Meet our BlaBlaStar, Diana. A BlaBlaStar is a member of the community who has caught our eye because of their exciting job, their interesting hobbies or for just being generally awesome. Diana is a Psychology Lecturer at Portsmouth University and she regularly uses BlaBlaCar as a passenger.
What do you love about BlaBlaCar?
Well first of all, it’s an incredibly inexpensive way to travel, often door-to-door. Second of all I get to talk to people I probably wouldn’t meet during my day -to-day life.
What has been your best BlaBlaCar experience?
The first time I used BlaBlaCar I travelled with a woman who taught the UK Military about chemical and biological weaponry, which was really interesting to hear about. Another time I rode with a ferry driver and got to listen to him make-up a bedtime story on the spot for his son using his hands-free set. It was a really cute and creative story.
Tell us about your job
My job as a Psychology Lecturer is amazing: I’m so lucky. I get to read and think about what interests me most of the time. Often I have students who are really excited about the subject matter I lecture on. Also, the job is really flexible and I’m surrounded by really smart and passionate people who are excited by the same nerdy stuff as me!
Describe BlaBlaCar in three words :)
Cheap, cheerful, chatty.
Thank you, Diana.
