About Me

Growing up in Missouri, I craved exploring places beyond the walls of my small town. At a young age I quickly learned how to trade comfort for adventure. Shortly after I turned 20, I embarked on a 6-month solo journey around Europe, UK, and the Middle East. This empowering backpacking trip was just my first taste of solo travel.

Hi, I’m Natalie.

Although my roots are in the Midwest, I currently live in New York City. When I’m not traveling, you can find me working in the art department on film sets! I’m obsessed with places I have never been, and I’ve left parts of myself in countries all over the world. This blog is my love letter to all the special places and people I’ve met along the way.
