Hello, and welcome to my blog!
The idea behind “Chronicles of a Travel Addict” came about, because, well, I’m addicted to traveling. I’ve volunteered, taught, explored, and lived in 37 countries throughout Latin America, Asia, Europe and Africa. I’m of the backpacking, bus-taking, hostel-sleeping, street food-eating, dime-saving sort and will (probably) never catch myself in an all-expenses-paid resort. I love learning about other cultures, trying new vegan food, exploring chaotic cities and pondering over expansive landscapes.
Writer, traveler, humanist, feminist, dreamer, neo-hippie, animals rights advocate, Beat Generation lover, equality fighter, linguist, romanticist, Latin Americanist, world student, artist: these are some words that might describe me.
The last couple of years, I have dedicated myself to exploring true happiness, living deliberately, and doing my best to help Pachamama (Mother Earth) and all of her creatures. Currently, I am a freelance/travel writer and photographer, working on my first travel memoir, and enjoying the beauty of the world.
In my most recent nomadic journey, I started by spending five weeks in Iceland and ended with one and a half days in Sweden. Over the course of four months, I discovered nine new countries, including France, Slovenia, and Turkey. I’m currently in California, spending time with my friends and family before my next move. Stay tuned for more details!
My hope for this blog is primarily to share my personal travel narratives and to inspire everyone to follow their dream of travel. I will also reveal travel tips, as well as reviews of travel products, hotels, and restaurants. In addition, I will not shy away from politics, as each cultural fabric is woven by the decisions governments make. All in all, this is my way of sharing my honest view of the world with you.
Thanks for stopping by, and happy travels!
