About you

I am a travel writer from New York City! I work a 9-5 as an accountant for a performing arts center as well. All in all, I’m your average girl who caught the travel bug early on and completely fell in love with adventure, traveling, and exploring our beautiful planet. I love sharing my adventures with others to inspire everyone to travel as much as they can!

Why do you travel and look for adventures?

I love seeing what this world has to offer. I love the culture, the new landscapes, and the new connections I make while traveling. My hope and mission are to inspire others to explore this beautiful world by sharing my own personal travel experiences with a vision of helping others experience the world in the most sustainable, authentic, exciting way possible.

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

I look for the most immersive adventures in the local culture while trying to make sure they are not negatively impacting the locals but helping them.

What’s your go-to travel hack?

Always be willing to go off of your itinerary. There will always be something unexpected that comes up that you won’t regret doing!

Got any gear you can’t travel without?

Travel Journal

What destination are you eager to go back to?

Paris, France

How do you stay safe when you’re travelling?

While walking around stay alert. It can be hard when you’re excited to be in a new city but keep your ears open, watch your surroundings and trust your gut if something doesn’t feel right. While alone in a hotel, being a travel lock for your hotel door so no one from the outside can get in, even with a key!

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

Make friends with a local! Ask local advice if you can for restaurants and attractions.

What’s your favourite word in another language?

Boulangerie – Bakery in French

When and where are you next travelling?

I’ll be in Virginia, USA in August
