story and following along my journey.  Fun videos, Vlogging, and Pictures are my preferred creative outlet to share my stories so you can truly feel connected and see these experiences through my eyes and share the real emotions of what traveling does to your soul. 
 
Peace and love, Carebear

Hello world! I am originally from Washington, DC, USA, and I am proud to say that I am a travel addict. I caught the travel bug in 2006 on my very first overseas trip to Italy. It was somewhere I had always dreamt about and it turned out to be better than I ever imagined! I became so fascinated with the lifestyle, the architecture, the history, and the people. It opened my eyes up to the world and I left wanting more. As soon as I returned home, I immediately started planning my trip back! I realised that there is so much more world and culture to experience than the small bubble I had been living in my whole life. A fire was ignited inside me and I became so passionate about seeing everything else this beautiful world has to offer. Since then, my life has been completely centered around traveling and I have been to 44 countries! !

I started a blog recently just to document and share my experiences. Even if no one ever reads it, it doesn’t matter because it will be like a diary that I can look back on one day to remember all these fascinating places I have been and the stories that came from them. I never anticipated it, but it has become like a creative outlet for me, a release that makes me really happy. It’s like my baby and I cannot wait to put more time into it and share so many more of my crazy adventures with everyone! If I can inspire just one person to finally get over their fears and start to travel, then I’ll die a happy girl. !

The name CrazyTravelista developed from several years of my friends and family calling me crazy every time I told them about yet another trip I had planned. Before I would go on that trip, I would plan the next trip so I would have something to look forward to when I got back. I sold my car, most of my expensive belongings, and have lived a more simple life the last few years. All so I could travel more. Crazy, huh? Maybe a little, but it’s my number one passion in life and I have never had anything make me feel more alive than when I’m traveling. !

I must say that I am extremely touched by how supportive and encouraging the female travel community has been throughout all this. It seems everyone is trying to help one another and it’s really empowering and inspiring to see females working together in such an unselfish way. I am very blessed to be apart of it. Hopefully we can inspire more girls to get out there and see the world for themselves! !

You can follow along on my adventures on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and Snapchat at @crazytravelista and on my blog at www.crazytravelista.com. Happy traveling! !

 

So that is our lovely team. We will bring you the best travel articles, reviews, tips and tricks next year so buckle up, we are coming for you! 
But for now, a merry xmas my loves and keep on traveling! 

xoxo, team #DGTravelbabes

 

5 most frequently asked questions that Travel Bloggers get- and the answers to them!

Hi lovelies!

Today I wanted to share the top 5 questions I as a travel blogger get asked the most through my social media channels. I know a lot of my fellow travel bloggers will get the same questions too but my answers can differ from theirs so today I will share my answers to your top 5 Q’s!

1.  How do you afford to travel the world?
If I got get a dollar for every time I got asked this question I would be a freaking millionaire now and you would have your answer directly! Haha. But unfortunately that is not the case. I can guarantee you that every travel blogger gets that question at least once a day through IG, Twitter, FB or what ever platform they might use the most. I know that this answer is different for everyone but I can share mine. My travels are paid 50% my myself and 50% by sponsoring. I got some great deals with great brands that allow me to travel for free. I used to blog fulltime but I do not do this at the moment. I actually have a fulltime job that helps me to safe for my travels too and I travel whenever I can. Every free moment I have is either spend online, looking for new destinations to go to or by heading to the airport to jump on the plane for my next adventure!

2.  Isn’t it lonely to be a solo traveler?
You perhaps expect the answer to be ‘Yes‘ but it really is not. For me solo traveling is freedom. I like to go wherever I want, when ever I want and being able to meet new people all day every day. I am actually never lonely on my travels. I am very talkative and I am a very social person and I meet people all the time. There are some moments where I chose to be alone because I love to spend some time with myself too but that does not make me ‘lonely’. 

3.  Is it safe to travel by yourself?
Definitely a yes for this question. I do not understand why people are afraid to travel alone. The world is a beautiful place and you should go out and discover it. Of course there are some places where you might should not go by your self but as long as you trust your instances you will be perfectly fine. Do not do random weird things like walking alone in dark alleys in the middle of the night, but let’s be honest, would you do that in your own hometown? Probably not. I think that if you plan your trip accordingly and you respect the rules, norms and values of the city/country that you are in that you will have an amazing time!

4.  Aren’t you tired of living out of a suitcase?
No, hell no! I love living out of a suitcase. Being a travelblogger has taught me that I do not need as much as I think I do. I can definitely survive with 1 lipstick, perhaps 2 if I go on a weektrip. I do not need 10 different kind of shades. Haha. I love living out of a suitcase because because you can only bring a limited amount of stuff you get more creative and you develop great organizing skills which you can use in other aspects of your life as well!

5.  What is your favorite travel destination?
If you know me at all, than you would not need me to answer this question. Bali baby! Bali all the way. I am in love with the lsland, the people, the culture, the beaches, the food and well, basically everything. Bali has everything to offer that you can imagine. Great scenery’s, mountains, volcano’s, nature, beaches, luxury at an affordable price, great people. I can definitely recommend you to visit Bali! And if you do, let me know, I will send you some tips.

What is the one question that people ask you the most?

DOBE GLOBE- What does it mean tho?

Hey lovelies!

Today I will explain to you a little bit more about the name DOBE GLOBE. I have gotten this question so many times by now, and well, for me it is quite obvious what it means but I do realize that it is not that logical for everyone so let me explain it for you today.

globeWhen I thought about a name for me website I came up with a bunch of things first before I got the name DOBE GLOBE. I wanted something catchy, trendy, raw and edgy at the same time. I wanted to separate myself from others and I wanted to create an international name that was was approachable and easy to relate too (once you know what it means).

FIRST THINGS FIRST- What would my website be about?
I think it is important to think about the message that you want to send out to the world. What will your identity be, what is the maingoal of your website, what do you want your brand to look like. Many many years ago I had a beauty blog and I was active as a beautyguru on YouTube and when I got ‘older’ and I evolved more I discovered that I had many other interests. Beauty is still a big love of mine but it was not 100% me anymore. I have a big passion for traveling and lifestyle related subjects so having just a ‘beautyblog’ did not fit me anymore. I still really enjoy watching beauty blogs/vlogs and tutorials but I wanted something different, something more.

As I grew more and more and I developed more interests and specialties I wanted my website to grow with me too. One world that I really wanted in my brand name was the word ‘Globe’. I have an obsessions with globes and I think our earth is the most precious and beautiful ‘thing’. Using the word Globe is pretty obvious. It is international, worldly and related to all kind of subjects like traveling, lifestyle and even beauty and fashion! A globe is universal, just like those subjects!

Than I started to think about the message I wanted to send out to my friends, followers and readers and I came up with 2 things:

1: DO everything that your heart desires.
2: BE the best you YOU can be.

And there it was. All of a sudden ‘DOBE’ was created and DOBE GLOBE was born. So when pronouncing it it is actually DOBE and not ‘Dou-Bee’ as some might think.

At first I was a bit annoyed that DOBE had 4 letters and GLOBE 5 letters because in logo’s and all it would not be ‘even’ and I am really OCD like that

There for my message to you all: “Do everything your heart desires and be the best you you can be on our beautiful Globe. Live life to the fullest. Explore, discover, DO more and BE more. Always push yourself to be the best version of YOU!

What do you think about the name?
xoxo
