Traveling is my passion. I’ve had the opportunity to travel to 35 countries and 34 US states and live in different countries and states. I have lived in Israel, Barcelona, Boston MA, Atlanta GA, Portland OR, Phoenix AZ, Sedona AZ, and Huntington Beach CA. 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.

 Eight years ago I studied abroad in Barcelona for a summer where I met my boyfriend, Zack. He works with me on the design of the website and has taken some of the photos. Since we met in Barcelona we have traveled to 14 countries, 15 states, and 26 United States national parks together.

Living in different places has allowed me to continue traveling while working full time, by exploring the area after work in the evenings 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 useful and allow people 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.
