Hi! Traveling is my passion and I’d love to share that passion with you and maybe, just maybe, I can inspire you to pursue your passion as well.

Hi everybody! I’m Vicky and despite working a full time job, I make travel a priority in my life.

I’ve dreamed of traveling the world since I was a little kid. I remember looking through my mom’s encyclopedias (yes, those things people used before that Google machine came along) and telling myself that one day I would see all of those places.

My first real chance to travel came after I joined the military. I was stationed in Europe for three years and was able to visit many countries. Since then I’ve managed to travel to a few more. So far, I’ve traveled to over 30 countries in five continents and I’m nowhere near finished.

The thought of going somewhere new gets me so giddy it’s ridiculous. And even though I work full time, I make travel a priority (I recently quit my safe 9-5 job).

Nothing upsets me more than when I say I’m going somewhere and someone asks me why. Why not?? I literally want to go everywhere and see everything and being a solo female traveler with a full time job doesn’t stop me! With this blog, I hope to inspire others to feel the same way.

I am currently based in South Florida and have two main goals: To show people that they can travel even if they have a full time job and to show how much more there is to Florida than the typical tourist attractions.

So join us as we continue to travel and explore this great big world!
