In this travel guide website, you have found yourself a place to learn about different locations and people around the world. I will strive to bring you tips and stories from my adventures. Hopefully you can find useful information to help you in your daily life, whether it’s for traveling or connecting with different people, or giving you a needed mental break away from work or life… I’ve been there, I know it’s needed!

Who am I? I am 28 years old and originally from Seattle, Washington. I started traveling internationally at 16 when I moved abroad for a year as an exchange student to Brisbane, Australia. The travel bug bit me hard but it took another 10 years to finally move back abroad. At 27, I started out in Cambodia, moved to Taiwan for a few months and then went back to Cambo as it had stolen my heart. After teaching 2nd grade in Phnom Penh for 8 months, I decided it was time to start exploring more of the world and switched my career to permanent traveler.

I hope you enjoy my adventures as much as I do and I’m always open to advice on places to go, things to do or people to meet.
