Kosovo Girl Travels: Seen on…

As a blogger, it’s also important to be in good relation with other bloggers by writing for their sites, doing collaborations, and even being on the media to talk about your job. Being the first travel blogger from Kosovo has given me the advantage to be more vocal and be invited to talk in TV shows or write on other travel blogger’s sites about my experiences and challenges.
