Travel Vlog Iv is a travel and food video channel. I’m Ivana, nice to meet you! You’ll find travel and food videos on this channel because I like to take you along while exploring the world. These videos hopefully make you excited to travel and eat food around the world as well. There’s such a joy in getting out of your comfort zone and growing as human being by traveling to new places and eating delicious food you’ve never tasted before.

I’m currently based in Bangalore because India is my favourite country in the world. Travel in India is kind of my thing but I’ve been al over the world. Just check these playlists to begin your journey with me:


Q Where are you from?
A I am born in former Yugoslavia. Mom is Serbian, Dad is Bosnian. During the ’90’s war we came to the Netherlands and I got Dutch nationality. I’ve lived in Amsterdam for 8 years but lost my heart to India. Since 2018 I’m based in Bangalore. See this video for my refugee story:

Q How can you afford to travel so much?
A I saved for 3 years while working full time and now travel vlogging is my job. I work together with tourism agencies but also do some freelance work on the side. You can watch this video: and this one: to learn more about my story.

Q What camera do you film with and what editing software do you use?
A Canon G7X Mark II and Final Cut Pro X

Q (Why) Are you vegetarian?
A I’m vegetarian but not strict. I don’t eat any meat, fish, cooked/boiled or fried eggs. I gradually became a vegetarian over the course of 15 years because I disliked the taste of meat more and more. After doing a yoga teacher training in 2015 I also quit fish and the eggs. No matter my food preferences I have no issues with other people not being vegetarian. I don’t judge others and kind of expect the same favor from others concerning my own food preferences. It makes for a more friendly world 🙂

Q Why do you usually travel alone?
A Because my friends have jobs with limited holidays, kids and partners. Also I really like exploring on my own.

Q Why do you love India so much?

    Dear Ivana,
    Great place to visit with great food we can see, but do they have any kind of non veg dishes (without coconut) also ? Once in a while please spare a thought for carnivorous too, hope you understand ..
    Love & Peace to all !
