About Me

I am 25 years old from New Jersey. l graduated from Stockton University with a Sociology/Anthropology Degree with a minor in Global Studies. I started traveling in 2015 with my Aunt Pat to France. This was the first time I was out of the country without my parents, I fell in love with it. After that, my traveling exploded. I began with my first trip to Asia in 2016 to Thailand, Indonesia and Cambodia at 19….ALONE. It was everything I ever dreamed. From there the world was mine, literally.

Since then, I have traveled to 29 countries and 6/7 of the continents, most on my own. Learning cultures, picking up languages along the way, and experiencing once in a lifetime things gives me life. I thrive off of it, the unknown. Some countries I have traveled for fun, others for school, some for volunteering but either way I love it all. I have spent a lot of holidays abroad as well as the past 5 New Years Eves!

Follow me on this blog or through my instagram as my adventures continue. I will also be sharing my tips and trips for traveling cheap and the best itineraries to do in these countries.
