Hi I’m Katie! I recently graduated with a BA in Political Science (subfield International Relations) from UC Berkeley and am currently working on Political Science research and hunting for a post-grad job. I have been travel obsessed since I set foot on my first airplane (that I could remember) at the tender age of four. Since then I have focused on planning and funding my own trips, starting with my post high-school Europe trip.
Here is a picture of me before my latest trip:
I just got back from my first solo trip and am planning an extended trip after working for a year or two and before entering graduate school. When I am not traveling I enjoy finding interesting new places in the Bay Area (where I currently live). I also enjoy spending time in the outdoors, checking things off my bucket list, all aspects of soccer, art, and encouraging Americans to travel more. I am also a strong advocate of couch surfing, have a borderline unhealthy obsession with animals, and have been told that I am secretly an Australian who just happens to live in America. I made this blog to document my past trips, help others who are planning trips, and share my favorite finds. I hope you all enjoy!
