Hi, welcome to currently exploring!

I’m Christina.

A storyteller, traveler and marketer with an affinity for slow trips and connecting with local communities.

In 2014, I started this blog to document my journey of leaving an unfulfilling job to travel abroad for the first time – and like many 20-somethings, in search of a bit more purpose.

What started as a 4-month experiment, turned into a lifestyle I couldn’t give up.

If you’ve ever had a dream you thought was too far-fetched to chase – but wondered what might happen if you tried, this blog is for you.

After growing up with little to no exposure to traveling abroad, I’ve spent the past few years exploring more than 120 cities across 18 countries (and counting!), by drastically changing my career and lifestyle to prioritize it.

18 months in, I joined forces with the team at Grabr – to create access for anyone to get paid to travel, by bringing products for locals on their trips.

Currently, I’m based back in San Francisco to turn that dream into reality.

Here, find my favorite tips on travel, tech, and creating a life you love.

Let’s explore…
