Traveling is my passion. I’ve had the opportunity to travel to 36 countries and 34 US states and live in different countries and states. I have lived in Israel, Barcelona, Massachusetts (Boston), Georgia (Atlanta), Oregon (Portland), Arizona (Phoenix and Sedona), and California (Huntington Beach). When I was in college I interned for an airline and used my flight benefits to travel to incredible places. I learned a lot about airports and how to travel more efficiently with the 100 flights that I flew on during this time. Since I flew standby I didn’t know if my seat was confirmed until boarding and therefore had to plan trips very quickly. The information I used to determine if I wanted to visit the country and start to plan my trip is included in the quick guides and highlights slideshows you can find on the country pages.

in 2014 I met Zack while we were both studying abroad in Barcelona. In the 8 years we have been together we traveled to 15 countries, 15 states, and 27 US national parks. On 8/28/22 we got engaged in Iceland next to an incredible waterfall! Along with being the best travel partner (and driving us across different countries) he helps with the design of the website and photos.

Living in different places has allowed me to continue traveling while working full time, by exploring the area after work and on weekends.  I also always use my vacation time and national holidays to travel. I love planning trips and inspiring people to travel, and I hope my guides will be helpful and allow you to see that travel is accessible even with a full time job. Traveling can be a week, a weekend, or a day, so take advantage of the free time you have to explore, even if it’s your own backyard.

Safe Travels!
