About me

”I haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on my list”

Irina Chernetskaya

CEO-Founder Travel, Love & Magic

Hi and thank you for visiting my website

My name is Irina Chernetskaya. Young lady born in Ukraine and raised in Denmark, who is in love with our beautiful world. Travel is my big passion and in an age of 24 I traveled over 55 countries. It’s all just a beginning. Winter 2014 I finished a bachelor degree in health science and dietitian, specialized in sports nutrition. I have been figure-skating on the national team of Denmark and lately working as a coach and choreographer. When i’m not designing travels, i’m working  with my company IceGoldDesign.com and traveling the world. Welcome to my little travel universe <3

Solo travel

I have travelled Asia on a motorbike, studied in Vietnam, climbed Kilimanjaro, danced in Cuba, lived with the locals in Africa, done luxury island hopping in Greece, tasted wine through Australia and hiked in beautiful New Zealand.

Welcome to my life, my story and my adventure.

Travel, Love & Magic

Travel, Love & Magic was born October 2014. It’s a travel blog by a female solo traveller, Irina Chernetskaya from Denmark. This website is created to inspire others to get of the conventional trail and seek out extraordinary experiences. And to show what is like for women to travel solo. I believe that meaningful experiences provide personal fulfillment.  I LOVE helping you create those experiences and the resulting memories that last a lifetime.

“My goal is to show that independent and solo travels can be easy, safe and awesome!”

I’m passionate about adventure travel, luxury travel, food/wine travel, meeting with the locals and focus on balance in life with active travel.

I love everything about travelling. Being on the road, on the plane, in the car and on a motorbike. I love going places i have never been before and places I know very well. I love meeting new people and catching up with friends from my travels. I love local food, the taste of different flavors, meeting local people and getting to know them and their culture. I find the nature so magnificent. I love pushing my limits and feeling my heart beating.

Thank you for visiting my website
