Blogger of the Month – Thomas Banik


What did you do before Instagram? Good question, no one ever really asked about that. Actually I just did my bachelor studies in media management and … partied a lot! What’s your advice for Instagram? The most important thing is to have fun. I don’t really know anyone who has a lot of followers and started all of it because their initial aim was to be a blogger. You have to do something you are good at
or you love a lot in order to be able to do it in the long run. Just be active, be good at what you’re uploading or be some kind of special in it, or maybe be recognizable in how you write! It doesn’t always have to be the imagery. And then do it all for a long time. These are the three tips I can give really! Do you draw a line between job and leisure time? I have a question for you in return: If i get up in the morning and look at my phone how I usually do maybe check Instagram as well: is this work or leisure time? That’s a positive and a negative thing at the same time. My private life is mixing with my work. This should be everyone’s goal, because you basically work half of your life or maybe even more. You’re sitting in an office or work the whole time and most of the people work, to then live afterwards. But it is actually super sad, that you throw away half of your life and are not really enjoying it. So that is why I’m trying to
make my work also be my life, so that i am able to fully live all the time. Biggest travel fail? Luckily I never really experienced one. So many colleagues of mine told me that they lost their whole suitcase. I just always get special security checks at the airport,
I don’t know why, but always more thorough than all the others. The most disgusting thing you have eaten while traveling? Yes, cockroaches for example, in Thailand. They were that big! But actually they’re not even that disgusting. But yeah, they look gross and also feel weird in your mouth in the beginning. As if you were eating seaweed and then there is also something super soft. Probably innards or so. What’s your travel quirk? Actually I somehow i managed to turn my quirk into an advantage. My quirk is that I’m not very good at organizing things. That’s why I just try to go to places without making plans. This has become my style by now I just book and travel somewhere with no plan or something, not how others do it. I just go there and walk through the streets,
talk to people and try to get to know the locals,
because only they know the real stuff. But this is definitely a weakness as well – i’m chaotic! Who would you love to receive a postcard from? Leonardo DiCaprio. because he is the best actor on the planet!
