Oana and Cristian, the loonies behind Travel Loonies.

We are a Romanian couple, mad about each other, in love with the sea, we have office jobs, and traveling together is what we enjoy the most.

We share the same crazy passion for traveling, and we ’we been traveling together for more than 15 years now. We are always chasing the sun while trying to enjoy life, appreciate what we have, and make the best out of every adventure we plan.

Before the blog, we founded Travel Loonies Instagram account to document our trips, to tell the stories of the places we see, and share them with the world.

We`ve been to many places so far but still have a suitcase full of dreams, a lot of destinations on our bucket list and we wish to share our journeys and experiences with other travel passionate so get ready to get inspired!

Why Travel Loonies?

This is the story of how we choose our name and why we decided to be on Instagram.

Let’s start with WHY INSTAGRAM

We have been traveling for more than 15 years now. Except for two sea cruises and an escape to Algarve Portugal, we have always planned our trips alone, from the small details to itinerary, flight tickets, accommodation and activities. Almost all our friends and people that knew us were always amazed by that and asked us many details about the adventures.

We posted pictures before on a personal Facebook account, but a dedicated  travel Instagram account seemed like the perfect place to share our experiences to the world.  In addition, not once, our friends on Instagram told us that we should be on Instagram. So there we are :). 

Now, CHOOSING THE NAME was a quite an easy process… One day we said  “let’s go on Instagram”. Then, we questioned ourselves of what represents us, how our trips are? 

It was clear that we were crazy about traveling, so this is where the Travel from Travel Loonies comes from.
Being crazy about traveling, it is pretty clear how we came up with the Loonies :)) Simple like that. 

We hope our stories will inspire you to just travel and make your own stories to tell.
