Hi, I’m Christina

A storyteller and growth leader based in San Francisco.

I believe that time is our most valuable resource, change is the only constant, and experience is the best education.

In 2014, I created this blog to chronicle my journey stepping away from corporate America to travel abroad for the first time, with less than $1,000 to my name.

Fast forward 5 years and loads of travel life lessons learned later, now I’m helping to build a marketplace for travelers everywhere to fund their trips called Grabr.

Here, find my musings on travel, life and becoming a global citizen.


  • You’re researching your next vacation
  • You’d rather create a life you don’t need a vacation from
  • You live for impromptu adventures
  • You refuse to accept the status quo
  • You love to set – and smash – big, hairy, audacious goals
  • You cherish the small moments
  • You always read the reviews before investing
  • You’d prefer to ask a local

I’m so glad that you’ve arrived.

I love it when you say hello, and I hope you’ll come back often.
