I’m Laura, a 30-something Canadian who is addicted to traveling, new adventures and experiences.
I believe that travel, particularly solo travel, leaving your comfort zone, meeting new people and experiencing different cultures are the best ways to learn.
I was bitten hard by the travel bug when I backpacked Europe in 2006, but once I finished university, I felt the pressure to get a “real” job and do all those boring things that adults are expected to do. Meanwhile, I was unhappy and screaming inside to go traveling again, so a few years ago, I abruptly quit my job to go traveling. Since then, I’ve decided to make travel my priority and I’ve become a serial traveler. And more recently, I started blogging about my travels.
My favorite places to travel are typically off the beaten path and less touristy regions, which often means developing and “unsafe” countries. I like to prove and also encourage that traveling to these places, particularly as a solo female, is absolutely possible.
I equally enjoy exploring cities and nature. My favorite things about travel are exploring new places, exploring all the different and unique landscapes, learning new things, trying new food and meeting so many amazing and unforgettable people.
I am a backpacker and budget traveler in order to save money and therefore have more money to travel for a longer period of time and to travel more frequently. While my blog caters to budget travel, someone who prefers a higher standard of travel will also benefit from my information and experiences.
I have traveled to over 65 countries and to every continent, except for Antarctica. I will never stop traveling!
Aside from travel, I love food, being active, new experiences and adventures, being social and meeting new people. And most of all, having fun and enjoying life while doing all this.
I enjoy sharing my adventures from around the world and I hope to inspire others, no matter your age, to travel our amazing world.
