Hi, my name is Laurel!
Hi, I’m Laurel, a New Mexican who left my sunshine and hot air balloon state five years ago to explore more of our beautiful world.
My story isn’t your typical travel story. No, I didn’t quit my corporate job of death to live in Bali/Europe/insert-destination-here and travel the world. I live in the U.S. A. and continue working full time in my day job, but find ways to take time off and explore the world at every chance I get.
But don’t get me wrong, sometimes a weekend by the pool will fit the bill too.
However, I did quit my Ski Instructor life so I could work on my student loans and get out of debt. I do miss skiing every day, but I enjoy working in the city.
I love to travel, eat all the food,
and go on outdoor adventures.
Traveling was something I grew up knowing. My father would take me on road trips in the summer and I would fly across the country to visit my family during the holidays. I’ve been fortunate enough to travel to several countries in my life and plan to continue traveling well into my old age.
Since I started meeting people on my travels, I’ve decided to share my personal experience and tips for women who want to travel around the world. I hope that by sharing my travel stories, food guides, and other tips, I will inspire you to get off your couch and out in the wild.
