The Traveler

Greetings!13428582_1264406816910453_6751119698924188385_n

My name is Erin and I’m an avid fan of spontaneous adventure, international travel, long chats over anything caffeinated, and, of course, ice cream.  I’m on a mission to immerse myself in foreign experiences, challenge myself to overcome cultural barriers, and see the world one city at a time.

I’m a believer in the epic strength we can foster as an international community through vulnerability, cooperation, and curiosity.  As a passionate videographer and storyteller, my goal is to inspire others to pursue adventure, provide helpful tips as I learn by experience, and make the world a more accessible place for everyone to explore.  Travel, whether international or local, creates an environment that is continually challenging and inspiring to anyone who takes the journey.

8 years ago I set off on a two-week trip to Chile that resulted in an unexpected yet serious case of the travel bug.  Since then I’ve visited more than 22 countries and spent 6 months living abroad in Shanghai, China after graduating from college.  After my first post-graduate dream job turned my world upside down, I set off on an international solo adventure through Southeast Asia and ended up writing my first book.

I hope you’ll join me as I continue my life’s journey and reveal all there is to know about traveling the world, creating meaning in everyday moments, and seeking the next big adventure!
