After over 10 years of international travel, I decided that my stories deserved to be shared with the world. In 2012, I created Chronicles of a Travel Addict to do just that. If this is your first time visiting my site, you should know that I am a solo, feminist, budget, ethical, vegan traveler. I’m also obsessed with animals, the Beat Generation, human rights, and all things Latin America.
I have lived in Argentina, downed absynthe in Hemingway’s old haunts in Spain, almost died in the jungles of Brazil, discovered my roots in Mexico, taught ESL in Taiwan, lived off of rice in Paris, volunteered with black and white pandas in China, stalked the hotel where Burroughs wrote Naked Lunch in Morocco, and traced my father’s footsteps in Vietnam. It’s been a wild ride and I’m grateful for every second of my experiences.
The road hasn’t always been easy or romantic, but I wouldn’t trade this life of travel addiction for anything else. If you’re a broke, single, wander-stricken female, I think this site will inspire you. Travel has become the most important thing to me in life (alongside writing and animal rights), and my aim is to show you how you, too, can explore the world against all odds. If you’re into sustainability, veganism, and personal narratives, even better!
Read on, and let the travel addiction take hold…
