I was born and raised in the central valley of California where I still live now with my husband and two adorable cats. I love coffee, decorating my home, photography and of course traveling! I also love sharing stories and inspiring others.
I am a full time working Registered Dental Hygienist with a case of wanderlust… so I have made it my mission to balance working full time AND checking off my bucket list!
I never had much experience traveling when I was younger, and I thought you had to be rich with lots of free time to see the world… but that is just so unrealistic for most of us. But after my first big international trip in 2017 where I saw Paris and London within one week I was hooked, I realized that it is possible to use minimal time off efficiently and find deals on flights and hotels to make it budget friendly. Since then I have made it my mission to visit as many places as possible while maintaining my full time job, and I want to share it all with you so you can do it, too!
Now I have made this blog to share my passion and help inspire busy people like you to find time to adventure and live your best travel life, too (on a realistic budget)! And it doesn’t always have to be somewhere exotic, sometimes the best adventures can be found exploring your own backyard. I truly believe life should be about collecting experiences and memories, not things.
Here in my blog you will find travel guides and tips for making the most of long weekends and using your time off efficiently and I’ll share all my best tips for finding travel deals to start checking off your bucket list!
I’m so excited you found my blog! Please feel free to reach out to me by social media, email or my contact page… I would love to connect and get to know my readers. And please let me know if I have inspired or helped you with your travel plans!
Happy travels <3
