About you

I am a travel photographer and army wife based in South Korea, inspiring families to see the beauty in their surroundings and take their children with them on adventure!

Why do you travel and look for adventures?

I travel to create joy and memories for my family while also educating them on the different cultures and foods we are surrounded by. It also invigorates my soul and makes me so happy to see and explore new places!

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

I look for adventures that we will look back on in years to come and be so happy we did it! In other words, adventures that are new and exciting, that we’ve never done before or might never get the chance to do again!

What’s your go-to travel hack?

My go to travel hack is to always bring a bottle of water and a snack like a granola bar, even if you don’t have kids because being hungry when you’re exploring is never fun! You want to be hydrated and energized so that you can fully enjoy your travels!

Got any gear you can’t travel without?

Of course, my camera!

What destination are you eager to go back to?

Take me back to Rothenburg in Germany!

How do you stay safe when you’re travelling?

I think this is a great and important question for our female travel influencers! Never post a story or post in real-time. In other words, I never make a post at a destination I am currently at so that followers know where and what time I am at a certain location. You never know who is watching you!

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

My advice is to avoid the tourist traps and head to the local districts off the beaten path! Also, going to a local grocery store and getting things for a picnic at a local park is also a great way to discover the local foods and merch!

What’s your favourite word in another language?

진짜? jinjja? It means “really??” In Korean. I love it and hear it in conversation all the time. Lol

When and where are you next travelling?

That is to be determined at the moment as the country we live in has heavy covid restrictions when it comes to leaving and entering but if there were none it would be the Philippines!
