I am the adventure craving, nature-loving wanna be traveler behind this blog. In 2017, my boyfriend Kyle and I were sick of the work, eat, sleep, repeat routine and decided we needed a change. So after tons of research, planning, and saving money we took our first trip out of the country. That trip was like a slap in the face. What the heck am I doing with my life?! There’s so much world to explore. Before that trip, I only wished that I could go on these amazing adventures. Now I’m making them happen.

When I’m not traveling I’m planning future travels, hiking with Kyle and our pup Maddox, or decorating cakes. Fun Fact: I’m also a Pastry Chef and Cake decorator. I found that after I graduated and worked in the food industry well since I was 15, I don’t want to bake forever.

Travel is now my biggest passion and I want to share it with all of you!
