About Me

Hola! My name’s Courtney. I’m a self proclaimed wild child, wanderer, people watcher, spiritual being, queer, nomadic human. I’m 27 years young, originally from Davenport, Iowa.

I’ve been traveling on and off for FOUR years! Currently on my forth international trip to Latin America!

First: Brazil.

Second: South America.

Third: Guatemala and Mexico. [Where I created my blog]

And Now…

January 10th, 2018 My boyfriend, Darien and I, set off on a new adventure to South America, starting in Quito, Ecuador. We met serving at the Cheesecake Factory in Chicago while I was saving for my next adventure. I fell in love and somehow convinced him to travel the world with me.


This blog is a chance for me to tell my stories that are lost archives in my IPhone notes and scribbled journal entries that I thought I would never tell. Along with some tips that I learned along the way. Happy reading!
