Who is Maya Maceka?

I am originally from Hamilton, Ontario but I have had an ongoing desire to travel the world and share my experiences with others. Explore with Maya is home to my travel tales, photography, knowledge and reviews so that you can follow my adventures. I hope that you will gain insight into new places or experiences that you might not have known about otherwise. I want to inspire others to travel more often and do what they love. That is why I began blogging my adventures here on mayamaceka.com.

What camera do you use?

The camera that I use the most often for every day use is my iPhone 6. I also use a Canon G7X for professional photos and videos.

How can you afford to travel?

I am a full time freelance writer and that means I get to be location independent. As I travel around the world, I also create content for various jobs and projects that I am working on. I am always behind my laptop and always having the time of my life. I am doing what I love and loving what I do. To read more about my journey to becoming a freelance writer, read my post here.

Where is your favourite destination?

That always changes. I think my heart is in Europe, though. I love the small medieval towns, Carpathian mountains and mixture of cultures. Although my home country, Canada, cannot be forgotten! It is home to some of the most beautiful scenery in the world.
