About you

My name is Brieonna I’m 27 years old and I live in Dallas, TX. I’m the social media director for a tech startup here in the area. I played soccer in college and have always loved the outdoors. My fiancé and I love to go camping, hiking with our two dogs, walks around our neighborhood lake, cycling and kayaking in the spring/summertime.

Why do you travel and Hike?

I truly believe traveling, getting outside, and being with nature is healing for the soul. It’s a way to connect with yourself and your surroundings in an experience like no other. See different cultures, experience different things, deepen your understanding for yourself the world we live in.

What’s your go-to travel hack?

Honestly, my travel hack is to go with the flow. I typically go with a very loose “itinerary”. I go with some general activities in mind to do, some local spots I want to try, and then take it day by day.

Got any gear you can’t travel without?

I always travel with my tripod. Great for taking pictures/videos when you’re traveling solo or when you and your partner want to capture that perfect moment but you’re 13,000 ft above elevation and no one is around to take it for you.

What destination are you eager to go back to?

Anywhere with a beach for me. I love the ocean. Or the mountains in Colorado during spring/summer. Some of the most breathtaking hikes and views.

How do you stay safe when you’re travelling?

Before and after I travel (even before COVID) I always bulk up my immune system!!

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

Research!! Do some googling before you go so you have an idea. hen when you get there ask the locals around you for the best spots!

What’s your favourite word in another language?


How has travel changed in your lifetime and how will it change over the next 25 years?

I was very fortune to grow up traveling a lot with my family. Unfortunately in my younger, high school years I could never really appreciate it. I just wanted to be with my friends. Now that I’m older my views on traveling are so different. I value it like currency or oxygen! Over the next 25 years I see longer, more extended travels. Spending more time in foreign locations diving deeper into different cultures and experiences.

When and where are you next travelling?

Next is Mykonos Greece! Fingers crossed with all the travel bans we will make it.
