Interview with Alexandra Kovacova of crazysexyfuntraveler

I am a fan of Alexandra Kovacova of crazysexyfuntraveler.com. She has been travelling as a child and she has covered many countries around the world. Although she has not visited India like some of my other interviewees yet, she says she will visit the country very soon. Read her interview here.

Who are you?

My name is Alexandra Kovacova, called Saska by everyone in Slovakia where I was born. I’m a former model with 2 MA degrees and in March 2011 I quit flight attendant job to follow my dreams and travel the world. Been full time travel blogger ever since and never been happier.

Where are you from and tell us a little about your country?

Like I said, I was born in Slovakia, in a small town called Snina. It’s the Easternmost town in Slovakia just 30 km from the border with Ukraine. Slovakia has unbelievable mountains, lakes and rivers and I wish people knew more about it.

Why do you travel?

Travel is the most important thing to me – it’s my hobby, my lifestyle, my job, everything. Like I say ”I live to travel, I travel to live”. It makes me alive and it makes every day interesting and worth living.

Which countries have you travelled to?

To around 45 countries, plus another maybe 15 I don’t really count (stopovers, road trips when I didn’t see much or just spent a day there). You can see the whole list on my about page.

Which country you liked the most and why?

Slovakia is home for me, but somehow I don’t really count it 😀 My favorite country ever is Mexico. I had loved it even years before I visited for the first time in 2011, I even wrote my University thesis about it. And why? I could name at least 26 things why I love Mexico – the positive attitude, the gratitude, culture, Mexican cuisine (OMG guacamole is my God!), pyramids etc …

Why do you blog about your travels and what do you expect from your readers?

I blog to share my experience, show people how beautiful our Earth is and to inspire people to follow their dreams. And what I expect from my readers? Gratitude and making the first step to go out of their comfort zone and do what makes them happy :)

Why the name crazy sexy fun traveler?

Well, that’s the 4 words my friends used to call me before I started my blog. I mean not all at the same time but I put them together as they describe me well 😀

Any interesting travel moments?

For me, the most interesting ones are encounters with animals and meetings with interesting people who can teach me something. The less planned, the better. But I could write a book about them all.

What are your best travel tips?

Pack light – it’s not fun to carry a lot of baggage every day. And also be prepared to go with the flow because some of your plans will change even if you don’t want that. And bring a lot of patience with you :)

What’s the strangest food you tried on your travels?

I am crazy in many ways but for me even chicken breast is strange. Now I am raw vegan so the strangest things I try are exotic fruit and vegetables.

Have you visited India and if not do you plan to visit India?

No, I haven’t yet but I definitely want to go. Not on my own though, with a friend or two. Actually, 2 friends are trying to convince me now to go to India within a few months so let’s so how it goes.

What are the first things come to mind when you think of India?

Indian curry, the funny English accent I like and a huge challenge for me.

    Hi Alexandra, and welcome to Shalu’s blog :)

    I loved going through your interview and enjoyed seeing your pictures, it almost took me to another world. Not to miss the one with the tiger – that sure is very close shot!

    Slovakia seems to be a very beautiful place and sounds like a must-visit destination. I’m sure you’d find it quite similar to a lot of places in India, whenever you plan to visit here, which has it’s own charm. Yes, the spicy curry and lots more!

    Nice meeting you crazy sexy fun traveler – apt name your friend’s chose :)

    Thanks for sharing more about Alexandra with us. Have a nice weekend, both of you :)

    Interesting to read about Alexandria aka Saska. I wonder what prompted you to become a raw vegan. You will find plenty of vegan food in India as we are a country of vegetarians though milk is essential part of diet hence not truly vegan.

      Raw vegan is the healthiest diet ever and I need to be healthy when traveling full-time. Milk is maybe essential part of diet of most countries but not healthy at all. Plus, I am strongly against bad animal treatment 😉

    Hi Shalu,

    Meeting new people and learning something from them, really a great thought and that proves that we humans love to learn something always.

    Learning is an unending process and your interview has proved it once again. We can learn something from anything and everything we do and travelling is one aspect to enhance our learning experience.

    Thanks Alexandra for sharing your thoughts about travelling and learning merging in each other and Thanks Shalu for bringing in the interview at your blog.

    Great interview Alexandra. I did know you used to work as a flight attendant, but I didn’t know you were a model :). Raw vegan? How can you resist the temptation of all of these yummy dishes you come across when travelling? I used to be vegetarian but then China happens :)

      Agness, I chose University over modeling carrier so many people don’t know about it 😀
      To be honest I find it easier to be raw vegan than when I was vegetarian or almost a vegetarian cos then u still choose worse things when it comes to health 😀 Now for me it’s the question of a 5 minute pleasure of taste and years of illness of any kind OR energy, health, good mood all the time 😉
