Join me as I find the balancing act of life, work, travel, adventure, passions, and more. Working travel into your everyday life isn't always about planning your next trip, but instead about adding exploration in all forms to your life. As I work to do this, all while staying at home more, you'll see a wider variety of stories on the blog that I hope you'll enjoy.

From nine to five I work for a non-profit organization I love and in my evenings and weekends, I focus on exploring new places, foods, books, and more. And I hope to share those adventures, the tips, and tricks I've learned with all of you.
