I’m a…vegan, yogi, backpacker, wanderer, vagabond, earth-loving, wannabe hippie with an endless desire to see the world and a love for sharing my experiences. I’m a born and raised [north suburban] Chicagoan who kills for live music and dancing until the sun rises. I never left the states until June 2012 when I hopped on a plane with a one-way ticket to India. After 14 months of traversing through most of Southeast Asia and a bit of Australia, I returned home to save for my next adventure. With a quick cheeky trip to Europe and Guatemala, I finally packed up my backpack and took off to South America with a one-way ticket to Lima. From the southern tip of Chilean’s Patagonia region to the Caribbean beaches of Colombia, my [now] boyfriend and I hiked, toured, bussed, partied, spoke Spanish and experienced Sudamerica over five wonderful months. Now we are currently living in Wellington, New Zealand, a country I’ve been wanderlusting over for years. Our travel plans continue to grow and our next adventure is right around the corner.
My friends often reach out to me for travel advice and I love sharing any tips, recommendations, and ways to save money. If you ever have questions, concerns, or just need the extra push to follow your wanderlust dreams, PLEASE reach out to me.
Oh and I LIVE for spontaneity.
