Sonia's Travel Tips

My travels started because I wanted to find a better way to learn and teach languages. I founded a language learning company, Fluenz, went to China to learn Mandarin, and then spent time in Europe improving my French and my Italian as well as opening our offices in Barcelona. Most of my day is consumed by Fluenz but I’ve always been fascinated by the art of traveling. Most people keep traveling badly to uninspiring places, but I know that it is much more about how we travel than where we go. Like learning a language, traveling well to the right destination takes work. When traveling I want to see places just as locals experience them. I wouldn’t want to just tour a place, I want to get inside and feel the rhythms of life. Showing people how to do it inspires my travel vlogs and videos: Follow me, “Sonia’s Travels” on YouTube and “Almost Free” on
