Hi, I’m Lauren. I like to spend time outdoors, write, and take photos. For as long as I can remember, nature has been a source of joy and inspiration. I’m filled wonder for almost everything about the natural world. 

I graduated with a degree in Business, and I moved to Europe to complete my Master’s degree. My studies are part of the EU-Sponsored Erasmus Mundus European Masters in Tourism Management drawing focus to sustainable tourism development, environmental economics, and destination management. The program is facilitated by 3 European universities, situated Denmark, Slovenia, and Spain.

Several years ago this blog started as a home for the stories I love sharing with friends and family – to this day the purpose hasn’t changed. Join me on this adventure!

“We travel, initially, to lose ourselves, and we travel, next, to find ourselves. We travel to open our hearts and eyes. And we travel, in essence, to become young fools again—to slow time down and get taken in, and fall in love once more.”
