About This Blog

This blog is about simplifying your life, pursuing your passions and whatever makes you happy, living slowly, authentically and with intention and exploring the world more often through travel and learning about culture, language and food. I enjoy traveling like a local, independently, as a solo female, and on a budget while seeking authentic cultural experiences, off the beaten path hidden gems, and traveling slowly.

I created this blog to document and share my experiences and stories, successes and mistakes, lessons learned along the journey of life, tips and advice for simplifying your life, living slowly and with intention while pursuing what makes you happy, traveling on a budget, getting off the beaten path, traveling as a solo female, facing your fears and getting out of your comfort zone, traveling slowly, traveling authentically and living like a local, seeking cultural experiences, maintaining a full-time job while still making time for travel and taking advantage of your vacation days, saving money, researching and planning your travels, and destination-specific guides with information and recommendations of what to do and see, where to eat, where to stay and how to get around. I will also provide an introverted female’s perspective on traveling.

I like to challenge and debunk the negative stereotypes and perceptions that people may have about certain destinations and places, through sharing my stories and experiences.

I will provide practical tips, advice and inspiration for travel to specific destinations, simplifying one’s life and living slower, decluttering, organizing, traveling on a budget, independently, like a local, as a solo female and slowly while seeking off the beaten path places and hidden gems in the places that I travel to.

My current travel focus is on exploring Mexico deeper as well as visiting Canadian and US destinations in between my longer trips. My future travel plans include exploring Guatemala and Nicaragua as well as South America (Peru, Colombia, Ecuador).

I hope that through my blog, you will find the inspiration to start simplifying your life and exploring and experiencing more of this beautiful world (on a budget, independently, authentically, and slowly), while overcoming the barriers that are holding you back from doing so! I hope to show you that travel doesn’t have to be expensive and out of reach. Depending on your travel style, it can actually be very affordable and possible to do on a budget. You can be a tourist in your own city, explore more of your home country, and have new and exciting experiences anywhere.

I strongly believe that if you want something badly enough, you will find a way to make it a priority in your life, by facing your fears and overcoming the challenges.

I also hope to inspire you to pursue what makes you happy. Life is too short to not be happy!

Thank you for reading! 🙂
