Welcome to my blog!

I’m a 23-year-old from Chicago traveling solo for the year. I’ve traveled to 33 countries so far. I’m excited to return to some of my favorite places this year, as well as visit some new!

First stop: Africa. I’m spending 10 days between Rwanda and Uganda. Then I head to Tanzania to volunteer with Neema International for three months. Next is an overland tour through Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia, and South Africa. After that, three months in Europe, then another few months in New Zealand on a working holiday visa.

Hope you enjoy reading about my adventures around the globe! I’ll be sharing stories, photos, tips and tricks for traveling, and whatever else I feel inspired to write about.

I’ve titled it My Purposeful Adventure because I will have an intention everywhere I go. Whether my purpose be something meaningful, like doing work for an organization in Tanzania that I care deeply about, or something silly, like eating as much gelato as I possibly can in Rome, I will go into each day having a clear idea of why I am where I am.

Feel free to follow along with my journey on Instagram!
