Ann the adventurist on a tree within Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park in Tasmania, Australia


My name is Ann. I was born in a small town in Florida called Hollywood. Moved around a number of times, within the United States and abroad. I am currently based in Houston, Texas. I’ve traveled to over 20 U.S. States and 6 continents.

This blog is written and edited by me. All photos are taken with a Samsung Galaxy phone or Canon Powershot G15, unless stated otherwise.


What is this blog about?

  • Do you love to travel?
  • Do you travel to explore the local or indigenous foods?
  • Is your travel style a mix of adventure and learning about the culture?
  • Do you enjoy spending time with Mother nature?

If you answered YES to any of those questions, then you have come to the right place. If not, hopefully you can still find something useful on my site.


Why do I travel?

To create new adventures.
Try unusual or unknown foods.
To learn a new language.
Discover different cultures.
Discover more about myself.
To step out of my comfort zone.
To dispel the myth on why the USA is NOT the greatest country on earth.
And most importantly, meet locals and fellow travelers.

Cradle Mountain, Lake St Clair National Park in Australia with Jump Tours

When I initially began traveling as an adult, it was about visiting the popular landmarks, top sights, and taking photos. But that got tedious. These days, what I truly cherish the most about traveling is connecting with the locals. Those are my fondest memories over the fun and adventurous activities I seek for.

Thank you to all the Airbnb hosts who allowed me into their homes abroad.

Thank you to all the kind locals who showed me around their city or made sure I had a good time.

If you are new to travel, I will say this: since tomorrow is not guaranteed, why not live your best life now? One of my biggest regrets was waiting for someone to travel with. I waited too long, so now I travel alone 98% of the time. It is still one of my BEST decisions ever!

I hope that through this blog, I can inspire you to think outside of the box, travel, eat well and live well.

So join me as I discover new adventures!!

Let’s connect!
