I have been blogging since 2010 and predominantly spend most of my time traveling through Asia. I got my start as a travel blogger because I wanted to share with others how possible it was to explore the world on a budget.
There are so many places to explore and a lot of people don’t consider going abroad, especially to Asia because they think it is too expensive or they don’t know how to get around with such different languages and cultures — my main objective to being a travel blogger is to show everyone that destinations should never be off limits! I have been published in some regional travel magazines and hope to compile many of my stories into my first book.
As a blogger I want to show my readers that there are so many amazing destinations to visit no matter what your budget!
