My love for travel was ignited after my first trip abroad in 2017. The excitement of exploring new cultures, tasting exotic cuisines, and immersing myself in the beauty of the world left a mark on my soul. It was during that trip that I realized that there was a burning desire within me to share my experiences and inspire others to embark on their journeys of discovery.

When I came home all I could think about was travel and how I could do it more often. Having a full-time job working 50-60 hour weeks did not allow for much travel time. So to give in to some of my wanderlust I started a blog. I received a lot of questions about my trip, where we went, what we did, and how I planned it all. So I started a blog for fun to share with friends and family. This allowed me to relive my travels as well as share my travels with other people.

While creating my blog, I found out that you could make actual money from blogging. So I signed up for a blogging course and decided to do it right. I knew that this was what I wanted to do with my life. Blogging is hard work and I wasn’t able to put as much time in as I wanted especially when I couldn’t travel as much having a full-time job.

Finally, in 2021 I decided to take blogging and my travel business more seriously. I took my very first solo trip and started creating more content. As my blog and social media grew, I started landing more brand collaborations and income from my blog.

As of May 2023, I have quit my job to become a full-time travel blogger and content creator. Becoming a full-time travel blogger and creator has been a dream come true. I’ve been fortunate to turn my passion into my profession, and every day feels like an incredible adventure. From capturing the majestic landscapes of remote destinations to providing practical travel tips, my goal is to not only inspire your adventures but to help those of you who want to take your content creation full-time.

Here I will share:

  • Travel Tips
  • Destination Guides
  • Local Gems
  • Travel Gear
  • How to Monetize Your Travel Business
  • Content Creation Tips

And so much more!

I am so excited to have you on this journey.
