31 years old with Austrian and Portuguese nationality.

My name is Sylvia Pichler, I am 31 years old and I have Austrian and Portuguese nationality. I have a Language and Digital Marketing background and I speak Portuguese, English, German, French, Spanish and Czech. One day I would like to speak fluently Italian and perhaps learn Arabic or an Asian language.

Right now I am based in Porto/Portugal, but ever since I was born I have been travelling – from family relatives in Germany and Austria, to academic exchange programmes in the Czech Republic, work experiences in Belgium and Germany and regular business trips within Europe.

Travelling is and will always be my passion.

Most of the time I travel solo and I aim to inspire women to travel solo in a comfortable style.

I love both adventure travel and combine it with some fancy experiences. It can be a Michelin restaurant experience or a hotel exclusive stay. From hiking in El Chaltén to travelling first class on the Inca Rail train to Machu Picchu,  The Fancy Explorer will give you an insight into combining your solo travel adventure with some fancy tastes. Travel solo as a female does not always mean backpacking, you can also combine travels with your fancy tastes. I am here to inspire you to travel solo in a fancy style. That is precisely the core of this blog and what you will find throughout my posts.

Below on the map you can see which countries I have already visited – so far 40 and the goal is to continuously increase.
