About you

I’m a 21 year old. I moved from Texas in 2018 to chase my dreams. I’m studying to become a wildlife biologist, hoping to get a job involving conservation. I work a full time job, but any free time I have I usually spend outside hiking! I’m in love with the outdoors and everything it has to offer! Recently I have gotten more into self love and spiritual healing. There’s nothing better than a life full of self love and endless adventures.

Why do you travel and look for adventures?

The world is a giant play ground, who wouldn’t want to explore everywhere they could?

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

I don’t have expectations. Too many expectations can lead to disappointment. Never take life too seriously!

What’s your go-to travel hack?

Always have fun, no matter where you are. You never know when your life could end!

Got any gear you can’t travel without?

I always travel with my camera to capture memories to look back on! Also, you can never go wrong with more snacks!

What destination are you eager to go back to?

I don’t have any specific places, I’d rather see something new right now

How do you stay safe when you’re travelling?

Always have a first aid Jane and be aware of your surroundings. If it’s hiking on a trail or traveling in a vehicle, take your time, no injury is worth getting somewhere on time.

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

Take your time to research the area you’ll be in. Prepare yourself for anything. Also, don’t be afraid to reach out to people in the area and make friends!

What’s your favourite word in another language?

Haha I don’t think I have one, but I do have a tattoo that says ‘overcome.’ Meaning that you can overcome anything, as long as you set your mind to it!

When and where are you next travelling?

Hoping to get out of the US now that covid is starting to get better!
