Culture Travel is a digital destination guide for design-minded travelers who want to have the best cultural experiences around the world.


Culture Travel was founded by me, Victoria Petersen. I’m a writer and photographer who loves traveling and discovering new places. You can follow me at @victoriaptrsn or on TikTok.

I was born and raised in Connecticut. When I was 16 years old, my parents sent me by myself to attend high school in France. I learned French, made some incredible friends, and discovered a completely new way of living. It opened up the world for me, and since then, I’ve never been scared to travel solo.

After living in New York City for 7 years, I got a remote job and took off on a 3-month trip to Europe. At the same time, I created Culture Travel (formerly Culture Passport) to document and share my experiences in new cities, art fairs, galleries, museums, and private art collections around the world. My photography work has been featured by the Paris and Nice Tourism Offices, Art Basel, and Refinery 29.

I hope this website inspires you to travel more!

What kind of camera do you use?

A Fujifilm x100V and iPhone 12. I find that a professional camera is better for long-range shots, while the iPhone is best for closer, well-lit subjects.

How do you plan your trips?
