"Whether you choose to spend months abroad or travel once a year, it is important to see what's out there. Traveling to foreign countries, especially, develops cultural sensitivity and improves vision, " states Taneva. "Understanding those different cultures, ways of life, cuisines, people and their thinking will give you a new perspective on reality, international issues, and conflicts."

IdentifyLA got the opportunity to share her secrets and tips for traveling as well as sharing a few of her top hacks!

Travel Hacks:

  • Google the power plugs and sockets when traveling to foreign countries in advance so you bring the appropriate travel adaptor.

  • Always plan at least a week in advance- Do I need sunscreen? Do I need a mosquito repellent? What type of clothes would I need? Does it get cold at night?

  • Keep a flexible itinerary- don't try to see and do everything during your vacation. Slow down and make sure to relax and enjoy.

  • Talk and interact with the locals especially in foreign countries; they will often share the best restaurants, attractions, and things to do in the area.

  • Stay fit & healthy by touching on 5-minute workouts and nutritious foods.


Traveling in style:

  • Wear a maxi dress and a denim jacket; or a matching set. This clothing is not only trendy but also very functional.

  • Bring your favorite fashion handbag or smaller purse and add a long strap for easy hands-free carrying.

  • Pack some face wipes, WhitenFresh, and make-up in your carry-on; refresh and retouch before you land.

  • Bring a Minimergency Kit to add to your carry-on. It’s got everything you need just in case you lose your luggage.

Tips to packing right:

  • Always bring a travel pillow and eye mask; the pillow will prevent any neck strains and upper back pain during 2h+ long flights; the eye mask will help you fall asleep and arrive rested.

  • Make sure you get travel sizes of your personal skin and hair products (make a list if necessary): pain relief medications, dry shampoo, and mouthwash are easy to forget.

  • Pack clothes that can be worn in multiple combinations.

  • Wear your heaviest clothes and shoes on the flight so your suitcase stays light.


"Studies have shown that exploring new places can do wonders for your mental and emotional health, leads to an increased feeling of happiness and satisfaction. You might even develop skills you didn't know you had," Taneva shares. " I love the adventure! I love discovering the unknown, doing things I haven't done before, creating new stories and new memories after each travel. Traveling had definitely broadened my horizon and made me think about what are the really important things in life!"
