Becoming a Travel & Lifestyle Blogger

So I’ve begun this mission to start a blog about my travels and lifestyle. I want to share with people my tips for traveling and what inspired me to spend my last semester of college backpacking Europe with two online courses. I want to share my story and I hope that if you’re reading this, you want to hop on this journey with me.

My journey dates back to two years ago when I started this blog. You can find my young and naive first blog post on my homepage. I was so excited about traveling and so nervous to be following my dream of packing a backpack and traveling for over a month. Everyone told me I was crazy and that I shouldn’t do it. People outright told me “no! you’re not allowed.” I laughed in those people’s faces because I knew this was a journey I needed to take. I needed to step outside my comfort zone and travel to unknown and inspiring places. I wanted to learn about new cultures and see beautiful museums and castles. I wanted the opportunities I had seen so many of my favorite Instagram travelers have. So I said to myself, “screw it!” I decided to plan a trip to Europe by myself and I spent the next four months learning everything I could about solo backpacking. Little did I know the most knowledge came from being the actual backpacker. I learned from mistakes and failures, and I also learned from major successes.

Now, looking back at it all, I want to create a way to share my experiences and advice with people. I want to tell you all about my favorite cities and hostels, what backpack was the best for traveling, the websites I found most useful, and more. But at the same time, I’m looking for a way to expand this traveling dream into a business so I can turn my dreams into a reality. I want your help and advice on what I should do to help my dream of becoming a full time wanderer come true. I’ve been thinking about creating an E-Book about my tips for planning a month-long stay abroad while maintaining a small budget (which was actually not as difficult as I thought it would be.) Give me your thoughts and ideas and tell me what information you want to read more about. Leave a comment below or shoot me an email at

The good news is regardless the outcome I have a trip to Athens, Mykonos, and Kefalonia planned for next summer that I’ll be sharing with you all my tips and tricks to keep the cost of that trip down. I’ve also created a travel Instagram account named @herwanderlustsoul_

A little sneak peak at the content I share on my Instagram! All of the photos are mine as well:)

Check it out if possible and let me know what you think! I’m looking forward to hearing your feedback and advice. We’re on this journey together and I’m looking forward to creating a space where I can share my passions with you all!
