I’m Olivia. I’m a writer and content creator, and I have a passport overflowing with untold adventures.
In 2014, I left my home in the USA to move to Croatia for what was supposed to be a short stint. Five years later I’m still here, and loving it!
No, I didn’t quit my job and leave home to wander the globe as a long-term digital nomad, though that was once the life I fantasized about for years.
I’m just a millennial gal balancing a home base, steady job, and “normal” lifestyle with my relentless desire to see the world. Like many people out there, I often wondered if it would be possible to bring these visions to life without having to abandon the people and things that I loved.
Since travel is my passion, I was determined to make it a priority.
And, I’m happy to tell you that, with a bit of careful planning and budgeting, it is possible to live a life of adventure without having to give up the comforts of home.
After many years of heavily relying on travel blogs to plan the details and itineraries of each of my trips, I finally decided to start my own.
“Travel has the ability to erase boundaries, and oftentimes, misconceptions that we subconsciously hold on to. My travel philosophy is experiencing a new place instead of just seeing it: this means getting around the same way the locals do, becoming fully immersed in the customs and culture of a community, and uncovering hidden gems that often require veering off the beaten path.”
I’m so excited to now have a place where I can share my globetrotting adventures! From the frenetic souks of Marrakech to the buzzing streets of Bangkok, all the way to the stunning coastline of Croatia, I hope this blog will inspire you to get out there and see more of the world.
