First of all, I’m not sure how you found me, but I’m a strong believer in everything happening for a reason. Ripples colliding to form a tidal wave of this very moment in time.
So however you found me in this internet world equipped with mediocre click-bait articles (what I like to call my older work) and copious amounts of senseless garbage (what I also sometimes call my older work), I’m honored to have made the cut somewhere along the way.
For those who don’t know me personally,
there’s still time to bail, I just want to welcome you into my world. I’m not your everyday travel blogger. I’m awkward. I’m sassy. And I suck at adulting/flirting/humaning.
But with my colorfully expensive imagination,
and not nearly enough funds to support it, I want to take you guys on the adventure of a lifetime. How a girl who never desired to travel turned into a full-time nomad, finding a way to fund and support a lifestyle that enables her to travel around the world for a semi-decent living.
I’m here to inspire others through my journey of being a solo female traveler, pushing the envelope of what’s possible, and creating the life of my dreams through a relentless pursuit and downright hustle.
There’s an unequivocal education to travel that I try to encourage others to learn about, and my mission and ultimate goal is to make you, the reader, want to jump out of your seat and hop on the next flight out to anywhere.
Whether you’re a fellow travel-lover or you’ve never taken a flight in your life, I have something for every one of you guys, and I want to continue sharing why travel is such an essential component to broadening our perspectives and creating a better world.
If you get to live on this one big, amazing world for your entire life, however long or short that may be, wouldn’t you want to spend time exploring it? Learning about it? Challenging it? Loving it? Yeah, me too.
I booked a one-way ticket to Europe after graduating college in 2013, and over 35 countries across 4 continents later, and I’m still nowhere near having figured out my 5-year plan.
Heck, I hardly know what I’ll be doing tomorrow, because I invest and live for my todays — the one thing we’re all promised.
There’s an unspoken beauty about your dreams, and a coveted magic in the mystery of not quite knowing what’s next. That’s the thrill I live for, although it scares my mom to death (sorry, Ma)!
As of July 2015, I took the leap of making this wee lil’ travel blog my full-time job, so I officially live out of a suitcase. Some might call that homeless (my mother, mainly), but I’m now embracing every corner of the world as my home.
So here’s to the new memories, the unspoken regrets, and the calculated risks of dancing down a road less traveled to expand my horizons and dare to find new ones. I bring you THE BLOG ABROAD.
If you want to learn more about my story, I recommend you check out some of my viral articles here or my e-book! It chronicles every major moment in my life that’s gotten me where I am today; the struggles, the triumphs, and the hilarious stories in between both on and off the road. “From Excuses to Excursions: How I Started Traveling the World”. A future NY Times Best Seller I reckon! Speaking that into existence 😉
