My name is Rachel.

I grew up in California. Though I lack a nice tan and the ability to surf.

At the age of fourteen, my family took me to England. Although I didn’t realize it at the time, this would eventually become my favorite destination in the world. I studied abroad in New Zealand during my four years at university, and returned multiple times, eventually putting down roots… for about eight months, before moving to Melbourne, Australia.

As you will soon find out, I rarely stay in one place for too long.

Upon returning home from down undaaaa, I started working in a legal finance firm where I soon discovered my strong desire to travel once again. A cubicle will do that to you, folks.

I booked a one way ticket to London, England and never looked back.

I have now been to over 20 countries worldwide and do not plan on putting my passport down anytime soon. This is my own personal blog to share my stories, tips, and absolute fails throughout this crazy little thing called life. Follow me en route to my next destination!
