Hi, welcome to currently exploring!

I’m Christina, and in 2014 I created this space to document my journey of leaving a stable career in corporate sales behind to pursue my gypsy dreams of travel.

With little savings in tow, having yet to leave the country prior, I sublet my San Francisco apartment and set out on a 4-month mission to experience as many places as I could manage, while figuring out how to make my so-called “pipe dream” a reality.

Since, I’ve been a full-time traveler, a part-time traveler and a several-time travel tech startup marketer through 17 countries and 100+ cities, gathering more moments and lessons that make my heart sing with inspiration than in the 25 years before.

Here, I share tips, stories and resources from my travels — at home and abroad — to connect with fellow wanderlusters and encourage you to pursue your own adventures.

Off the blog, I’m working around the clock to create access to travel and global goods for people everywhere at

I’d love to hear your story also, and hope you’ll explore with me often.
