Hi, my name is Rachel! 

I grew up in California, though I lack a nice tan and the ability to surf. Think more wine tasting, less beach bumming.

I took my first international trip to England when I was 14 years old. During my third year at University, I studied abroad in New Zealand. It was only then that I realized the travel bug had found a new victim. Since 2012, I have visited 26 countries and lived in Australia, New Zealand {again}, London, and most recently New York City.

I hold a degree in Political Science and Legal Studies, but find myself reading travel blogs, and planning adventures abroad in nearly every desk job I accept. I believe it’s possible to incorporate travel into your daily life, and I am here to inspire you to do so.

Traveling the world has changed my life. I have had the pleasure of traveling with friends, family, and a significant other abroad, though I am a huge advocate for solo travel. Thinking of planning your first solo trip abroad? You can read my complete how-to guide here. Already abroad and looking for travel tips for multiple destinations around the globe? You will find them all here.

Perhaps you have simply stumbled upon this blog and want to find out more. Here are some of my most popular blog entries to date:

A short while ago, I quit my job in Midtown Manhattan in order to, once again, pursue a life abroad. And, as fate would have it {read: hard work, research, long visa processes}, I have just been offered a position to teach English is Daegu, South Korea!

I hope you will follow me en route during this next chapter of my life.
