Hi! Welcome to My World




Hi! Thank you for reading my travel blog.

What will you find here?

Tons of stories of all my adventures that have been had since I quit my “normal” life back in Florida in 2011. I have travel posts galore, but that’s not all…

If you’re a bit green with envy, that’s not what I want! Come join me!

No, seriously, you can travel too. I have loads of posts that will help kick start your jaunts abroad, whether they are just for holiday, or for the long term. Here’s how I travel

Do you want to know who the heck I am? Here’s a bit more about me.

Looking for the nitty gritty details of specific travel destinations? I have your back! Many of my posts have useful information at the bottom such as prices, tips, where I stayed, and even recommendations.

Want to work with me, collaborate with me, or maybe you have something else in mind? I’d be happy to here from you. Just drop me a message here.

Thanks for visiting my blog, happy travels!

    Hi Nina,

    I love your blog!! I am actually planning to teach in Spain for a year but was contemplating two programs one free that would start in september and one I would have to pay for and start in january. I am thinking of taking that $7000 it would cost me to start in january and travel southeast Asia as I wait for my september start date in Spain. My question to you is how do you get your visas for the countries you visit out of the US. Is it very difficult to do.

      Thanks so much! May I ask what program costs $7k?? That’s seems steep for a teaching certification. I’m guessing that’s what it is? Visas are actually very easy. You don’t really need one for a handful of countries in SEA, or you can get it at the border, or you can get it at the neighboring countries or online… Plenty of options! Just depends where you’re going!

    I’m looking to visit Australia and New Zealand next year in May. As an American, is there anything particular that I should be careful when I go out to those countries? Thanks!

      Not really, Azi! It’s pretty much just like the states over here for the most part. 🙂


    I am really glad to be part and parcel of this. I just want to be a mobile and teach all over the world.

    We are four guys traveling overland from Saigon to Paris creating a travel blog about how we did it along the way. We are three months in and have some great content on the website. Have a look and see what you think. If we can cross post some blogs to give us a hand this would be amazing!

    All the best!

      Hi Ricky! Sounds amazing! I’ll definitely be taking a look and I’m actually emailing you about something as well ?
