Hi, I’m Sarah.

I grew up in a town of less than 3,000 people in the rural South, and somehow at this point in my we’re-still-going-to-call-it-mid-twenties-although-it-might-technically-be-late-twenties… I’ve visited 18 countries.

How in the world did this happen? 

To make a long story short, I’ve been able to visit 18 countries (and counting) because I’ve consistently made travel a priority.

But travel was never my only priority.

Over the past ten years, I’ve also earned an undergraduate degree in international business and started building a career in finance. In the fall of 2017, after four years of working full time, I purchased my very own fifties fixer upper in Nashville, TN.

I guess you could say that my “angle” or “niche” in the travel blogging sphere has always been balancing travel with other priorities, and that will likely continue to be my style as I navigate a DIY renovation on my first house with a full-time job in finance.

This should be fun.

What You Won’t Find Here

This blog was never intended to become a source of income, except to the extent that someone from National Geographic reads my blog one day and decides to hire me as a writer (still waiting on that phone call…)

In all seriousness, I write because I love to write. You won’t find ads here, because they annoy me, and in my experience they tend to detract from the important stuff on many sites I visit (also known as: the written content). Another thing you won’t see around here are affiliate or sponsored posts. If I write a product review, rest easy in the knowledge that I wrote it because I just wanted to write it.

In fact… that is the reasoning behind every post you’ll find on this blog.

This is my little corner of the web where I get to write exactly what I want to write.

And I’m so thankful for it.

Get Connected

I’m pretty active on twitter and instagram, and since I’m a new house-parent, I’m also spending quite a bit of time on pinterest these days. You can also leave a comment on any of my blog posts or use the contact form below to get in touch with questions, concerns, ideas for posts or opportunities to collaborate.

I’d love to hear from you, even if you aren’t from National Geographic. Promise.
