About Me

this darling world

Right after my husband and I got married, we took an incredible honeymoon that changed my goals forever. It all started in Venice, Italy, and it hasn’t stopped since.

I absolutely head over heels, fell in love with traveling. So this blog is a combination of everything I know; my background in journalism and marketing, plus my passion for travel.

I take these adventures with my husband, Jorge (pronounced George- confusing much?) in between full-time responsibilities. I work remotely doing digital marketing and editing and Jorge is a 9-5 engineer. We live in the beautiful city of Chicago. Have you been? I  highly recommend it!

We spend a lot of our downtime working on this blog, looking at dog memes, fostering dogs, and dog sitting. Did I mention dogs?

When I’m not busy adulting, I’m pinning new places to visit and planning some incredible trips. I also gets tons of my travel inspiration from Instagram. So, here I am sharing how we make it work, how you can make it work, and how a little careful planning can get you across the world.
