I didn’t do much. I was a front desk. What I did was answering phone call, arranging meeting rooms, simple tasks and I was playing pinterest many times in the past. There I saw all this travel photos, travel blogs, travel website. It got me thinking that there’s much more than where I am right now and I don’t want to spend my whole life sitting in the office. That made me pursuit my current job as a flight attendant.

Within those years of being flight attendant, I got what I wanted. I traveled to places I could never imagined going. But I also was missing a lot. I was missing birthdays, births, weddings, and I remember I was crying one time in my hotel room because I feel so lonely. I wasn’t realizing that it was also affecting my healthy physically and mentally.

That’s when people suggested me to do Pilates. I was doing Pilates then. During my days doing Pilates I got curious on doing Yoga which I did. Now, Pilates and Yoga are able to help me through my daily life.

Previously, I was working as an engineer. Back then I also had my freelance work as a writer. At one moment, I realized it’s too much work and I had to choose. It was really hard for me to choose between a stable job or a passion work as a writer. But then I decided to took the risk, quit my job as an engineer to travel to Asia and do some writing.

Just because I took the risk and did the things I was afraid for, now I am not holding my back to do those things. Even it doesn’t look stable, but it gives me so much happiness and joy. I do a lot of things that I want to do. Not only writing, I also do marketing, painting and bunch other stuff in this magical island.

This island is really magical. She can feel if you really wanted to stay here. She will give you a lot of challenges to teach you a lot of things. Once you accepted it, she will give you everything you ever needed.

Before deciding to actually travel abroad to teach, I spent the majority of my career dealing with school management and leadership. It was always a passion of me. I think that being able to be involved in education is a noble thing to do with a lot of benefits and job satisfaction experience.

I started my first career in teaching languages in a school in London, mainly French, Italian, and a little German. I did that for many years. I learned those languages while I was traveling throughout Europe and decided to continue learning in the university. I had the chance to actually spend time in the countries where I was learning the language. It was easier and that stimulated me to teach languages later on.

Learning languages stimulated me to have a real taste of those world. That’s when I started to visit to another countries starting from Europe. Then I spent some time in Africa. It opened my eyes into new culture and new way of living. Then here in Bali, me and my wife opened a restaurant called the traveler to share those experience while traveling.

I was a teacher around the world. I worked at international schools for 18 years. I’m from the USA, Chicago and I also moved around a lot as a child.

My parents moved to Brazil when I was 15 and I went to a private international school. I saw the school, I set up I want to teach in a school like this. From there, I always knew I wanted to be a teacher. Because I think I glow like the sun when I’m around children. Even when I was younger I played pretend as a teacher. So, I went to university in the States and then my first job was in the year 2000 in the Middle East in Bahrain.

During my travels, I met my husband. We both are travelers. The world is such an amazing place and I have always been the traveler. So now we opened up a restaurant for the traveler. We want to hear everyone else’s story and the food is a way to bring people together.

I am Stefan, I’m from Germany and I’m an architect and I love to travel the world. Because of my job, I am a little bit independent so I can work from everywhere because all I need is a laptop, a good internet connection and then I’m good to go.

When I was a kid all I had eaten in the past was peanut butter jelly toast. But after time I became more interested in food and nowadays I eat everything. That is why I am very grateful I have the privilege to visit as many place as I can to taste the food of those places. Not only the food, but I also love to meet different people and experience different culture.

In September 2019, I got the chance to visit Bali. It was amazing, I loved it there. The people are so friendly, the landscape is beautiful and the food is awesome. It’s a perfect destination, because you can find so many different styles of food. The food of the whole wolrd is in one place, it is not just Asian food.
