About you

I fell in love with traveling while I was studying abroad in Newcastle during college. Having a full-time job in the states and trying to travel frequently is definitely not easy but have been able to make it happen.

Why do you travel and look for adventures?

To feed my soul and hunger for exploring different cities and enjoying what this beautiful world has to offer.

What kind of adventures do you look for when you travel?

I love art history and architecture. Strolling through different streets with beautiful architecture is one of my favorite activities. I also love to enjoy beautiful sceneries with a glass of wine.

What’s your go-to travel hack?

Google flights calendar!

Got any gear you can’t travel without?

My powerbank.

What destination are you eager to go back to?

Türkiye, Italy, and Spain.

How do you stay safe when you’re travelling?

I’m the worst person to answer this question because I have always been told “Omg, how come you weren’t scared to go to X by yourself or travel solo” But the reality is, the most scared of something you become, the more likely that thing is going to happen to you. I always made sure that I was not traveling solo in an unsafe country.

What’s the best way to experience a destination like a local?

Asking locals or doing some research before going to that destination.

What’s your favourite word in another language?


When and where are you next travelling?

Most likely Paris and Vienna in November
