About The Blog  | About Me  | Post You’ll LikeAs Seen In… | Faves + Resources


This travel blog is dedicated to encouraging, inspiring, and changing the narrative of what it means to be a millennial, traveler, or color.

My mission is to help you travel like a boss on a budget, build amazing travel brands and online businesses, and get outside of your comfort zone through travel (domestic and international)!

This travel blog offers tips, tricks, and travel hacks on traveling on budget, travel guides, interviews of others traveling the world, and a few personal reflections (like how I almost got arrested in Kenya!).




You can read a longer, more in depth about me here.

I am Rachel.

I am a self-professed “cool nerd”, tech loving, foodie, beach bummin’ woman from Florida, with a heart to travel the world and strike everything off my Bucket List!

After battling with Anxiety Disorder and Depression, I ‘retired’ from Corporate America at 27 years old to live in Purpose and fully indulge in my Wanderlust!
