Hi, I’m Christina!

A San Francisco-based storyteller fueled by curiosity.

In 2014, at 25, I started this blog as I quit my job in corporate sales and set out on my first-ever trip abroad, solo on a shoestring budget with a dream.

Since, I’ve explored more than 120 places through these pages, always returning to my favorite: SFO.

Here, I share the tales behind adventures near and far to inspire your own.

Let’s explore…

First time on the blog?

Thanks truly for stopping by – please, leave a comment and say hello!

Since creating this little corner of the web, I’ve been a full-time traveler, a part-time traveler, unemployed, an entrepreneur, an advisor for some of the world’s top travel brands, in and out of love, a keynote speaker, and even absent and creatively stifled for several months, as I transitioned from independent maker to pouring myself into the founding team of a growth-focused startup aimed to make travel accessible for all.

Through my work personally and professionally, I aim to empower your own journeys in travel, lifestyle design and creativity.

Have a specific question or something you’d like to see? Just ask.

May my adventures encourage yours.

Here are a few of the most memorable moments so far:
