hi, i’m sarah

 I’m a writer and budding entrepreneur with a love for caffeine, capital gains, and seeing the world.

 I took my first international trip when I was 19. I’d never even been on a plane or inside an airport (!), and I was all alone. Oh, and did I mention I was going to Costa Rica for a MONTH?

One trip is all it took. I was hooked.

20+ countries later, traveling has impacted who I am and who I’ll be forever.

I wholeheartedly believe that travel can change us for the better, if we’re brave enough to let it.

Let’s be brave together.
