About Me

Hey there! I’m KP, and I was born and raised in Florida with an amazingly supportive family and community. My love affair with travel has been alive since I was young. Starting with cruises in the Caribbean with my family, to skiing in Colorado, to taking my first trip abroad to Costa Rica, the travel bug bit me and hasn’t let go.

After learning Spanish in Costa Rica and studying hotel management in Switzerland, I knew that I was meant to live abroad – at least for some portion in my life. As destiny has it, I met my boyfriend in Ireland during my last few months of university in 2013, and moved to Australia soon after graduating to live with him.

We spent a year in Sydney, traveling, working and falling in love, which brought us to the decision of where to go next. This has led us to travel through South East Asia since March of 2015.

I started this blog in 2013 after traveling through Europe, mainly as a way to let my Mom know I was alive and well, and now it has grown more than I could ever imagine. I want to inspire others to not categorize themselves as a traveler. I’m neither budget nor luxury, and I believe there’s a way to travel comfortably without breaking the bank.

I also want to show you how you can work online while on their road, keep your resume updated throughout your journey and much more.

This is what my story and my travels are all about, and I can’t wait to share it with you.

That’s just a little background info about me,and I’m looking forward to sharing my experiences on my blog!

    I found your blog through your guest post on currently exploring. I moved to Sydney in 2013 after meeting my aussie boyfriend in Europe as well! I agree that it is a very brave thing to move for love (not to mention a real life lifetime movie? hehe)
    I moved back home when my visa expired but we are moving to New Zealand in July and then back to Australia once the partner visa gets sorted.

    Just bookmarked your blog 🙂

      Aw thanks so much! I’m moving to Thailand now that my Visa expires, and then hopefully sorting out our partner visa as well! NZ will be amazing! Congrats on everything 🙂 Looking forward to following your adventures!

    Hey KP, my name is Andrea Olvera and I am new to you and your website. I just wanted to say that your journey has inspired me to trust God’s plan for me. I am actually hoping to travel and do mission work in a program called the World Race in which I travel to five countries in nine months. I truly feel God has put this on my heart and I feel I am to fulfill his purpose for me. Anyways, long story short, McCall Aldridge told me about you and I am so excited she did. I hope to stay in touch with your blog and your journey. Thank you!
