Hello! My name is Natasha and I have a terrible case of wanderlust. I’ve always loved all things travel and am forever looking for ways to get out to see something new. I developed this blog to document the places I’ve been and things I’ve seen, as well as share some tips that I’ve picked up along the way. It’s my way of sharing how an average young professional can incorporate travel in his or her life and not go completely broke. Much of my tips and tricks are shared here, but of course there is always something new to learn.
In early 2015, I was able to ramp up my traveling to a new level (by my standards). I spent about two and a half months hopping between home and some new place. My Great Western Adventure was the most concentrated traveling I’ve ever done and it was awesome. My summer of traveling ended with my move to Chile. With a little gusto and a lot of planning, anyone can travel!
Travel is the best way to truly learn about other people and other cultures. It is the way we connect and build community across boundaries/seas/lands without screens and keyboards. My professional background is in public health and I am very interested in developing healthy communities. Traveling helps me connect with people I wouldn’t normally meet while helping me remain humble, the most important piece. I am constantly reminded how small I am when seeing how large the rest of the world is. I am currently taking a trip to South America for a year to get some international experience and see what it is like to work and live in another country.
This page is a small snippet of my experiences so far. I hope you enjoy it!
