Hi everyone! I’m Hannah, a 24-year-old American living in Berlin, Germany. I started this blog during my year in Australia and it has grown so much in the past year and a half. Since then I have spent a bit more time in the US and the UK. I love to travel and for the past year and a half I have pursued photography, although I’m entirely self-taught thanks to YouTube videos!
My goal for this blog is to help you achieve your traveling goals and inspire you to push yourself out of your comfort zone and experience what this amazing world has to offer. I also want to promote leading an authentic lifestyle, and to me that means embracing what you have to offer in life and going after your dreams. Accepting that you make mistakes, but learning how to pick yourself up and move on.
I obviously don’t know it all, but if I can help anyone along my way of figuring life out, then great. If you have any feedback, questions or just want to say hi (encouraged!) you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can follow me on any of the platforms to the right.
